A Madonna experience to end all Madonna experiences
Thanks to M-Tribe member David aka davi3Mo for this report and for his pictures from the June 10th show at the Glendale Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.
“I managed to get front row tickets to the June 10th show at the Glendale Arena. Looking back, it feels like a dream. She spends so much time talking and performing for the front rows.
My friend, James, and I made t-shirts before the show that read, “Long Live the Queen.”
It was so worth it cause half-way through the show she pointed and winked at me as she passed by. I couldn’t believe she noticed me and the shirt. I guess it was difficult for her to miss it since every time she passed I would yell something or jump up and
down to get her attention. After she pointed, everyone around me was like, “She totally pointed at you.”
It was def the highlight of the five shows I’ve attended. At one point she even knelt down in front of me and put the mic in my face. The picture I took of that moment
turned out kinda blurry but you can see her looking directly into my camera.
It was a Madonna experience to end all Madonna experiences. Each concert has gotten better each time. Not just the show, but also my experiences at the show.
A couple moments that stood out this time…
She yelled at a fan for not standing up and kept yelling at him to stand up. She yelled something like, “Why are you sitting? Did you not enjoy the show? Do you want your money back motherf—er?”
She threw water at the first row after taking a sip.
She sounded amazing on “Drowned World.” It’s been my favorite Madonna
song forever now. It was crazy being so close to her and her glancing at me during the song.
She mentioned how she loved her front row bitches.
I stood next to three girls who were dressed like Madonna circa the Virgin period and they had been brought down to the front row because of the way they were dressed.
A crew member told me that Madonna would love our shirts. He jokingly said I should throw it on stage. I told him that I would if I could tell security as I was being escorted out that he told me too.
We then both decided that I shouldn’t. 🙂
Madonna seemed very happy with the front few rows. We were up and
dancing the entire time. A fight broke out behind me on Row 2 and some man was escorted out by security. Then a fan standing closest to where the catwalk and the stage meet kept calling security and trying to get the people around him to go back to their seats and didn’t think it was fair that they also got to stand there even though there is a lot of room and that space is suppose to be for the first row to crowd in. Security told him that everyone on the first row was allowed to squeeze in as much as they could.
FYI, I know we all have a hard time getting our hands on the tickets we want and once we do we want to have THE Madonna experience, but come on, you’re suppose
to crowd in around the catwalk and the first floor.
I asked the security guard in front of me if he liked Madonna. He said he could careless, but found it funny that he kept stealing glances whenever she came by.
Her hair looked the best it ever has on this tour. It’s getting longer and she looks really young with it. There’s a sweetness about
her that I really felt whenever she talked or performed to us on the first row. Something that I think most people miss about her.
Here are some pics. She was moving so much and I was shaking at times
that it was difficult to get pics, but I did manage to take some great shots.
