Anxious, nervous, excited, and wanting to ”Jump!”
During the Re-Invention Tour, I was one of the lucky few who got to see Madonna in the pit – and to actually shake her hand! Therefore I thought the anticipation of seeing her during her next tour would actually be somewhat less stressful, as surely nothing could probably top looking into Madonna’s eyes and saying “I love you!”
Then, she released the “Confessions album” – and I was hooked yet again!
It’s easily my most favorite album – the one I have been waiting for her to release all my life: all-dance, up-tempo powerhouse songs. There’s not a bad track on the entire album! Each one just rocks my world. And to think she was going to tour around it was amazing!
I knew the moment I heard Future Lovers it would be the tour opener. It gives me chills every time. And though I had a brief pause when the rumored sections were announced – I was like, “Equestrian???” – I knew M enough to trust her judgement.
Now, as the tour moves into its final preparations, I feel like I did in the summer of 2004: anxious, nervous, excited, and I just want to “Jump!” Seeing the behind-the-scenes clips with Cloud and the other dancers truly makes me feel like I am seeing old friends again that I haven’t seen for 2 years.
It doesn’t matter that maybe friends, family, coworkers don’t often understand the obsession that is being a Madonna fan. For my part, I can’t tell how anyone can sit still when they hear “Hung Up.” But I’m so glad that the icon who I’ve followed since the beginning is still going strong, still teaches, still entertains, still moves me. She has provided the soundtrack to her fans’ lives.
Let the Confessions begin!
