I have Confessed. Have you?
Thanks to M-ribe reader Luis for sharing his memories of the July 3rd nd July 17th concerts at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.
“WOW. Sorry its taken me this long to write about the tour but I was waiting to see the Queen one more final time
and I am so glad that I did.
There are no words that can describe how
amazing this tour is. If you have not yet seen it, please do because if it aired on TV, it will never compare to the energy you feel at being in Mmadonna’s presence.
The first time I saw the show on July 3rd at the Madison Square
Garden I was blown away by everything, the clips from the W magazine shoot, the disco ball entrance, all the props, it was just
mind blowing. The nite of the 3rd I though was awesome, boy was I wrong, she was on fire on the nite of the 18th.
She was very happy to be back in New York City as she professed to the crowd.
She told us how lucky we were to live in NYC and how lucky we were to be alive (given the current situation with our brothers and
sister of the middle east).
All nite long she teased and played with the crowd surrounding the catwalk. I have come to realize that after sitting in two different
sections that the best seats were where we sat the second nite. The nite of
the 3rd we had seats in Sec 1 row K, the second nite Sec 3 row Z, which was right
next to the third row of POD A.
By the way, Leonardo DiCaprio was
sitting 1st row of Pod A and seemed to be enjoying the show, but was very incognito
with his baseball cap on, and was more worried about people taking pics of him than he was of the show.
Nevertheless, he was very gracious to his fans in the POD section that he took pics with.
I also got to see Madiva on both nites, and on the nite of the 18th I
finally summed up the courage to take a photo with her.
She is so amazing, and such a nice person to be around, and converse with, Madiva I Love U. I Love Madonna too, hehe.
I have to say that the best songs for me on this tour were all of them, great arrangements for the old hits as well, but I definitely loved “Sorry”, the “Sorry” interlude, “Music”, “Future Lovers”, and of course “Hung Up”.
OOOPS i forgot “I Love NY” and “Ray of Light”, damn, she was on fire
during “Ray of Light“, I love the arrangement Stuart Price did on this tour, really good, stuff.
During the whole nite we catched Tony, the person who we see in the
DVD “I’m going to tell you a Secret”, help Madonna with her costume changes,
we got to speak with him and he was really really nice.
I do regret not being able to catch my 2 favorite dancers Cloud and
Mihran, I love them so much, and the energy and playfulness that Cloud gives the crowd is so spectacular, and Mihran can really dance, the boy has got some moves that are out of this world.
I love the re-invention tour, but it will be very difficult for Madonna to ever overcome any other tour, this tour has been the
concert of the year, and if you still have not seen it, get your butt there and buy a
ticket, because it’s totally worth it.
NYC loves you MADONNA, and I hope we get to see more of you again.
I met some great girls in my section the nite of the 18th, and I just don’t think that nite would have been the same if we hadn’t met. XOXO to them.
GOD, why does it have to end, THIS TOUR has been the best ever, and I wish I could just go and see the show one more time.
It was so sad, Madonna doesnt make time go slowly, in fact the whole show seemed like it went by so quick.
I knew once she got to “La Isla Bonita”, I knew it was ALMOST over and I would have to give my goodbye to THE QUEEN, but she
played around alot with our section, she totally rocks.
The cowboy hat has totally become a trend at the show now, it’s not the same if she doesn’t take the hat from someone during
“Let It Will Be”.
MAN, how HOT is the “Music” version, I LOVES IT. I LOVES EVERYTHING.
And so my confessions tour experience has come to an end.
I have confessed.
