Italians in Prague – Vincy’s report
Our friend from Italy Vincy, attended last night’s show of Madonna’s Confessions Tour in Prague. Here are his impressions and show report, that he would like to share with MadonnaTribers.
Vincy says: “The show started at 21 pm local time, the arena was full of local fans along with die hard fans who have already seen Madonna in Rome, Paris and Amsterdam.
Madonna greets the arena with a ‘Hello Prague‘ as usual right before Like A Virgin. When Jump starts
she pronounces some phrases in Czech and then in English. She was really in great shape and didn’t look
tired at all although she is been out there touring for quite some months now.
Live To Tell was followed by the public in religious silence and at the end people were applauding in a
loud and happy way, indicating they had really appreciated the number and got the sense of it.
Sorry, seemed to be the song the public was more familiar with. Everyone was singing and dancing.
In general the public in Prague was very formal and followed the show in their seats, only when Madonna
asked them to dance and jump during I Love New York and Ray Of Light they finally got up their seats and “did their thing”.
Then it was time to show the flags and Madonna names Italy first, as a group of Italian fans, on her left, proudly showed her their flag.
After Italy she names Slovakia and France. Madonna asks for other flags but there aren’t more. She then spoke about peace and freedom
and remembers how Prague knows what it means to gain peace and freedom. The public responds to her words but doesn’t seem convinced by her words.
With Drowned World the public litteraly explodes, they love the song and Madonna let the Italian fans next to her sing into her microphone. Then she let the fans from
the other side of the catwalk sing into her mic as well.
Madonna touches fans’ hands in a very confident way during the show, while the fans sometimes are so starstruck that they seem
they are afraid to touch her back. The public dances during the big Hung Up finale even if it doesn’t seem they want to shout the “Time Goes By So Slowly” part.
The balloons arrive, the show is over and the public goes out of the venue in a very calm way.
Madonna was splendid as usaul, even if there were a few technical and audio difficulties
during Live To Tell. But she went ahead with it perfectly”
