Kabasco’s report from Moscow
“Look guys, I’m doing this for 24 years and always wanted to come to Russia, finally I’m here!”
“That was the best show I’ve seen so far!
Madonna looked happier than ever, smiled and had so much fun, the sound was enormous (comparing to Bercy, for example). Performance was flawless. Well, except for very minor problems with microphone.
DJ Paul Oakenfold started his set at 7pm, played for 1 hour exactly. The show started at 9:30pm.
Weather was excellent, thank God, lucky for dance floor and fan-zone. Madonna indeed had special heaters blowing hot air on stage.
John Lennon’s song during the usual speach was a surprise! She also thanked Moscow‘s mayor Luzhkov for helping with the organization. (We all know it was terrible, ticket sales, moving stages, etc – bunch of idiots trying to make some cash).
Now, excuse me, where were the “religious protestors”? Didnt see any. What about “cross crashing and hurting Madonna”? Didn’t happen either. Later I heard on the radio that five religious protestors were caught by police. They coudln’t even get close to the stadium – LOL – enjoying the police department now, I suppose.
Also, Moscow police reported “record low number of incidents during the show”. Only 11 people were taken to custody including 5 religious protestors. Rest 6 were just drunk”. More than 7,000 military and police force were protecting us all.
Crowd was dancing like there’s no tomorrow, we all realize that yet again Madonna ignored all the stupid rumours and threats and made history – first show in Russia. Even during her speach she mentioned “Look guys, I’m doing this for 24 years and always wanted to come to Russia, finally I’m here!”
Special thanks to Kabasco for sharing his experience and his pictures with the Tribe.
