What a Way to Start Summer 06
Thanks to M-Triber Marco1 for this nice report of his “Confessions Tour” experience in Montréal.
“Well my Fellow Tribers,
First things first, to all the ones who have not seen this show, prepare yourself for a concert spectacle of our generation!
Having been now to my third Madonna concert in the new millenium, each show is different and amazing. I have been to the DWT and to the re-Invention tour, and now to the Confessions Tour. I find each tour is perfect in its own way, so I wont even try to compare her previous shows to this one, as I find you cannot compare her tours to one another.
It all started with a traffic jam in Montreal. Having arrived at our destination in Montreal hours before the concert, we started to leave and head to the concert at around 6pm. Unfortunately we were stuck in traffic for over 1.5 hours, trying to leave Laval and heading into downtown Montreal. The parking was a bit of an issue, but luckily we found a spot at around 8:30pm. As we entered the venue, people everywhere were energized and excited. Alot of people were dressed to the nines, and some of course were there dressed up as the Queen herself. It was amazing seeing all the people. Montreal was a great host to the tour, Montreal was in Madonna Fever.
As I was paying for my merchandise, which I was almost overcharged for, I heard the first song slowly being introduced, I was anxious to get to my seat, which was luckily located close to the where I bought the merchandise. We arrived at our seats as Madonna exited the Disco Ball.
The show started off in high energy and it did not stop for 2 hours.
The whole audience sang along to all new and old hits, including all her new tracks from her “Confessions on a Dance Floor” album. It suprised me how many people knew the lyrics to all her new songs, even though they were not commercially released. Her “Get Together” number was really alot of fun. “Like a Virgin” was amazing. ” Live To Tell” was beautifully done, and I felt alot of emotion from that song, which I am sure Madonna was trying to get across. I curse all those writers and critics who were trashing this performance, and for not revealing the truth about the message of this specific performance. “Jump”, “Sorry”, “I Love New York”, “Let It Will Be”, “Like It Or Not”, “Erotica/You Thrill Me”, “Music”, and “Ray of Light” were amazing performances.
Madonna’s voice was amazing for the whole night. Her dancing and her dancers were gracing the stage with perfection. “Paradise” and “Drowned World” gave her major thumps up. During “Hung Up”, she got the whole crowd screaming with her, “Time Goes By So Slowly” for over 3 minutes, I have never seen a crowd stay on Key for so long, it would have woken up the dead, thats how loud this crowd was. As predicted this crowd was insane and loud!
During her interaction with the audience, and after her suggestion of moving to Montreal, as the crowd went silent, I yelled “I Love You” from the top of my lungs, and Madonna replied “Thank You“.
This felt amazing 🙂
This show will be a definate high point in my life. I wish all of you who have not seen this show, the best time of your life, when she comes to a city near you! Stand up, cheer Loud and Proud, and enjoy the greatest show on earth.
It will be the fastest and most exciting 2 hours of your life, but it will be worth every penny you paid for, even if you had to pay the EBay prices. I Have No Regrets!”
