Madonna’s Grammy Limousine on show at the Henry Ford
The 1979 Lincoln Continental Limousine that carried Madonna into the Grammy Awards ceremony in 2001 is currently on display at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, where the exhibit “Rock Stars’ Cars and Guitars” celebrates flagrant excess seductively.
Madonna’s stretch limousine, too big to enter the theater hosting the awards, was cut into three sections after having its engine and transmission removed.
Reassembled and containing Madonna, the car was pushed rather than driven onto the awards stage for her show-stealing “Music” performance with a set design by Tribe, Inc.’s Bruce Rodgers – his first collaboration with the Queen of Pop.
Because the Madonna Grammy performance was so successful Rodgers was in a very positive creative zone when her started sketching for her what later become the amazing Drowned World Tour set.
