”You are the best crowd so far”
“This tour was very different then the last one in my opinion. It was clean, less polished. Her voice wasn’t that much supported and the band seems more like a band instead of a tape. And I like that. It was back to basic and her voice sounded great!
M had to work the crowd because apart from the opening and “the beat goes on” the other arrangement of “human nature”, “vogue” and “die another day” were not very good in my opinion and the crowd did not respond well to them. It wasn’t until “in to the groove” the crowd warmed up.
M spoke, yelled, ooo-ed and aaah-ed and tried to make contact with the crowd from the beginning. So, either she listened to the critics and really tried to make it work or she was just in a good mood. She “shined” the whole evening.
She said “You are the best crowd so far” and you could see that she meant that and it was her own doing.
Highlights for me where the choreography of “Heart Beat”, everything of “Borderline and she’s not me, Devil wouldn’t recognize me, you must love me and like a prayer`
All the other songs where great as well.
The arena was almost sold out but it seems there where more people on the field then in 2005. The Golden circle was also very crowded. We where seated in the ICON section and had a great view.
There where no technical difficulties as well in Amsterdam, al the screens seems to be working.
So it was a wonderfull night in Amsterdam/City but she really has to lose that ugly wig that she wears at the end!”
