”It doesn’t take much to get her in the mood”
“Planning my set for a Madonna show is tough because she covers the whole spectrum. It’s a white, black, gay, straight crowd, aged between 15 and 60. It’s no good making it too underground. Despite the big venues it’ll still be clubby and I’ll get the crowd going. And it doesn’t take much to get Madonna in the mood.”
Madonna’s favourite DJ Paul Oakenfold, who opens the concerts of the 2009 of the Sticky & Sweet Tour, talking about how she’s very easy to get “in the mood” and how he doesn’t need much motivation when she’s performing live on stage.
Oakenfold insists it’s a “privilege” sharing the same bill as her and tells Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Her fans adore her. I remember we did four sell-out shows in Buenos Aires in front of 80,000 people each night. It’s a privilege for crowds like that.”
The DJ is also producing new songs for Madonna’s upcoming Greatest Hits release.
He said: “We’ve been in New York working on the tunes. She’s a truly lovely lady, but she’s the boss so everyone will just have to wait for the new stuff.”
