Kincsem Park review, videos and pictures by Robert
Madonna delivered yet another kick-ass show at Kincsem Park yesterday night, and this is the thrilled report M-Tribe Community member Robert aka hr posted in our Forum tonigh right after the concert.
“Well, first of all let me tell you that it wasn’t sure at all, that I’m going to see this show, which I found a bit unfair, as I thought my long work as editor on a Hungarian fanpage would make me have a pretty good karma when it comes to Madonna. But I couldn’t pay the GC tickets, and I was very dissapointed, untill a friend of mine helped me out, and I am really grateful for that, I couldn’t have lived all these through without him…
Me and my friends went to Kincsem Park at 5 pm yesterday, there was a great fan organised list which was written in the order of appaerance at the venue. We got wirstbands and everything. I was number 39, which was… pretty bad, untill I heard how some people got 88 and 160…
The organasation was good, there was only one weak point… When they were just about to let us in, they said NO, wait, and made us sit down again and wait in the sauna-like crowd, which was just about to break in. The soundcheck was already running by that time, she was rehearsing the first 4 song, and she sang Human Nature two times.
So, there we were, hundreds of fans, waiting outside, listening the soundcheck and hoping, we could see a bit of it. But we had to wait another one and a half our. My ticket almost ripped apart by then and one organiser said that I have to go to some ladies, who will check if it’s real. I thought ‘NO WAY’, I won’t give u front row because of that… 🙂
When they finally opened the gates, we started to run like craaaaaaazy, and I am very glad of myself, cause I ran really very quickly. Of course I had to run 5 kms three time every week for that but it was worth it.
I had to do something with my ticket, so I foled it up, just where it was ripped, and I held it while the girl read it with her machine.
After that I just ran as quickly as possible, and it was the most amazing moment, cause it was near to sunset, and Madonna was rehearsing Miles Away. It was fantastic, I won’t ever forget that feeling. Running through the park and looking constantly at the stage while I heard „You always love me more miles away…” I just ran and ran I couldn’t really believe it but in a second I was in front row, right in front of the B stage in the middle….
I was in complete shock because of that place. I looked up, and there she was, singing Miles Away, looking at us, laughing and looking fabolous. She did Frozen right after that, followed Ray of Light. She asked us if we knew the lyrics (she seemed to be a bit unsure about them, which I just can’t understand as she is singing that songs since 2001…). Anyway, it all was just like in Udine, she put the microphone between her knees and we sang the song louder then my ears could imagine it. 🙂
Then she looked at a guy, she clearly recognized him, and ask where he was from. I didn’t understand what he said, but then I learnt he was from New York, and Madonna jumped down from the stage to hihg-five him and handed her pick to him, which was a bit hard, as we all tried to reach her, and I managed to touch her hand as well (that’s why my video about that is soo shaky). 🙂
She then got on the stage again and walked back, when the people in the Gold Circle realised that she is going away, started to sing happy birthday, she turned around (she was on the main stage), she said something in her mic (“Thank you”, I guess), but it was turned off. She tried again but we still didn’t hear anything, and she walked off.
And the long wait started… Oakenfold was pretty boring, only Celebration got a big roar and waving hands, the others weren’t that good imo.
Of course Guy Oseary and the dancers made their rounds, I gave Guy our Birthday video made for Madonna on a CD, and he made his usual photos about the crowd.
We were all dying for some water, lots of people fainted and I felt close to that, but fortunately I got some drink from other fans.
There was a chance of rain during the show, so they covered the stage, which took loooots of time, and while they did that, DJ Enferno started playing some songs. Eventually the rain only started during the rave section, so if they would have started the concert earlier we all could have gone home before the rain started. But they didn’t know anything for sure, so they had to cover the stage. The roadies though were pretty funny. When they tested the big LED screen above the B stage, they played a bit woth the corwd. They walked above the screen and pretended that they are pushing it up. The audience loved it, and they even shouted like those weight-lifters. Later another roadie came out (they clearly wanted to do something with teh crowd, to not to be that upset because of the delay), he came out in a self made super hero cloak and mask, run through the stage and teased the crowd.
Madonna was very late, she came out around ten, and the crowd was pretty impatient untill then, but they forgott hat when the intro started.
The show went down very well, I don’t really know what to say about it. She had a HUGE smile during every single song, of course she said “Hello Budapest” “That’s what I’m talking about Hungary”, and such things.
My “first moment” arrived during Human Nature. She was singing whole verses looking into my eyes, and I sang with her. It was amazing, but that wasn’t it at all.
The next eye contact was during Holiday, when she looked at me, and then smiled. We sang “holiday, celebration” lines together. 🙂
BUT the absolute highlight of the show arrived during You Must Love Me. I had an idea months before that, about hundreds of papers showed up during that song. So we printed many of “Hungary Loves You, Happy Birthday” etc. papers and made a campaing for the project. So when she sat on her chair, we held up those papers, and it was fantastic, especially for me, as I seen my vision coming true (Guy Oseary filmed it btw). She was very surprised, she even said “It’s amazing” to Monte, but she didn’t do any kind of a speech which saddened me, but not for too long.
Almost from the beginning of the song she was looking at me, like she knew that it was all my idea, of course I was very lucky, as I was standing right in front of her chair. She looked at me, I smiled at her, she smiled back and WINKED :), I winked back of course. It was sooo great. 🙂 Words can not express.
After that she was looking at me a lot, and we sang a few verses together, it was just purely amazing, and I couldn’t believe to my eyes. There she was, the women whom I adored for soo long, for her amazing talent and work, and when she did that and I saw her on stage everything got together and I felt that everything is the most perfect. I felt that I know her now a lot more, cause I was able to look deep in her eyes, and she wanted me to do soo. That’s a moment that I want to live through again.
I really don’t know what else to say, she didn’t jump down after Give It 2 Me, as the stage was very close to us, and she didn’t have enough space.
She was very joyful and playful during the concert she had the funniest faces and she was even laughing about herself all the time. Of course, only the people watching ehr closely, were able to see how interactive she was with the crowd and how much happier and relaxed she was on stage, than last year.
When the concert ended I felt I am the happiest guy on the world, and I couldn’t think of anything else, only those eyes which finally showed me something more behind the face.
I wish everyone could live through those moments, and I hope my pictures and videos will show how great this night was.”
