Parc Izvor – review and pictures by Patlagik
M-Tribe Community member Patlagik was at the Sticky & Sweet Tour concert in Bucharest last night and here are his images and his review of the show.
“I arrived at Parc Izvor at 3 PM. There were three entrance points and I chose the one closest to the stage. There were approx. 30 fans already waiting on the grass. Even though barriers were set up, they didn’t allowed us to queue until 4 PM. Even though they said they will let us in the venue at 5:30 PM, and eventually we got in at 6:30 PM, right after Madonna finished her sound check.”
“Paul Oakenfold was on at approx. 8:15 PM. His set was fun and the people from the front started jumping and singing. He also played his remix of Celebration. At a moment I was… let’s say surprised: one of the dancers started running on the stage wrapped in plastic bubbles.A fter Oakenfold finished we waited another hour for the queen to arrive. She was very late: the show started at 9:50 PM. Sweet Machine was on and I couldn’t hear nothing because everybody was screaming so loud… it was incredible!!!”
“She looks so fresh and young. I heard that the people that were on Pitch A, Pitch B and VIP were like dead people. As for the Golden Circle – everybody was singing, screaming and jumping.”
“Madonna was very chatty: she said “Hello Romania” during Beat Ges On and said “Romania” and “Bucuresti” many times. It was funny to hear her saying “Bucuresti” (Romanian) instead of “Bucharest” (English)!”
“At the beginning of “You Must Love Me” she talked about how racism is very spread in Eastern Europe and that the people should have equal rights. After that (or before – don’t remember because of the excitement) many people from Gold Circle raised a A4 paper sheets with “Romania loves you” written on it. She replied with “I love you too” and then everybody started screaming! Just before the ending of “You Must Love Me”, me and a girl started to scream “We love you” and in the next second everybody started screaming the same thing! At the end of “Give It 2 Me” she jumped off the stage – everybody was singing and jumping!”
“In conclusion it was an incredible show – a show that can only be surpassed by a new Madonna show!”
