The O2 goes Ga-Ga (and naked) for Madonna
The Sticky & Sweet Tour made the double at the O2 tonight for a show that all fans describe as even better than opening night.
It was smoother, and Madonna especially was in a relaxed mood that made her interact with the audience in a more spontaneous way for some non-scripted skits.
First of all, judging from tonight’s show, La Isla Bonita seems to be set to become the barechested guys song. Madonna continuously asked her male fans to , and actually having quite a hard time as the audience wasn’t extremely keen of showing off.
So kept asking, and demanding, all the guys in the venue to strip for her, eventually getting quite a few front row fans to take their tees off – and part of her crew as well.
Madonna was also confused about the date today, continually shouting to celebrate Independence Day, – Happy Birthday America – until Ray Of Light when someone in the crew finally told her today is the 5th…
Front row tonight was Lady Gaga going crazy for Madonna between Die Another Day when she arrived – fresh from supporting Take That at Wembley Stadium – until Ray Of Light when she left to avoid any drama and Ethan Hawke (with his two daughters) who looked utterly enthralled throughout. Also in attendance were director Jonas Akerlund, who got a “stand up you Swedes – I’ve made you enough money!” special recognition, and Filth & Wisdom star Richard E. Grant.
