• Madonna at Palau Sant Jordi – June 20, 2012
The MDNA Tour will confirm Madonna as The Queen of Pop! Madonna proved it definitely during her first indoor gig of the MDNA Tour. The concert took place at the Palau Sant Jordi, the concert venue with the most beautiful walk to it in beautiful nature and alongside amazing buildings. Late afternoon, she rehearsed Hung Up, Give Me All Your Luvin and Masterpiece amongst others. Doors went open at 7.15 pm, Martin Solveig played his 1 hour set set as from 8.15 pm and Madonna only started at 10.15 pm, this seems to become her MDNA time this tour. ‘What’s up, Barcelona’ and Madonna was ready for an amazing concert of 1 hour and 50 minutes. She talked about MDNA and told us we’re all from the same DNA, ‘You all know me by now’. The show has a lot of highlights like Express Yourself and Give Me All Your Luvin but the applause during Noboby Knows Me is again very captivating. Turn Up The Radio seems to become the sing-a-long anthem of the MDNA Tour.
Madonna ended her Superbowl gig with World Peace and started her first gig of the MDNA Tour as the concert of Piece. If you see the fans’ reaction to Beautiful Killer during Martin Solveig’s set, this is definitely one of their most favourite tracks. Madonna rehearsed Express Yourself, Vogue, I’m Addicted and I’m A Sinner amongst others. The noise of the helicopter flying over during Gang Bang is really awesome. Fans are really happy to have Papa Don’t Preach back in the set. She’s really proud of her backing group Kalakan and presents them in a very proud way. First Madonna fans showing up with No Fear T-shirts and Strong Women T-shirts. During the show, she teaches us a new saying : Fuck Yeah ! ‘Are you having a good time ? Fuck Yeah !’, ‘Do you wanna hear the next song ? Fuck Yeah !’ and she ends with an even more beautiful saying to her fans ‘I am nothing without you’.
