”We may not have electricity, but we have love”
For the first time ever, Madonna’s final MDNA show in Cordoba last night suffered a major power outage that left the entire Kempes stadium in the dark for about one hour.
The night started with a crowd-packed, energetic sound-check, but power went off at the end of “Open Your Heat” but Madonna didn’t it let her down and ended the song singing in a megaphone. Then the entire venue remained in the darkness with the exception of emergency lighting, and after technicians managed to get power back the show continued with “Vogue“.
“Lost electricity at the show. First time that’s happened but we made the best of it! #MDNAcordoba”, Monte Pittman said on his Twitter, then later on during the long night posted great pictures from “Like a Prayer” ans “Celebration”.
“Crazy final show. 2 generators went down in the middle of the show. Challenges to the very end. But we did it so proud of the whole team”, dancer Stephanie Nguyen commented.
“WOW..and thats a wrap for the MDNA tour!!…What a journey…My heart is full right now!!… Thanks Cordoba for making our last show a memorable one!! .. =0)) Love and Light xoxox”, dancer Derrell Bullock also said.
Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary also added a rather different picture to his collection of sound-check shots from the concert. “Thank you Madonna and fans for an experience of a lifetime!” he said.
