Once Upon A Time
There was a time, in 2004 to be exact, when Madonna fans were not used to see M rehearsing on stage during her show’s soundcheck like it happens nowdays.
Today the fans would dance along with her while she rehearses Celebration or sing with her Turn Up The Radio, but her long time collaborator Donna De Lory recalls with us that during a European show of the re-Invention Tour the fans were let in
while the star was still rehearsing in the venue: “Madonna was told to get off the stage after sound check so the crowd could start to come in. She was not ready yet so they started to let people in while we were rehearsing on stage because the seating was first come first serve. I wondered how everyone would react when they saw her there but they were fighting so hard for their place in the front that they did not see her.”
She adds: “I couldn’t believe it!!! There she was out of costume with no make up and they could not see her. She was eventually escorted off the stage easily by her body guards.”
