THERE WAS A REASON WHY I STOPPED BEING A FAN OF MADONNA A LONG TIME AGO

A lot of reviewers had already said it for me so I will keep it short. I have been to a lot of concerts in the past and never ever did I want to get up and leave, as I did during Madonna's 12/8/19 spectacle. I saw Madonna a long time ago and expected this one to be the same. What a huge disappointment.

MADONNA AT BARCLAYS

I love and respect Madonna. This show was not worth the price and effort at all. First of all, she's not at the top of her game....which is understandable, but when you're so used to her being the Queen, well, it's just not as fun. I could easily have overlooked that but for the awful sound at Barclays. I knew every song and there were multiple time during the show that I couldn't even make out what song she was singing. I went to hear her and could not.

SPECTACULAR & DYNAMIC PRODUCTION - WHICH STARTED SPECTACULARLY LATE (2HRS LATE!!)

A friend of mine - who is a die-hard Madonna fan - spent a small fortune on tickets to this show. We arrived at 8pm, with plenty of time to get seated for an advertised 8:30pm start - and had to wait for more than 2 hrs for the "show" to begin! Which was pathetic, to say the least. Luckily we had not planned on taking the T for transportation home after the show - by the time the show ended, the T had already shut down (so all of the hundreds of folks reliant on the T to get home were scr*wed!). Also not enchanted with the people who insisted on standing up in front of us for more than half the show to take photo's video's - so much for getting "good seats close to the stage to see better". It's a pity that these logistical issues took so much away from what was a very dynamic stage production. I won't be going to another Madonna show any time soon, if ever, for the above reasons.

PAST PRIME

Disappointing on so many levels. Disrespectful, slow and dependant on her dancers, stage show and ‘younger (actor) self’ to pick up the pace. Never thought I would sum up a Madonna concert as boring. I get it, she’s older and maybe I’m comparing to her vibrant, cutting edge ‘80s self. But there comes a time to do a 'Gretzgy’ and retire around your prime, rather than let arrogance be your brand.

NOT SURE WHAT THAT WAS?

The show was hot, but in the wrong way! I dressed for a show at a hockey arena on a cold night, and it was a bad decision. Show was supposed to start at 8:30 - started at 10:10 which I expected based on other cities. What I didn’t expect was not to be able to tell what song she was singing because of the overpowering bass. Not sure if it was the location of our seats, the sound system, bad mixing, or some other reason but it felt like being at Burning Man and camping beside I❤️Radio! Because of the late start, fans had lots of time to hit the bars, and later in the evening a woman puked on the people in front of her. Maybe a result of the heat & the alcohol? The production itself was amazing, but I came for the music. It was telling that few people - except those on the floor - were standing during the show. People booed a couple of times, some left early, a woman afterwards said it was the worst concert she had ever attended. Bottom line: this was performance art, not a concert.

WHERE WAS HER MUSIC WE LOVE AND KNOW? .

The second time I’ve seen her. Not impressed at all. Was hoping for her wonderful older songs. Same political stuff and songs that we did not know. I was hoping for an 80’s remake but sooo disappointed. Won’t do it again. Thousands spent and left bummed. .

I AM CALLING THIS MADONNA’S NARCISSIST TOUR

I went to “celebrate” 40 years of Madonna’s AMAZING music, thinking to myself “ DANCE PARY”!!! (I bought tickets the night of the show.) After listening to her lame DJ for 2 hours, Madonna finally enters the stage….never singing 2 songs in a row. Her Broadway type of performance was not what I expected, and the awful acoustics and blaring base at State Farm Arena made it difficult to understand her dialogue. Rumor has it that she was struggling with her voice, as well. I was disappointed and wished I had saved my $75 for the ticket, $49 in service charges and the $48 that I spent on 2 cocktails.
