CRITIC'S NOTEBOOK

Personal Bias: I'd seen Madonna before in Denver on the Sticky & Sweet Tour in support of her previous album, Hard Candy. That show left me disappointed, so my expectations were lower this time around.

Random Detail:I met the self-proclaimed best friend of Madonna's daughter, Lourdes, in the men's restroom before the show. He was putting on his heels and bridal veil -- it's a Madonna show, after all -- all the while every other dude was just trying to take a whiz. Fast forward an hour, and I see him dancing around just shy of front row center.

By The Way: "Gang Bang" was co-written by William Orbit and Mika -- yep, of "Love Today" and "Grace Kelly" fame.

Agree with the issue of the 10:45 appearance sucked (especially for us working folk).  Also agree with the opening DJ was a real snooze!  Literally...I had to wake the guy sitting next to me.  The first 30-45 minutes were a bit too 'DARK' for me.  Had high expectations of a fun 'girls night out'.... This wasn't it.

I don't know what concert artist_melissa attended, but from my vantage point (upper deck, back of the arena) the sound was fantastic, and the video and lighting were stellar. I'm not a big Madonna fan, but I thought the concert was great. Sure, it was a drag waiting until 1045P, (and the opening DJ was a snooze), but it was worth the wait in my opinion. And all this talk about how disrespectful it was for Madonna to use guns in her performance, in the wake of the the theater shootings, is ridiculous. I didn't even make the connection until after reading those comments online. I guess I should also have been upset when KISS and Motley Crue used flame pods in their show in the wake of the wild fires. Anway.....great show. I stayed for the whole performance and wasn't angry.

She is a stupid bitch and who cares about what she has done.

I'm sorry I think it was rude of Madonna to come on at 10:47pm and have her fans waiting. I also thought the sound quality was horrific and that no one wants to hear her political views. I left early along with many people and will never ever spend another dime on Madonna again. People should be angry. This concert was a disgrace.

When she asked if anybody'd seen Molly, she meant her nurse.

Breaking news from 1986? Haven't cared since 1996.
