Madonna at the Pepsi Center, 10/18/2012
Eric Gruneisen Madonna last night at the Pepsi Center. Slide show: Madonna at the Pepsi Center
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.
