Italians do it better – it’s TRUE! I experienced it and I can guarantee you that! I attended the MDNA tour in Milan at Stadio San Siro and it was definitely one of the most amazing concerts! Everything was perfect – the weather, the stadium, the crowd (Italian fans are AMAZING) and of course the show itself – Madonna is the best, because she as THE best team!
Martin Solveig opened the show around 8pm – He has a great energy and really made the crowd enjoy the songs that he was playing, including “Beautiful Killer” and “Give me all your luvin'”. A couple of hours later, the band got on stage and received a warm welcome from the fans! A few minutes later, the lights went off and everyone was cheering and clapping!
The technology that is used in this tour is incredible – stage & lights were beyond comparison; the vocals & music sounded FANTASTIC! The band was KILLING it! axestatic highlights –
Brian Frasier-Moore‘s drumming during “Give me all your luvin'”, “Like A Prayer”, “I’m addicted” and the outro of “I Don’t Give A” (extra props to his brilliant tech, Chris Achzet!)
Monte Pittman‘s dive bombs during “Gang Bang”, awesome electronic sitar playing in “I’m a sinner”, incredible tone for “Like A Prayer”, spectacular acoustic riffs in “Open your heart” and “Masterpiece” and of course – his awesome Rock God presence on “Turn Up The Radio”.
The keys & synths: Ric’key Pageot‘s sensual piano in “Like A Virgin”, fantastic new tunes in “Hung Up” & “Papa Don’t Preach”, while Kevin Antunes rocked the key-tar for “Turn Up the Radio” and also played bass for “I’m a sinner”!
Nicki Richards & Kiley Dean sounded amazing as usual… warm and powerful vocals that fit so well together! Perfect harmony!
The dancers & the Kalakan Trio brought a whole new vibe to the show and Madonna was in a great mood and danced her butt off! The presence on stage is unbelievable… anyone who hasn’t been to a Madonna show cannot understand the power of her performance. I have no words to describe it!
I bet you’re thinking that I’m completely biased – well, I Don’t Give A ****! =)
Downsides? the show only lasted for 1h45mins and if you think about the ticket prices, you’d expect the show to last for 2 hours at least. That was a bummer :\ We needed more songs in the show!!!
“Turn Up The Radio”
“I Don’t Give A”
