Seriously Madge?

Had tickets to Madonna's 'concert' last night- Sadly, I don't have a car & driver and have to get to work in the morning. She deigned to go on at 1045pm... (ticket had an 8 o'clock start time)... At 1130p, i had to go to get one of last trains to the suburbs (yes, i live in the suburbs, i'm pathetic)

Who starts a concert at 1045pm? A show at a club, maybe, but in all my years of seeing her at MSG, never was it that late, and never has any artist come close to doing a 'mass-market' concert at such a late hour.

Its all about her, and she will never get a dime from me for concerts or albums. Fuck her.

Be kind. Don't blame this historically important figure for needing a lot of time to get herself together, just because you have issues with transportation and schedule. It's a miracle she can still go on and give all she has left. And, as you know, you can't have miracles on demand.

I do tend and try to start on time, but that's another thing altogether, isn't it?

Request a refund. You shouldn't have to look at a performer's history of concerts to find out when they usually take the stage. If the ticket says 8, then it should be around 8, give or take half and hour, more for unexpected emergencies.

I know how you feel, was at US Open and wanted to watch a match until it's finish, but had to leave to catch the last bus. It wasn't their fault, the previous matches ran long. In this case, all she had to do was put down a 10:30 start time to accomodate fans.

I've seen a few big acts skip the opening act, Prince for one.

Even with an opening act, that usually runs 30-40 minutes, then 30-40 minutes to set up for the headliner. That means a start time of about 9:30 usually. Plus many venues start charging a lot more money if you run over midnight, and I've seen plenty of acts rush to get done before that time.

It's just plain rude to start that late. The only time I've ever seen that is with complete fuck-ups, like Axl Rose.

No, not EVERY concert in history includes an opening act. Some artists have no opener, some also have no encore.

I saw her Drowned World, Re-Invention & Confessions tours but refuse to see anymore of them. I think it was during Confessions she started that late shit. I remember Re-Invention started around 8:45pm and people were getting antsy with that 45 minute wait. Can't imagine sitting for 2 1/2 hours.

I also won't see her anymore with that no air-conditioning shit she pulls now. 50,000 people in an enclosed space gets pretty fucking sweltering.

No thanks, I'll remember her being fun those previous tours. DW was fun becuse it was my first time seeing her, Re-Invention was awesome because she played a great mix of her old and new hits and Confessions was a terrific album. These last 2 tours have just seemed shitty.

I have never seen Madonna in concert and don't think I would want to now. I did see Rihanna in Birmingham, UK a couple of years ago. She was scheduled to start at 8.30 p.m. but was about an hour late taking the stage. The audience started to get pissed off. First they were chanting her name, then they started to stamp their feet and boo. She was not long taking the stage then.

Rihanna was very good but she did seem to rush through the second half of her act. In Birmingham they have a curfew and they will pull the plug at 11.00 p.m. if the concert is not finished.

Good Advice Well Heeded: Do not attend an indoor Madonna concert in the Summertime. She will cram you into your seats for four hours ("singing" for only two) and the air conditioning will NOT be turned on because Madonna needs to preserve (insert laugh here) her voice. Madonna makes you sweat for her. Thinks she's Streisand.

by Anonymousreply 5811/14/2012

many of you have never seen a recent show of hers.

so you really can't state "$300 is too much!!!" when you have nothing to base it on.

People pay that much for a Vegas boxing match for fuck's sake.

It's an amazing show. Amazing. No one does it better which is why people DO pay to see her (she'll break records again this year with touring).

Arriving late while annoying is expected for a diva/superstar like her. I can't remember a time when any huge mega-star showed up on time.

Barbra Streisand can sell $1000 tix and sit in a dress and sing her heart out and people here don't complain since her "voice is so beautiful! etc". I justify Madonna by stating that the entire show is an experience in itself.

But, she did perform SB to a record breaking crowd.

GMAYL, no matter what you think, was a talked about song, reached #10, and she was constantly in the press because of it and SB and MDNA.

W.E. came out. She went to Venice, Toronto, etc.

She won the Golden Globe for best song in a movie.

She just joined Twitter.

She gave NO press for MDNA but still managed to have a well-attended concert that made over $300 million.

What becomes a legend most?

I was at Tuesday's show. Floor seats ($385 with service charges) center halfway from the stage. The first time I saw her live was in September at Yankee Stadium from a distance so it was thrilling seeing her up close. An energetic two hour performance by an historic entertainer.

Her appeal is truly transcends generations as many nearby where in their 20s. By show time there were few empty seats visible at Madison Square Garden.

Rocco be-bopping around during "Open Your Heart" was very cute. A major highlight was when she did "Give It To Me," and PSY popped out to do "Gangnam Style" with her dancing along. Then they did a duet of "Music."

I arrived at 9:30 PM having heard of her lateness. The 10:45 start time was irritating but sacred monsters are forgiven their transgressions.

The chronic Madonna screeds here are to be expected. It's the same disaffected neurotic bitter aged queens projecting their self loathing and despair onto a giant.

No shock she had PSY come to perform with her in an attempt to stay relevant, the same way she had LMFAO and Minaj with her at the Superbowl.

It's so crazy to me Vadgestans support her tardiness. She's RUDE. Even when people are paying to see her, she doesn't deem them worthy enough to show up on time.

Back in the days when Madonna and I were young and it was cool to see bands when they were still playing night clubs (after they started playing arenas we abandoned them), yeah, the band didn't start until a couple of hours after the time on the ticket. But you had tables to sit at and waitresses to serve you drinks. And people KNEW not to show up at 8. This just sounds like bullshit.

Who are you people? The time on the ticket for most any venue in this day and age is the time doors open. Not the time the act will go on. I don't recall the last show I saw where the main act went on before 10pm. The only reason to get there at the time the ticket says is for a standing-room show. I thought everyone knew this, but I guess I was wrong.

And complaining about the time an act goes on makes you sound elderly. Stop it.

I recall being in the audience waiting for Goldfrapp to go on, and the older gentleman next to me complaining about how rude it was of her to go on late. We were only talking about a 30min difference here. He came off as just a douchey tourist rube.

Same thing happened in Dallas. People were posting on facebook about waiting three hours for Madge to come on stage and they weren't happy.

R109 How fucking old are you?

I'm thirty two. I've been to plenty of shows with acts under fifty years of age. The main acts all manage to get on the stage before ten o clock.

I guess the elderly really get rocking!!!!

I for one will be grateful when this bitch is finally OVER. She is pathetic and ridiculous. She is so desperate to be thought of as she was 20 years ago. Enough is enough.

by Anonymousreply 11211/16/2012

2 or more hours late is ridiculous since she only has a fucking DJ and not an opening act! I love how Vadgestanbots just accept her rudeness towards them. Pathetic.

The expected time for an opening act to start is 90 minutes after the doors open. That's time for an opening act and a stage change. In addition, most venues have a 11pm cut off time. Every pop tart that I've seen in the past two decades start by 9:30 b/c they generally have to end by 11pm due to venue management.

In fact, I was surprised years ago when Green Day played at MSG until almost midnight. They started on time (around 9pm) but played over 2 1/2 hours. Rarely have I watched any big 'name' go much over the usual venue stop time (around 11pm).

I've never been a fan of Madge. She started when I was a kid and I thought she had a tiny voice and was too mechanical for my taste. When I heard the not allowing air conditioning I thought that was fucked up, had no idea her old ass thought she was important enough to start at 10:30 w/o giving a couple of opening acts to keep people entertained.

Should say, 'expected time for headliner to start is 90 minutes after doors opening.'

by Anonymousreply 11511/16/2012

She isn't entertaining enough to make people happy once she deigns to come out, while at the same time she can't risk having opening acts because most would blow her off the stage.

Most performers who don't have opening acts present "An Evening with...." and do a long show, sometimes with an intermission.

But not Mrs. Thing.

her "singing" career is one of the biggest frauds perpetrated on mankind. bitch can't sing. at all. But people are so MK Mind Controlled by her music, which is all backtracked and, well, kind of evil, that they can't stop buying and listening to it. It's sad.

AMEN R117 preach it. Vadge followers are misguided souls.

Go see Bruce instead. He usually comes out 30-45 after the printed ticket time. He plays for 3 or more hours and the tickets price is no more than $125. He's on stage the entire time. There is just a band. There are no theatrics, gimmicks or wardrobe changes. Whether you like him or not, he is a performer that actually gives a shit about his fans.

I'd be curious to know if Vadge has any pre-performance rites or rituals.

by Anonymousreply 12011/17/2012

For all you queens that think Madge is a devil. Grow up. There are a lot worse things out there - like your breath.

and for douchey R105:

"For the millionth time, if you're charging the highest prices out of any touring act out there..."

Honey - the world RUNS on money, not your bitterness. If people are WILLING to spend $500 for a ticket to her the hell does it bother you? Furthermore, congratulations to an artist who can command those prices.

Now shut the hell up and go to your nose-bleed seats for the Taylor Swift concert. You might get more out of her childish songs and $20 ticket prices.

Exactly r121. I just don't understand why this bothers them SO much. It's like Madonna came over to their house and personally drowned one of their 15 cats in the bathtub. It's kind of amusing.

by Anonymousreply 12211/17/2012

oh look the butthurt Vadgestanbot queens R121 and R122 . If Vadge were talented and a good person, no one would have a problem with her. The fact is she is neither talented nor a good person. Some of us are appalled that fags and faghags continue to waste good money on this cunty fraudulent scam artist.

by Anonymousreply 12311/19/2012

So Vadge is now in good company with MC Hammer who danced with Psy at the AMA's lol. Psy just likes to give back to the old hasbeens and make them relevant for a minute, I guess. What a nice guy.

Just disgusting. Look at the video which shows her being pulled by a leash???? and the pics below it showing her camel toe. She should PAY people for making them watch that shit. damn Vadge.

Gay icon Gloria Estefan would NEVER do that to her fans.

What is the profile of the people who attend Madonna concerts?

That video is very sexual, but in a stripper or hen's night way.

by Anonymousreply 12811/24/2012

R127 because Gloria has class, something Vadge never had. Remember her first song "Burning Up"? The lyrics

"Do you wanna see me down on my knees? Or bending over backwards now would you be pleased? Unlike the others I'd do anything I'm not the same, I have no shame"

were the most truthful lyrics she ever sang about herself.

R128 fanfags of all ages and middle aged, white females.

A question for Vadge fans: if you were to only hear the audio from her tours without the visuals, would you still want to go see her live? The visuals alone bother me, as I don't need to see her doing sex acts with someone who could be her hot son.

by Anonymousreply 13011/24/2012

What happened to "female power"? I would have assumed Vadge would be the one pulling the guy by a leash, not the other way around. Hopefully she won't blow out her knee while she's down there.

Like Jimbo Morrison sang to his dick, Madonna sings to her pussy.

by Anonymousreply 13511/24/2012

I used to have Madonna dreams. Could never figure it out. I never dreamt about any other celebrities, which confirms there is some serious psychic shit behind her popularity. She comes to you in your sleep!

Madonna once said she wanted to have a career like Dietrich. That means we are facing the prospect of having her onstage for another twenty years with her wig stapled to her head.

The gall of not using a/c in enclosed venues is outrageous. Maria Callas wouldn't want her audience to suffer. And she could sing.

by Anonymousreply 13611/24/2012

the fact that you queens keep posting negative comments about a living legend is amazing.

I post to defend her since I've seen the MDNA show and what you post is either lies, or great exaggeration.

Why do you care so much? You are keeping her relevant.

And to suggest Minaj, Psy, or any other collaborator of Madonna's isn't getting the better end of the deal is crazy.

Like her or not, she has been a GLOBAL BRAND for over 20 years. Money. Influence. Fame. Adoration. Respect. And changing attitudes of the masses.

Although, I do question the SB performance's odd visuals; but her message, overall, is a very positive one.

by Anonymousreply 13711/24/2012

Madonna would be a lot more respected if she just learned how to sing. I said this before but she sounded better after taking voice lessons for Dick Tracy and Evita. She should have kept it up.

R121 = priggish twat

by Anonymousreply 13911/24/2012

R138 she's a horrible singer. She did her best in those movies but you're never gonna hear her sounding great. Why do you think you've never heard her sing the Star Spangled Banner? because she knows she can't and would make a fool of herself if she tried. That song is the litmus test for singers. You don't have to be amazing, but you have to be at least a decent singer to sing that song. Recording acts like Vadge, Janet, Paula, Shitney, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Ke$ha will never attempt that song, and for good reason.

R137 she's only a living legend to you and her other deluded stans. That doesn't mean the rest of us can't talk about how she's a fraud and a complete cunt. Also her message is to give to her favorite charity, Madonna. She doesn't give a fuck about anyone or anything else.

I'm amazed more people don't stop and try to figure out WHY they are so obsessed with Madonna. It's almost comically not normal.

I think those people are psycho spiritually unconscious.

If you don't believe in forces of good and evil, you will. Madonna is an absolute force of evil in the world. WAKE UP. You are like the dumb people in the Matrix who don't realize they're in the matrix.
