Fabulous and amazing


I am 48 years old. Madonna is 47. I never paid much attention to her through out the ‘80’s and ‘90’s. I was too busy with my career, being married to woman, raising kids and keeping up our house. It wasn’t until in the early 2000’s that I even bought a CD of hers. A good friend suggested we get tickets. I have not been to a large concert in probably ten years. I thought it would be fun.

Oh my god, Madonna was amazing. And what a fabulous show! We had tickets last night at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. They were the cheap seats ($95.00!?!) up in the far corner of the multi-purpose sports arena. The sound SUCKS up there. You could not understand the vocals and the whole middle range was absent. All you can hear is the thump of the base and a few high notes. Fortunately, her live shows are not about the music. Visually it was a feast. It had gorgeous lighting, special effects staging, video production, and choreography. Even if you don’t consider all the wonderful modern technology, her utilization of entrances, exits, ramps, traps and turntables was marvelous.

Madonna’s dancers are incredible. Our favorite is the guy on the right of her in the picture. For many of the numbers he wears gray pants with a big arrow stenciled on his bottom. When he is done dancing with the tour, we would consider hiring him as an adult Au Pair.
