  1. Get over it bat-fan! Nice rules, Yokohama drools!
  2. Hey Holy Roller @Anselme_Cristian I hope you show as much concern for random children once they're actually OUT of the womb as you seem to while they're still in? Something tells me not. You types don't tend to care as much about babies born into abject poverty, or born via incest or rape or with hellish disabilities, or dying painful deaths after birth, or orphans, just as long as they're "born" right?
  3. Good, more people should be taking a leaf out of your book! I see too many gays and women online turning the other way because it's not directly affecting them...YET.
  4. So are you and your friends planning on going down to picket those Walmart prisons? Are the thousands of women who marched for.. er... women, before his presidency even started, now out there marching in their thousand for these kids in cages? Are any of these senators sitting on their hands now feeling scared for their jobs because of the intense public backlash that one would assume is happening? etc ... Or is it just business as usual? When/if Trump comes to the UK this summer, I'll be out on the street I can assure you.
  5. Yes that was posted above, hence the topic of conversation. If the UK government had any fucking balls or weren't dependent on this cunt for trade deals because of the shithole Brexit hole we're about to fall into, they would cancel his visit and ban this orange cunt from the country.
  6. This cunt sat in the same room listening to the testimonies of parents whose kids had been shot to death, then a few weeks later spoke at the National Rifle Association conference giving a full on speech about defending THEIR rights rather than the victims. He is morally bankrupt. As if he cares anything about the holocaust when his own diehard supporters have their own 'final solution' type beliefs. Again, is America just gonna sit back and in a few years say they "didn't know" what was going on? Shame, shame, shame on them!
  7. There were a few (some here) who laughed at the Nazi comparisons. But let's face it, you have people sitting on their hands doing fuck all while races of people are scapegoated, made out to be subhuman, immigrants demonised, human rights forfeited...the list goes on. Those who do nothing and refuse to see the historical parallels are complicit
  8. So what y'all doing while your country (the land of the free) rips kids from their parents and puts them in cages? Nothing? Thought so...

    Don't need to imagine, that's what we GOT for RHT

    New Album Means New Tour

    The whole point of puting on a live show used to be that you are hearing those new album songs translated for a live audience with a live band, you weren't getting just a CD of album instrumentals being played like we get now for her new stuff. I'd love to have heard a live rendition of ICONIC for example, no it wouldn't have sounded exactly like the album, and it doesn't have to - and it would have fitted in just fine with older stuff. Conversely, the 2015 version of Holiday with it's sample-led makeover is the most dated it has ever sounded. That's where a talented musical director comes into play though.... And me giving my view does not negate anyone else's obviously, it's part of the discussion.

    I cannot wrap my head around people not wanting traditional arrangements of her songs, with LIVE band realness of course (not MDNA/RH press play on the adobe file nonsense) It would be EPIC to have the band riffing away with extended dance breaks etc. But naw lets have a waltz version of Revolver instead.

    Which would make sense IF Madonna was still only playing in London (which she foolishly did for far too long resulting in the rest of the country developing no touring relationship with her, hence the troubles she's now having selling seats) In the last decade however she has played London, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Dublin. Cardiff was half empty for Sticky & Sweet, a Manchester S&S show was cancelled due to low ticket sales, planned second shows in Glasgow and Birmingham were scrapped for RHT, Edinburgh was a sound/sightline debacle and Dublin was half empty for MDNA. All outwith London which is having its own problems with her sales. If someone in Liverpool wants to see Madonna they can take the 45 minute journey to Manchester to see her as they do for most major artists, btw, So explain to me how suddenly playing second tier cities in second tier arenas will work when she's already struggling in the main touring cities where every major artist plays with no problems? UNLESS she cuts her ticket prices which she will not do, and if she does, she may as well stick to playing the main cities that have the infrastructure and the deals already in place with promoters, haulage companies, aviation routes, hotels etc Which is the same reason most artists don't tour the likes of India and South Africa, because touring entities and promoters like Live Nation, AEG don't have those lucrative deals in place to earn the $$$ they want/need to make, hence you'll see artists going to the same old places and same cities time after time.

    Because she barely sold out 2 nights in a 20k London arena (a city with a population of 8 million people) but apparently she'll be able to sell out Bournemouth Bingo Hall at £1k a ticket (what with those "overheads" and all) Okey dokey. I don't know or care about her ability to fill venues in the second/third tier cities of France or anywhere else, I'm talking about the UK, where SERIOUS work needs to be put in to fix her career, and that does not mean playing Liverpool Pride or Aberdeen Town Hall.

    A good song is a good song - man or woman. No, women don't have to reinvent the wheel, they are free to stick at what they're good at (or not good at). If Springsteen brings out a rap album next year with Migos and everyone loves it then maybe you'd have a point, but he won't because he knows his audience.

    It doesn't have to be stadiums. MDNA which was a theatrical show looked amazing indoors and like shit outdoors. A "hits" tour can be as theatrical as she wants it to be. Yeah and if audiences know they are gonna hear that 30 year back catalogue then they will flock back to her shows as they apparently do to Mylene and her (im assuming) local hits tours. Yes, Madonna can do that itinerary you state WITH THE RIGHT SHOW. I'll take a guess here that Mylene Farmer trots out the same old Desenchantee type hits every single time along with usual continental Europe ticket prices and a production that doesn't look like it was done on the cheap? Or are we gonna just pretend that the unexpected slow ticket sales for RHT, the multiple night bookings that were cancelled before even going on sale, and diminishing tour returns starting with MDNA never actually happened? Well, you need to. She played that tiny venue because the ticket prices were so extortionate that she made the same (if not bigger) profit from that show than a normal one with quadruple the attendance. Rather different from playing Blackpool Pleasure Beach for £60 a ticket like she's Camila Caberro or some shit connecting with her faaanz "reconnecting" with her audience will mean playing the hits, charging a reasonable price and puting out a solid pop album. THEN she has the leeway (and financial/commercial back up) to do her own thing for a few more years. This is all assuming she chooses to stay in the arena of commercial artist with record deal etc. and not turn into some faux-indie artiste that so many here seem to crave.

    Because if you're struggling to sell out friggin London and Glasgow, then yer 300 quid a ticket tour ain't gonna cut it in Bournemouth Bowling Club. Let's get real here please.

    Why? A 4 year gap is quite enough. Most acts are out there every 1.5 years.

    But the smaller the venue the crazier the ticket prices will be (and the harder it will be to get good tix) That's just the way she rolls. In my opinion, she has a few years left before going that niche route of theatres full of the same hardcore fans night after night. Perish the thought. ALL she has to do is swallow her pride and do a hits tour with BOMBASTIC production and that's her set for another few years of doing the kind of show she wants to do. Leave the fading Marlene tribute act tll she's 70ish.

    Who do you think she is? Kylie Minogue? On the contrary, it wouldn't surprise me if they went back to just London again. RHT tix weren't exactly flying off the shelves were they? Unless it's promoted as a HITS tour of course, then she can do the main cities. Keep the provincial town halls out of it.
  20. What's preposterous are fans of a pop star complaining when they sing their biggest hits in concert....while creaming their panties over the prospect of a bossa nova version of I'd Rather be your Lover or some shit. Only Madge fans....
  21. No, NOT enough of Like a Prayer. Only Madge fans would want her NOT to perform her signature hit and best song just because THEY are "sick" of it. And NO goddamn "WORLD MUSIC" section either. YES to getting a LIVE band together again and YES to bringing spectacle and innovation back to her live visuals. Yeah RHT was cute and all, but NEVER AGAIN (not until she's about 80 at least)
