  1. I can watch Iconic over and over and over again. So amazing
  2. Looks like a great crowd in Edmonton . Are those ladies going to get their shirts replaced? LoL!!
  3. Hahaha, I think the front row is shirtless!! Feed has ended now
  4. oh no, Michelle is gone now . any other links?
  5. Have fun everyone. The Queen is coming.
  6. Forbidden love from Bedtime Stories - it's so smooth and soulful. Her vocals Great song. It's difficult to decide though. It's definitely not a matter of quality but taste, affinity or whatever mood your in.
  7. I received my key chain today. The package states that its value is $2 - not kidding. The key chain just has the words RebelHeart and is silver in colour. I have a picture of it but I not able to attach it- not sure how to do that.
  8. Yes great for them, but if that's what it takes to get up there, I would be broke.
  9. still using that JML guy ipad link
  10. I was at the first Montreal show since M. did not visit Toronto that year. The opening was the most epic opening ever! The way the disco ball opened up was amazing. I was sitting right next to the left side ramp. Lots of action went on there . Like a Virgin was fantastic. She came up with her cape on that side too. I enjoyed the choreography. My eyes were kind of glued to Sofia. I loved what she did on the cage - like she was spider woman. And then those guys scaling the arena. The whole show was fabulous - can't beat disco and rock Madonna. Only complaint that night was there seemed to be distortion of reverb or something going on with the acoustics at the Bell Centre. I don't think they got it perfect that night.
  11. Incredible pics!!! Thank you She's so beautiful. My sister's objective opinion is that M's face/body looks more mature - fuller I guess - but in a great way. I think she means that M's face, body and energy are perfectly in tuned with each other right now - perfection .
  12. That Marcelo guy must have felt like the luckiest guy there . "You are a Marcelo" hahaha. He was the running joke. Yes, we need a dvd of each show. I don't even remember all the humour - too much. I love M.
  13. Hi, at the Toronto shows, I bought the black zipper Hoodie which was $80cdn. It's of very nice quality. I like the M. embroidered on the sleeves. I don't like buying the regular t-shirts because they swallow me - even the small size. The women's t-shirts actually fit. So, I bought the Like a Prayer shirt ($45) - really nice subtle looking shirt. My sister bought the red V-neck shirt with Madonna and the bunny ears($45) - nice quality as well. I bought my niece the tour cap($40). The cap is really nice guys. She loves it, she was wearing it the next day . I have the key chains that are being shipped from the Icon pre-sale. I end up buying all this stuff over the years and its all sitting in bins in my storage. So, now I'm just buying stuff that I would actually use. But, I still might buy a couple more items online . From what I observed, she is making a killing again on merchandise. So, if someone got a discount ticket for say $40, hopefully, they might be spending the same amount or more on the merchandise . It seems that all the prices for the items were calculated with the U.S. exchange rate in mind - no discounts.
  14. OMG, Can I love this woman even more? Last night was incredible!! The lower bowl was more packed than it was on Monday. It was the upper deck that was not full to capacity. I would say the show was 90-95% full. Everyone, was up on their feet in the lower section, much different from the previous night. I had a great seat. I was in sec. 102 row 5 which was actually row 1 of the lower section!! Because I'm only 5'4", I don't do the floor sections unless I'm really close. So, my seat was an unobstructed view of the show - I could see over everyone's heads. I was almost toward the centre, beside the mixer, and could see the show, I guess, as it was meant to be seen:). Posters above are right when saying the lighting is brilliant. The show isn't as elaborate at previous shows but they use the technology they have to great effect. The part of the stage that tilts and lifts up in the air is amazing. It's almost like there's still a lot going on but you don't realize it. As for the show, M. was feeling it last night. She could feel the crowd this time around. I think the show went on for 2hrs 15-20 mins. My goodness, she was in a very relaxed, chatty mood. She was really adorable last night. Between, Marcelo, Dan the Libra, on being late, thoughts on men, getting married in Vegas, not stop humour. She was so cute, contemplating if she should do Ghosttown or not. I'm so there, if she decides to do the guitar with a bottle of wine thing lol!! Highlights of the night: once again Iconic, Like a Virgin, Rebel Heart, Who's That Girl. I loved UB because it was like she was rolling with it. Her dress got caught in her shoe, while the backing track was still going - oops. Then the UB Libra guy lol!!! This show is one that gets better with every view. I think because this show is centred on Madonna. My sister was at the show in a different seat. She's not a loon like me, but she said she loved the fact it was not so much about the stage and effects but it was about Madonna. M. was the star of the show and every show is different because of this. I so hope she books more shows, and does maybe NY again. I would definitely try to be there.... I hope everyone here gets to see her as many times as they can, because M. is worth it!! Thank goodness I have the week off. I"m exhausted. So much fun the last two nights!! Long live the QUEEN!!
  15. Ah, so it was Take a Bow. Thanks. BTW, the best Toronto crowds for a Madonna concert in this century were the second and third nights of the Reinvention tour(kind of insane there). After that, it has been just ok.
  16. I took my 11 year old niece with me and she thought the show was "Awesome". She enjoyed all the new songs performed from Rebel Heart even though she was not exposed to them, with the exception of BIM. She loved UB, Illuminati, BIM, Iconic, and RH. Madonna could definitely have a new generation of fans if they would actually play her music on the radio etc... Btw, my niece thinks Taylor Swift is "very annoying". lol.
  17. Last night's show was AWESOME!! Yes the audience was kind of dead, but not unusual for Toronto from my experience. I was the only person in my row that was standing/dancing. As well, I think a few people were grumpy about the late start. As for the ACC, it was basically full from where I was sitting in the upper bowl. Madonna was very funny last night - very chatty. The show lasted around the same amount of time even though she didn't perform Ghosttown. I thought she was going to perform Ghosttown when, I think, someone in the audience suggested a song to her, but then she said something like the song was slow and she had to keep the show moving. I don't think M. was feeling the crowd. Highlights for me were: Iconic (one of her best openings!), burning up(I love my rock'n roll Madonna), Body shop and all the songs where I could hear that beautiful voice. Her voice was magnificent. The show was very ethereal in many ways, just so much fun. The entire show did not miss a beat. It went by so quickly - I guess a sign of how great the show was. Going back tonight. Enjoy everyone
  18. Hello everyone. I will be there both nights!! Taking my 11 year old niece with me tonight (sec 323). Second night I'm in 102, row 5. I paid full price for my tickets. I'm one of those long time fans from the early eighties. I first saw Madonna live at the Exhibition Stadium back in 1987. I still have my Who's That Girl T-shirt from that show lol!! I've seen everything since then. This looks like another great show. Hope everyone has a great time. I'm sure my voice will be gone by the end of the show.
  19. What an amazing show last night in TO. I have seen her every time here since the 'Who's that Girl' show, and I have to say she has never been so "on" here. She was uber confident last night and very relaxed. Chatted with the crowd like never before. The show was amazing from begin to end, and her voice was wonderful last night... Can't wait for tonight!! Enjoy the show everyone!! By the way, Rocco is so cute lol.
