  1. I wouldn't mind a residency - can you imagine how amazing a show like that would be from Madonna?! If she does the Vegas/Greatest Hits type show - she could having the biggest, best show to ever hit the Vegas strip. We'd all be screaming at the numbers, hype, promo, and the fact that her face would be plastered everywhere! I'm ok with this - she's done 10 world tours and if she wants to try something new I think it would be a brilliant show. Of course, she'd have to play by the rules by singing songs everyone knows, and starting on time. The show also couldn't be called "Madonna: The Candy Shop Experience" either! LOL. I think technologically speaking, they could even try some new effects since the show wouldn't be moving around. I'd pay good money to fly to Vegas to see this type of show from her. I've been seeing her live since RIT and i'm ready for something new and that I haven't seen before. While Madonna is always above the rest in my book, the pop show format hasn't changed much in the last 20 years. Now, are we talking a TOAC type residency? I'm ok with that also - I mean, I love Madonna's big spectacle shows, but a night in a theatre with something scaled down would be interesting and intimate. I'm not sure i'd fly somewhere to see it but if it was in NYC and I could get a ticket at a reasonable price (about $500.00) i'd go. Perhaps she could do that prior to going on a major world tour again (maybe even a GH tour). The possibilities are endless and i'm looking forward to what she has in mind.
  2. This is one of the great things about Madonna. She isn't just dance music - she has evolved so much from the beginning of her career and what's so great is that even now, she can come right back to her roots and still put out a great dance track. I always say there's a Madonna album for every mood - If I don't feel like something upbeat and care-free, I turn to a different album - but I don't have to turn to a different artist (if I don't want to) to get what i'm looking for at the moment - Madonna has something for every emotion. I've actually listened to all of her albums in full, in a row, and it's just such great mix.
  3. Taylor Swift thread 🐍

    Same here and the reason is because it's all forgettable. It's the flavor of the moment but none of these acts are really making an impact with songs that reach multiple demographics. By that I mean, older people don't have to like/listen to these songs, but you can't possibly NOT know some of them unless you live under a rock. If a song makes an impact, we all know it. You've at least heard a memorable chorus, a controversial lyric, something....it's just so boring anymore. For example, I know One Direction was huge, but I couldn't tell you one song they sang - when *Nsync and Backstreet Boys were huge - who didn't know "I want it that way" or even "Bye, Bye, Bye"? - you might not have known who it was from, but you knew the song.
  4. Express Yourself

    I think it gets overlooked in terms of set-lists, for sure. The RIT version was ok but the visuals were not, how do I put this, as fun as in the past? I loved the MDNA version but i'd really like to see it again on the next tour. Probably in my top 5 Madonna songs of all time.
  5. Come On In To My Store

    The MDNA version is my favorite!
  6. Come On In To My Store

    Don't give her any ideas!!!!!!!! LOL - you know it's coming.
  7. When you think about it, many artists who've been around for a long time do the same thing. They repeat what made them so well received - over and over again. Sure, they release new music but how much of it do they showcase on tour? If it's a hit, they might do a lot of it but usually they always come back to their hits - the same ones over and over again. Artists with well known choreography do the same thing. I think Madonna is in the minority when it comes to repeating her glory days over and over again. Sure, we get hit songs on her tours but she mixes it up and we never know what she's going to do each time she announces a tour. This is a major source of excitement for a lot of us. We get a new vision each and every time. Sure, we might get a nod to the past (cone bra - MDNA, Wedding veil (RH), but a full on repeat of her most successful moments and looks? LOL not going to happen (at least not yet). Most legacy acts are perfectly content reliving the past. Look at all the older rock bands that still tour - I bet they play a LOT of their older hits every single time. If you see them once that's great - try going 10 times and always knowing what they'll play - or close to it. Don't get me wrong, Madonna could play the Immaculate Collection and dance around in her cone bra every year and the public would probably be eating up the nostalgia and praising her but luckily she chooses to not cater to the masses as much. I love to look at how different each and every tour is - it's amazing actually. Madonna, in my opinion, is unique in this respect and it does make us judge the other pop stars more. As far as Janet's show goes, I do wish her the best with it. I am going - I didn't pay much but got a couple of decent seats for the price. I know she'll give a good nostalgic performance with a night full of hit songs - I just would really like to see a more elaborate show from her as i've only seen UCAP from her so far. Nicer costumes and sets would be exciting this time around - I mean, it is an arena show and the Unbreakable show from what it looked like - looked cheap.
  8. Katy Perry thread

    I agree with this. After a certain point, most pop stars begin to fade. Also, if i'm not mistaken, Perry had a lot of kids as fans - perhaps they've also outgrown her? or are just simply over her? She's not transitioning well at all and that is a major thing to overcome. I don't find anything she's doing to be any different than any other pop star right now - it's just all the same. What we need is for someone to REALLY take a chance and do something interesting. I don't think Perry is the one that could ever do that though.
  9. I'll see her but I need to wait and see if she will revamp the whole show - from what I saw, the last tour looked really cheap - worse than the Up Close and Personal Tour - at least that one made sense - smaller venues - more intimate shows - what she was doing for an arena show looked really bad and those costumes were hideous.
  10. Pop music is in a horrible state right now and has been for a few years. Female or not. I mean, that list is horrendous! I don't even know half of those songs - no impact at all. I realize i'm just one person but does anyone think any of those tracks listed are iconic or legendary? It's laughable, really. They aren't even memorable let alone great pieces of work.
  11. BA Tour featured on Rolling Stone's 50 Greatest Concerts

    I'd pick DWAD .... for a teen pop star/show, it was a big spectacle and Britney was in her prime in 2001/2002 as a dancer/performer. The massive waterfall at the end was pretty cool live as well. Onyx was still great but wasn't as over the top with the stage design/effects.
  12. BA Tour featured on Rolling Stone's 50 Greatest Concerts

    Couldn't have said it better. It feels so forced to see her name on these types of lists. and Taylor Swift too? Give me a break. I'm glad Madonna is on the list, but there are some real questionable choices there.
  13. Favourite Madonna Stage

    MDNA - no contest. One of the most unique stage designs i've ever seen on a tour (Madonna or otherwise). The moving cubes, as mentioned above were pretty amazing - especially the way they were used in the choreography and set design.
  14. rate the tours

    This is always so hard but: MDNA BAT GS CT RIT RHT VT DW WTG S&S
