Chile: Lions shot after man jumps into enclosure, strips
May 23, 2016
(CNN)A zoo killed two lions to save a man who jumped into the big cats' enclosure in the Chilean capital.
The man climbed over the fence Saturday and removed his clothes before approaching the lions, according to a statement posted on the Santiago Metropolitan Zoo Facebook page.
He was apparently attempting suicide, and a note was found in his clothes, Chilean media reported.
Zoo staff shot and killed two of the lions with live rounds to protect the man, the zoo's statement said.
"Due to the circumstances and to firstly protect the life of this person, we found ourselves obliged to apply all of our security protocols," the zoo's statement reads.
The two lions, a male and a female, were shot in front of a large crowd of zoo visitors. The male lion was born at the zoo, while the lioness was rescued from a circus, local media reported.
The zoo said it took the "incomprehensible action" of killing two of its three lions, which was "profoundly painful for every single one of us."
The man has been described by police as "frustrated" and an investigation has been opened.
So sad and scared that these things keep happening, hoping for everyone and their loved ones, to be safe...
Is there really a way of stopping these lunatics? I mean, there's gotta be a way...so sad
The first and last tour madonna brings fans up on stage
Imagine if some of the psychos here got brought up, M would be torn in tiny pieces
Adding another leg to a tour is a highly unusual move for Madonna. "It absolutely has not happened in the four tours I've been involved with," Fogel tells Billboard.com. "There has been talk [of extending] during each one, but it has never come to be. But with this one, she loves the show, she's had a great time and she's excited about playing new markets."
The extension will take Sticky & Sweet to around 80 shows, and boost it well into the top five grossing tours of all time. Despite the more than six-month break, the tour will feature the same production and performers as 2008. "It is a long hiatus, but everybody was excited to continue," Fogel says. "So we basically worked out the arrangements for all the performers, crew and equipment and we'll be ready to go."
The Sticky & Sweet tour was the first under a 10-year multi-rights agreement between Madonna and Live Nation, valued in some reports at about $120 million.
Arthur Fogel interview:
"Sticky & Sweet is Madonnas biggest tour of her career?
The Sticky & Sweet tour is going to do $420 million (gross). We did $280 million in last years dates and now theres this two month run to end the tour.
Ok, Billboard needs to make up their mind...2012 they claimed MDNA was her fifth tour with Fogel, this year they said the same thing with RH...
Rebel Heart will be Fogel's fifth tour with Madonna, a relationship that has produced more than $1 billion in Boxscore grosses.
This will also be the third -- and, presumably, final -- tour by Madonna under a 10-year multirights deal she inked with Live Nation in 2007, valued at a reported $120 million. The future of that partnership is unclear, given that Oseary's Maverick Management (which also includes U2, which struck a similar deal with Live Nation) is now part of Artist Nation, Live Nation's artist management division. Initially, the Live Nation/Madonna deal included recorded content (along with touring, merch, fan club/Website, DVDs, some sponsorships, and certain other music-related projects), but those recording rights were sold to Interscope in 2011 for a reported $40 million in a three-album deal, of which Rebel Heart is the second.
"MDNA" is the second tour under a 10-year multi-rights deal between Madonna and Live Nation, signed in 2007. "MDNA" is Madonna's fifth tour with Fogel's team, a run that marks the Material Girl's ascent into the elite ranks of touring artists and inarguably makes her the top touring female artist of all time.
Madonna said it on Jonathan Ross this year that they've
It was planned to broadcast one of the shows on TV. However, negotiations with TV network CBS fell through when it didn't want to comply with Madonna's demand to air for more than 2 hours and commercial-free.
Not to go off-topic, but does anyone know why HBO didn't pick up RIT for live broadcast? Was the DWT broadcast a flop for them?
As for HBO, i believe it was around that time that they stopped broadcasting live shows, DWT had 5.7M viewers wich was very good, The Girlie Show attracted 5.4M, Blond Ambition 8M, Confessions 4.6M on NBC.
Thank you Acko for your review and setting the record straight. I do not understand all the comments about the crowd being angry or not into the show. Did these people really see the show because after their negativity is swallowed up by possitive comments like yours, all is good. It happens all the time.
"Thank you Antwerp, you've been a great crowd!"
There's a procedure that they inject your own fat in the butt, it's temporal i tnink, her ass looked bigger on S&S round 2 but it looked like muscle to me, like RIT, i think she started trainig her lower body a lot more since 2003, but who knows really,if she got work done, kudos to her, it looked amazing
And she took it out for rebel heart tour?
Someone that relys so much on movement/dancing would never risk that for a fake butt that she doesnt need

8 minute recap of the whole show
L4L remix is the bonus track, and the LFL, G, BIM and BIM rmx videos on the dvd.
why does EVERYONE want to get FANCY with their camera work right when shes doing her fan routine run?!!! 1:25
Here's a great video from LA where the whole fan routine is pretty well shot, you can also spot Michelle Visage wearing a Borderline hat at 13:04
It happened after the blackout during the last show of the tour, as soon as the power went out she looked a bit nervous(understandably), and he was there for her talking to her, trying to help her stay cool while dealing with a stadium filled with 50,000 ppl and no power!
I've never seen this video before thx for posting!
I'm seeing an epic level of aquardness Between the two lovebirds. This looks like it was filmed like ten minutes after they just broke up or something of that nature. Can someone please bring me up to speed. ????
They left the stage with him hugging her, they came back an hour later like what you see on that video, who knows what went on backstage...
Was listening to Graham Norton on Radio 2 today, some judge from Ru Paul was on. Never heard of her but turns out she is a massive M fan and spoke in the most amazing terms about the tour. Graham said he would be at one of the London shows.
To this day I don't understand why she did a show two days after 9/11. I still think it was inappropriate. Yes I understand don't let the terrorists win, bla bla bla. But by that Thursday, they thought that tens of thousands of people had died. She could have just skipped one show and lost the money.

The singer pledged that proceeds from her final shows would go to relief funds for victims of the attacks and their families. Saturdays show was originally scheduled to be held Tuesday but was nixed due to the attacks, as were other major entertainment events around the country
Girlie Show from Paris is good too
This morning i found a website with a few bootlegs to download, found what it seems to be a radio broadcast of the Girlie Show in Rio de Janeiro, quality is quite good but there's this annoying radio host who talks over at the beginning of almost every single song, not sure if anyone's interested in it
I think being such a high profile event, with people from all around the world attending the show by an american superstar, im sure very strict security meassures will be taken, if they feel it's too risky i'm sure they will cancel, it's still hard for me to believe that human beings can be capable of doing things like these to innocent people, with such cruelty, it's heartbreaking
Paris would be amazing, around the Girlie Show she said Bercy was her favorite venue, Italy would be great also!
Puerto Rico had a great crowd back in 93
What about the UK? The audience in the Confessions tour dvd is not that enthusiastic but i think it will be much better this time given the long history she has with the UK, and the type of show that RH is...
I remember a very loud croud at RIT Manchester
