Would You Walk Out on Madonna?
Could Madonna be losing her fan-base?
If the reaction to her current tour is any indication the answer is a resounding “Yes.”
The Material Girl’s recent MDNA tour stop in England – her first tour stop in four years for the U.K. – not only failed to sell out, but tickets were reportedly available on eBay for as little as $15.
However, the biggest backlash from her British fans came after the London show began. Madonna’s Hyde Park performance failed to impress to such a degree that some fans left the show before the finale, calling it “the worst show ever.”
According to the London Evening Standard:
Rick Salthouse, 46, a gym owner from Manchester, said: "It was the worst gig I have ever been to. I've been a big Madonna fan all my life but I will never buy one of her records again."
Alex Tobin, 35, a bank worker from Beckenham, said: "It was a huge disappointment. I didn't recognise 95 per cent of the songs. Most people were bored." His wife Sinead, 35, a doctor, said: "It was OK to begin with but the rain didn't help. It changed the mood of the crowd."
But Adam Cook, 28, from Milton Keynes, said: "She was brilliant but for the casual fan there was not a lot. We went to see her show in Berlin and they went mental, it was the same show." TV presenter Toby Anstis wrote on Twitter: "I can definitely say, that was THE best live show i have ever seen!
Maybe Madonna needs a wakeup call from Tyra Banks like the one in the video below.
