Madonna in Detroit: Three times a Lady (Gaga)
I've gotta admit, seeing Madonna live has been a lifelong dream of mine. So, when I heard she'd be coming back to Detroit last month and, even better, was playing Joe Louis Arena versus the overall downer that is The Palace of Auburn Hills, I knew I had to find a way to get a decent seat. Turns out, my view was perfect, as was Lady Madge.
Hearing the songs of my childhood gave me chills from first notes (particularly "Vogue"), and there was definitely magic in the air of the hometown she seldom performs in these days. The production of the show was spectacular as well and proved that the 50+ legend still has what made her a star. Madonna hinted that other artists (like Lady Gaga) may try to copy her (even integrating a bit of "Born This Way" into her performance of "Express Yourself" implying that one lady's attempt at flattery through imitation is another's idea of plagiarism).
Let's just say I'm still striking a pose over a month later.
All my photos are here, and a couple videos are below. Enjoy!
