I could go on about what we did that day, but who cares? Bottom line was Day 3 was the Madonna concert. The early part of the day was a blur of more, eating at Fuddruckers (yes a little slice of heaven for those of us who don't get to dine on good burgers for long lengths of time) and getting ready for the big concert.
Six o'clock pm found me grabbing all my make up, accessories and my "madonna outfit" and claiming one half of the room as my "getting ready for Madonna area". John, the most awesome husband in the world, surprised me by packing my Immaculate collection CD of Madonna hits and the DVD portable player and turned on the music while I got ready with my favorite Madonna tunes blasting in the background. He also fixed me captain and cokes and kept Bruce out of my hair so I could jam, dance and make ready for the special evening. Getting ready was so much fun with such a playful understanding hubby. Have I mentioned how much I love him lately?
It was getting close to 9pm now, (her show was due to start at that time) and I was getting antsy that we needed to be on our way. When we got outside we saw that the que for a taxi was rather long. Our guys being the problem solvers that they are decided to meet the taxi's way before they hit the que area and secured a quick ride for us to the venue. Within five minutes we were there, we had arrived!!!!!!!!
The night was so hot and yet she and her dancers came out in full costumes, did every single song with full energy and passion and gave all of their selves to the show. No one seemed to be slacking or being beat down by the heat. You saw the sweat pouring off all of them and yet they continued dancing to all their songs and moving and grooving to the beats and giving us hard core Madonna fans everything we hoped for and more in this concert. Everything.
I loved every single freaking minute of this concert and was sad when it ended. This concert did not disappoint and I hope you will enjoy my favorite pics of the night below. Madonna at 53 years old still had boys mooning over her, and still has women wanting to look like her. She made me forget that I am 45 years old and no longer the spring chicken that I was when I first fell in love with her and her music. She also made me realize once again that it doesn't matter how old you are, that you are in charge of what you look like, and how you want to present yourself to the world. Yes, we are getting old but we can go down fighting, and we can be hot and sexy and limber...no matter what age. Thank you for reminding me of that, I love you Madonna. I love that I loved you at 18 and love that all these years later I still love and sing and dance to your music. I love even more that at your age you have the grace, confidence and the children (her kids were dancers in the show too!) to help you celebrate your longevity in the music industry.
It was a wonderful concert, a wonderful weekend and I will hold it dear to my heart just as I did the blonde ambition tour all those years ago. Peace out Madonna, see you in another twenty years!
And now, what you all have been waiting for.....Madonna! Well pictures of her show anyway, not in any order and some blurry, but here are they are, enjoy! I know we did!
(And by the way, song playing in my head right now is "don't go for second best baby put yourself to the test you know you know you've got to make him express how you feel and maybe then you'll know his love is real....express yourself! )
