There is now a class action suit filed from fans who  couldn't attend, after purchasing tickets, due to her later start.   Ticketmaster wouldn't refund their money.I doubt they will get anything and she probably doesn't care.

On tonight at 10:35, was in a great mood, got out by 1:05.
Show did not disappoint.
For about 1st hour ushers still seating latecomers.

All around me groups of bears. 2 in front of me insisted on standing, which caused fight with 2 beside me. 1 in front "I paid for this seat & I'll do whatever I want in it!"
They were only 2 standing in the whole section, I had to stand to see. Felt bad for lady behind me, noticed she had an empty seat beside her so I moved back a row. 2 standing left about 12am.
Turned out lady I sat beside was mother of one of dancers and was very appreciative of my moving.
I don't believe in "karma" but still that's karma bitches

I went to bed just after 2 but didn't sleep well, & woke up about 5, & have spent the last hour looking at crap online. My plan today is to spend about 4 or 5 hours at the pool before I fly home tonight.
The thing that I keep thinking about is how well put together Madonna's show was - how good the dancers were, how much the video elements added to the performance and comparing it with the terrible new Cirque du Soleil show I saw Saturday night. Yesterday afternoon when I came back to my room from the pool, housekeeping had left this weeks new edition of "Las Vegas" magazine, which is mainly all advertorial, and Cirque or MGM resorts must have paid plenty for both the front & back cover as well as a 6 pages inside touting R.U.N. Then when you go to the show, the money they must have spent renovating at Luxor - the decor & neon lighting & the staging look like 100's of thousands of dollars, if not in the millions. Yet the actual show, and choreography is so very, very bad.

I attended Saturday night's Vegas show. She went on about 11:15 and we were out by 1:30 so I'm wondering if someone talked to her after the mess Thursday's show caused. I thought the show was great and Frozen was the highlight for me. The Madame X songs worked really well within the concept of the show. The Polaroid went for $3,000.

I could tell there were a lot of casual fans in my section who were getting upset that she was playing so little of her back catalog. About a third of my row was gone by the last half hour of the show and about the same with the row in front of me. 

My one complaint was how hot it was in the venue due to Madonna's request of no AC. I had to step out for a moment during the Portugal segment just because it was so hot. I'm sure that led to a lot of the people leaving early as well. 

I caught Gaga's Enigma residency Friday night and that was a great show too.

If people took the time and did a little research they would know what the setlist is going to be in advance.  In Madonna's case, she has been doing the Madam X tour for a while.  It is no secret that the setlist consisted mostly of songs from the new cd.  Although I would have liked to hear hits, I loved the Madam X cd so hearing those for the first time would not have bothered me.  I am going to see Sara Bareilles next week.  By checking her setlist I already know she is doing 8 songs from her new cd.  I bought it and glad I did .  One of my favorite this year.  I am seeing Celine Dion in January.  Even though she has a new cd coming out, her setlist is for the most part, hits.  She is only doing 2 songs from the new cd.  Do some research and you won't be disappointed.

Most peopele don't do any research.  If you bought your tickets from Ticketmaster,  & not resale,  you even got sent a hardcopy of the Madame X cd.   You can lead a horse to water , but you can't make it drink.

No one where I was seemed upset about not being greatest hits.  Of course the dancer's mother was pointing out her son every time he did something. Some people were like yeah whatever, but all the drunk bears were living for her. (Chaz?  During Crave he had the big black feather boa. ) Also as we exited she was telling everyone how I had moved to let her see her baby better.

The lack of A/C was annoying, and when it turned on as the theatre exited it was a relief.

I thought is was a great show & while I knew some of what was going to take place, there was still plenty that hadn't been spoiled by online reviews.

Does anyone know where the money from selling the Polaroids goes?
