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.
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.

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.
Oh I know which dancer you mean. He’s fabulous!Is this him?https://instagram.com/chazbuzan?igshid=x1f8g6a2ri26
Does anyone know where the money from selling the Polaroids goes?

Flew home last night from Philly after seeing it Tuesday and Wednesday night. This is the most (four times) I’ve attended one tour. The previous was twice (Rebel Heart Tour). Finances won’t allow a fifth trip to see her either in Miami or overseas. I know I have a lot to be grateful for especially getting to talk with her on October 3 and getting a hug, but feeling a little bummed my time with this tour is over. I made friends with fellow fans that have attended every or almost every show on the tour so far and are seeing all or most of the remaining dates.Mini-review of both dates: she came on about 10:40 both nights (listed start time was 10:30). Possibly because she was in Philadelphia, she was more political. At BAM, she largely avoided talk of Trump. In Philly, she made calls to impeach him. The audience ate it up. It was easy to see who the conservatives/Trump-supporters were in the audience during those moments. At Tuesday’s show, there was a couple in front of me. Attractive female and her middle-aged conservative-looking (presumably) husband. She was having a great time, but he didn’t appear to be, especially during M’s call for abortion rights and to impeach Trump.Choreography may have been slightly edited to avoid further injury. She has cut Sodade from the Fado Club section. Seemed to allow her to be more chatty with the audience.Tuesday night I was third row, dead center orchestra. Wednesday night I was 4th row, center orchestra on the left aisle where she comes down with her dancers during Medellin. No physical contact with her. It goes quick with her in the middle between her dancers and security. When the Batuka ladies enter the theater from the back and down the aisles, I got one or two high-fives. Same for when they exit at the end of the night during I Rise.On Monday night, four of my newfound friends and I attended a small, intimate concert by Miroca Paris (member of her band from Portugal) who was accompanied by two other members of the band (Jessica Pina - trumpet, Carlos - Percussion). Other members of the tour (Batuka ladies, musicians) were also in attendance. It was a humble setting with folding chairs that hurt my bony butt. Only about 20 chairs. Couldn’t have accommodated much more. And it was a magical and transformative night. Afterwards, we got to interact with and talk to Miroca, Jessica, and Carlos as well as other members of the tour in the audience.I also got to explore Philly a bit during the day (Rocky Steps and statue, Washington monument, waterfront next to hotel, Liberty Bell). Had my first legitimate Philly Cheesesteak (twice!) and discovered I like it better with Cheese Whiz! I do a lot of work in Pennsylvania, sometimes near Philly, but I’m always working during the day so I never really got to do any other touristy things until this trip so that was nice.Also, they had a few Philly-specific souvenirs at the show, including the tee with the deluxe album cover (short dark wig, guitar) with Philadelphia at the bottom, another tee from the tour had Philly info on the back and they had a bandanna/scarf that was specific to this stop. My favorite though was the black hoodie with gold lettering/insignia that was Philadelphia specific. I got that plus the deluxe album tee and the bandanna as well as the guitar picks. I also bought another eye patch to wear as an arm band as they weren’t selling the armbands and my other eye patch that I bought at BAM broke when I tried to wear it as an armband. Oh and I bought another tee that I didn’t already buy at BAM. Still less than I bought at BAM, but it adds up!
