I have to eat my words.  I really like the new cd.  Upon, first listen, I thought it was okay.  The second listen...it got better.  My third listen...even better.  Soon, I will end up saying...I love it.

I love. It definitely features some of the weirder more experimental stuff she’s ever done, which is a strength in my opinion. Her best album since Confessions on a Dance Floor.

Jumping in here late. I was down in Vegas to see Celine Dion the weekend of May 17-20 ( a long weekend in Canada) & had such a good time that while I was there I booked airfare to go down again on our long-weekend in November. I looked at the price of Gaga tickets in November & balked. I got a ticket for Donny & Marie as it will be one of their final weekends. I hadn't been paying close attention to Madaonna's dates as I had resigned myself that I wouldn't be seeing any Madame X shows. Then that  Monday morning I got the email listing the Vegas dates & realized it was for the weekend in November I had just booked airfare for. I went through all the same drama I read about on this thread putting in a request for tickets. But then when tickets were being confirmed I got an email saying my request had not been accepted. The weird thing was, the email said my request for tickets to Philidephia was not accepted. I was confused, I found the number for whatever ticket agency & called & was like "I didn't request tickets for Philidephia." They were like, somebody just sent out the wrong template, it means Las Vegas even if it days Philidelphia. What a shoddy operation. Anyways, when the public Ticketmaster sale went on I was able to get a seat. I'm sitting a few rows back from where I sat for Celine, but for about $100 more than Celine. With the current exchange rate it will hurt when I get my credit card statement. I'm going to the Sunday Vegas show. For Saturday I have already got a ticket for the new Spiegelworld show "Atomic Saloon" & might also see the new Cirque show R.U.N.- but since that only opens in October there are zero discounts, & they have it listed as being only 75 minutes long. So I might pass on that & see something else.

Ah, here it is. I thought thread had been deleted.

FYI:

“As a result of the highly specialized production elements being delayed, Live Nation has confirmed that the first 3 concerts of Madonna’s Madame X Tour – a series of rare and intimate performances – have been delayed and that the tour will now start on Tuesday, September 17th at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House. The shows previously scheduled for September 12th and 14th at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House have been rescheduled to October 10th and 12th respectively. Tickets for the September 12th performance will be honored at the October 10th event. Tickets for the previously scheduled September 14th concert will be honored at the October 12th show. Refunds for either date if required will available via the original ticket purchase link accessed either via desktop or mobile. Unfortunately, due to scheduling limitations and venue availability, the show previously scheduled for September 15th is cancelled and refunds will be automatically issued to fans with tickets to this show.”

I hope no one is adversely affected who already had tickets for the first three dates

I wonder if this is due to low ticket sales. I am shocked at how many seats are available.

The box office representative insisted to me that the show was sold out for the run.  I told him no, there were plenty of empty seats.  He also insisted the show will begin promptly at 8:30.  I wanted to try after Moulin Rouge on a Sunday night, but didn't want to take the risk that he was right.

I don’t believe it was due to low sales. Those first few dates were close to sold out. Of course, all dates will have resale tix available usually at a hefty profit. I believe that some of the high tech stuff (as stated in the press release) was delayed causing a delay in opening. It wouldn’t make sense otherwise to move 2 of the early shows to very late in the run and cancel another.

I’m just glad my dates are not affected. Initially I thought it was the first three October dates that were affected and I was freaking out! Lol

This will be interesting to see.  She is so notorious for starting late.  All the Vancouver yoga moms at her shows on the MDMA tour were absolutely livid when she didn't go on until almost midnight and that they had been waiting 4 hours. The whole stadium was women pulling their tickets out & going "Look it says 8pm RIGHT here!"  When she came back for the Rebel Heart tour she could only sell one night instead of 2 here, & even that didn't sell out.  Vancouver b!tch3s have long memories & forgive nothing.

FYI - I think is the overall a good thing, but would’ve liked a few pics/videos from front row although I can certainly see how distracting that would be in such an intimate space.

Tonight is the first night.  Has anyone read anything about the show.  What time she went on?  Is it over as of this writing?  A question for you cellphone and gadget brainiacs.  I doubt if I will see the Brooklyn  show due to timing.  There is a possibility, maybe Miami.  How do I get around the mobile ticket?  I don't have a smart phone and really don't deal too much with a cell phone.  So I am cell phone illiterate for apps and whatnot. Are there exceptions for people like me or am I SOL?

A friend sent me something that says doors open at 7:30 and she comes on at 9:30. But we all know it could be later. Also, reports from dress rehearsal is show runs at least 2 hours. So it’s probably not out yet.

Rumor yesterday was that she cut “Rescue Me” in favor of a comedy routine. I hope that’s not true.

As far as non-mobile passes, I’d call Ticketmaster and ask. Even our mobile passes are dynamic with constantly changing barcodes to help prevent theft and/or fraudulent entry,. My only suggestion is if you had a trusted friend log into your Ticketmaster account via the app on his or her smart phone and let you borrow it for the night of the concert.

The setlist from last nights show is on setlist.com.  It is mostly the new songs, with a few classics thrown in.  Rescue Me is listed as a video interlude.  There is one improv song, so that may be the comedy routine.  She does 2 covers that I was unaware of who the artist was.  Still looking for comments and reviews. I did find a guy on Madonna's website stating it was 10:30 and concert hasn't started yet.

Show was finally able to begin at 10:50. Ended at 1:00. I’ve seen the setlist. Beyond excited. My friend who is a super fan like me, loved it!

Update: the extra delays were reportedly due to long queues into the theatre. I wonder if it was due to mobile-only passes or the process of locking up your phone (looks like once your mobile pass was scanned, staff wrote down your seat number on piece of paper in case you forgot).

Now if that start time is the norm and I can buy a ticket at the box office (which is the only unknown) I should be able to make it after Moulin Rouge gets out at 9:30.  I am waiting on a callback from Ticketmaster to ask about mobile tickets.  There are orchestra tickets in Miami for $136.  But I then have to drive 6 hours each way and get a hotel room.  I laugh now at the BAM employee who told me the show will start promptly at 8:30 and it is completely sold out.  That is why I may take the risk of taking the subway there.  He had told me they don't sell tickets to any show the night of the performance.

Wow at them writing the seat location down. That's absolutely absurd in this day and age. Barclays center and other arenas have a machine that prints out a little piece of paper when you scan in your mobile tickets and it happens basically immediately.

If they want to do this nonsense with these pouches they should at the very least equip the staff with the ability to get people inside quicker.

I’ll be so happy to be there, they could chop my arm off at the moment they scan my phone and I’d say, “Thank You So Much!” Lol. The piece of paper is not pre-printed. It looked like there is a place to write down the section, aisle and row and then they hand wrote those in. My friend who was there last night confirmed it is hand-written. It’s a small theater in Brooklyn. Maybe that’s why.

At the hockey arena here that seats 14,000, when they do a concert - like Jack White - using Yondr pouches, they just had people at the door writing ticket info on paper off of your phone as well.
