The full name of Madonna is Madonna Louise Ciccone, and she was born on August 16, 1958 in Bay City, Michigan.
She decided to move to New York when she was 19 and her life has changed at once and forever. She is a dancer, a songwriter, a singer, a businesswoman and an actress.
The intro featured the 2-story video screens showing off a colorful twisted Charlie and The Chocolate Factory-ish landscape.
Once the screens started to break apart, move around and start to spell C-A-N-D-Y, she appeared on her throne. I guess she deserves it since she has lasted for 25 years.
She sang songs mostly form Hard Candy but threw in a few gems from her catalogue of hits.
Crowd pleasers were a techno remix of "Like A Prayer", a rocked-out version of "Borderline" and a fan favorite, "La Isla Bonita." The highlight of the night for us had to be during the closing number, "Give To Me".
The energy of the 50,000 attendees in the stadium was intense!
Once the show started, it was quite the visual spectacle.
And finally rave: a futuristic dance floor with eastern influence.
Madonna is one of the most successful entertainers of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Madonna's energy inspires many people, and her ability to connect with her fans has had a big effect on the fame she has received.
She and Pharrell brought the microphone down to our area to sing-a-long.
Our friends Amy and Carey who were seated elsewhere in the stadium freaked out because, Kevin and I were on the giant video screens on either side of the stage!
The show was divided into 4 sections: First was Pimp, a fusion of modern urban life and 1920's deco.
