The ‘Who’s That Girl World Tour’ in 1987 was the last time the Material Girl toured in Minnesota, that is until this weekend when Madonna brought her ‘MDNA’ tour to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. The always provocative pop icon did not disappoint the 13,000 fans that showed up for the nearly two hour concert both Saturday and Sunday.
The ‘MDNA’ tour is full of violet imagery, religious overtones and political statements, would you expect anything different? At one point during the show Madonna made mention of both the Presidential election by saying, “I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama,” she also mentioned the Minnesota marriage amendment by encouraging the crowd to vote no, which got a thunderous applause from the very gay friendly audience, many of which were wearing “Vote No” shirts or stickers.
Madonna has very disciplined and talented dancers, some of the best in the world, the show was incredibly choreographed, visually stunning and full of high energy, there was never a dull moment.
Love her or hate her, you can’t dispute that she is both a pop music icon and an American entertainment icon that has managed to create and grow her brand and career over multiple decades in a business that eats up and spits out talent weekly, so cheers to you Madge.
