Madonna offered a breathtaking concert to the Parisian public despite being an hour late…
2 hours and 20 minutes of show
Four months after contracting a bacterial infection and being put into a coma for treatment, Madonna offers a high-profile concert. She occupied the stage for 2 hours 20 minutes at the Accor Arena in Paris. Madonna delighted French fans on Sunday evening with an exceptional show for her “Celebration Tour”. Four months after contracting a bacterial infection and being put into a coma for treatment, she offers a high-profile concert.
A first postponement due to the star’s health concerns
After London, Antwerp, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Stockholm and Lisbon, the “Celebration Tour”, finally started on October 14, after a first postponement due to the star’s health concerns, stops for four dates in the French capital : yesterday Sunday, this Monday evening, Sunday 19 and next Monday 20. As often, she was late, only an hour, punctuated by applause. But apparently it was a simple technical problem. The show begins, Madonna appears, sings and even apologizes. “This time it wasn’t my fault,” she swears. For two and a half hours, she rolls out all her hits, through scenes designed to impress, retracing her forty-year career. From Vogue to Hung Up, including Into The Groove and Live To Tell, the singer paid homage to some of the most emblematic songs of her career for nearly two and a half hours in outfits, each more extravagant than the last. .
In costume of Marie-Antoinette
In line with the previous Madonna concerts in London, Copenhagen and Barcelona, she was surrounded by dancers from (La) Horde, a collective at the head of the Ballet national de Marseille, and the American drag star Bob the Drag Queen in costume of Marie-Antoinette, to finally deliver strong messages of tolerance, particularly with regard to the war between Israel and Hamas. Her delay was therefore made up thanks to a show which won over the singer’s fans. Since the start of her world tour, Madonna has experienced several problems. This summer, she suffered a serious infection. The star had to be hospitalized and postpone the dates of her concerts. At the end of October, during the concert of Madonna in Antwerp, Belgium, the artist returned to her hospitalization and said she was not yet in top form: “I was given another chance, so I’m very grateful for that. I have to tell you that I’m not feeling very well right now, but I can’t complain, because I’m alive. Thank God for my children and all your love and support.”
