Close to 40,000 fans saw the opening night of the MDNA Tour tonight in Tel Aviv. Although the setlist is a bit lacking compared to past tours, judging by the pro-shot videos, it's just Madonna at her best. Oh, and what an entrance she makes, compared to Sticky & Sweet. In terms of production, this tour wins against Lady GaGa's Born This Way Ball (that cheap castle set is terrible...)

Why are you comparing an actual stage with a performer on it with a stage we've only seen a sketch of? For pete's sake, not everything has to be this fucking stupid competition.

So annoying. (and yes, Madonna, I'm including you in that. I'm still peeved about the "she's not me!" nonsense.)

I don't really understand the She's Not Me crap. Probably putting those rumors to rest about how Born This Way sounds, or does not sound like Express Yourself. But then it sparks another debate between Madonna and GaGa fans. Marketing move?

I don't hate GaGa, as I'm a fan of her music, and she has a great stage presence, but I was only making that comparison cause I was only noticing the differences.

But all we've seen is a sketch? Why make the comparison at all?

Sorry, I'm crabby because I went onto Twitter, and half of what I saw were comments about the Madonna show, with digs at Gaga.

Oh, no worries. I really don't pay attention to the GaGa-Madonna fan feud, quite useless - I only appreciate the music and tours that they put out, and I haven't gone on Twitter today.

Looks like Madge's concert in Istanbul was very revealing.

Still in some sort of disbelief after seeing that the other day. Did she really do that? Wonder if will occur again at the Rome show tomorrow. Oh, and it looks like she's giving a nod to her past - something similar happened at Jean Paul Gaultier's fashion show in 1992. More shocked to see it now than in 1992, for obvious reasons.

I think this shows that she's going all out on this tour, maybe controversial than ever. Incredible production, a (surprisingly) average setlist..as I said before, it's Madge at her best.

 


Looks like Madge's performing Like A Prayer again, which I don't mind...one of my favorite songs of hers. Killer tune.

MADONNA ISTANBUL 2012 - LIKE A PRAYER - YouTube

Sorry but the nipple thing is pathetic and embarrassing. Does Madonna really think that's necessary these days?

Meh, she's shown that nipple many times before, and it didn't sag so much then.

I didn't need to see it the first time, tbh.

I'm uncomfortable with it just because it seemed kind of desperate and awkward. So unnecessary. I was digging the performance until that and then it was like embarrassing. I was thinking it was a cool outfit and she was looking and acting age-appropriate while still being cool, loving her moves, etc., and then that just blew it for me.

And poor Rocco's in the show.

I'm getting a "desperate and awkward" with so much of her whole thing these days.

Despite all that, I'm still excited as all get out to see her in October.

I hope you don't have to see too much of her.

I've seen Harvey Keitel's penis in a few movies, so I think I can deal with a Madonna nipple.

Me, too. I just wish she'd do classy instead of desperate. One of my favorite performances was the Live 8 one when she was in the white pant suit. That's the direction I wish she would continue in in her 50s.
