Madonna concert

I realize that last night was monumental, election-wise, but I have more important news to share: I went to the Madonna concert last night!!!! I went with Michelle, Miranda, and Carolyn and we had a blast! Madonna is incredible and not one part of her looks 50 years old. And let me tell you, that woman has some moves. We were gettin' into the groove, up on our feet, and steppin' to the beat all night long. What an entertainer. The pictures didn't turn out great, but here are a few:

Carolyn, Michelle, Jane, Miranda


There were plenty of characters at the concert and here is Carolyn with one of our faves

I too, wanted a picture with the embellished, goth bell boy but then "Bono" decided to crash the picture

We were right in front of the big screen monitors

But we had floor seats and the stage wasn't too far. She looks tiny in this picture but I would say that she was maybe 150 feet from us?

There were some amazing effects too. At one point, Madonna was in the middle of this round screen that had cool images flashing on it. It's kind of hard to tell but in this particular clip there were raindrops spinning around on it. You can see her crouched down briefly in the beginning.




Besides staying out way past my bedtime and waking up early to go to work this morning, it was an awesome experience. Thanks M, C, and M for sharing it with me!!

Was this concert at Petco Park? My brother works at the Padres games selling Cinnamon Coated Nuts and I think that he mentioned working the night of the concert. It looks like you had a great time!

Well, I've never really been to a concert (I've been waiting for someone like this) so I have nothing to compare it to, but I thought it was great!
