REMINDER : myMDNA will be LIVE BLOGGING from opening night – get all the info here
First you hear bells ringing, and than a prayer which is probably in Hebrew. Finally Girl Gone Wild starts. All we want to tell you – without ruining the anticipation – is that something big is moving from left to right. And Madonna is actually entering the stage from the side this time.
Act of Contrition / Girl Gone Wild - starts with church bells, then the hebrew chanting, part of the chant is “madonna, madonna, madonna”, as if they are parying to a god. The MDNA sign on top of the stage lights up in red.
I did not really get a good view of the video screens yet at this point, so I didnt see the motel scene…. It was definitely a great pair of songs and the lighting was really dark spooky.
Papa Don’t Preach - only half is played. album version.
Hung Up - a more dramatic version of the song, similar to papa don’t preach’s sound.
I Don’t Give A – This is the song with that picture of madonna on a tall platform that was uploaded a few days ago.
Best Friend / Heartbeat (INTERLUDE)
Express Yourself Lots of energy – midway she sings born this way and then she’s not me (exactly what we already knew). It was a nice mix – basically showing you how the songs easily flow into one another.
Turn Up The Radio - She’s on her guitar, the video screens only show her. but it’s pretty much the same version as the album. Great energy.
Give Me All Your Luvin’ - More of a hip hop sounding version.
Open Your Heart - Basque production. Really beautiful! Not high energy like the album version, but more like a pseudo-ballad.
Masterpiece - Her voice sounded great here! She messed up something in the middle and shouted “Shit” at one point lol.
Justify My Love (INTERLUDE) - circus like. Those clowns we saw on those pics are featured here.
Vogue - Same sound and dancing as the superbowl.
Candy Shop - Not as bad as we all thought – I liked it, but still would have preferred another song instead.
Human Nature / Erotica - Human Nature was just like the album version.
Like A Virgin - I don’t remember hearing this…I’m using the setlist posted earlier.
Nobody Knows Me (INTERLUDE)
I’m A Sinner - Album version, nice choreography.
Like A Prayer - Again Basque production – Amazing sounding version. Very dramatic…probably my favorite version of LAP!
Celebration Lots of energy and lights, but Give it to Me was a much better ending IMO. Madonna does some Amazing dance moves!!
