Three Decades of Madonna


Thirty years into her career, Madonna remains a potent force, selling out stadiums faster than the biggest stars of the moment – something she’s been able to do at every step of her journey. Her MDNA Tour is no exception, and tonight I’ll be able to revisit it at Madison Square Garden with one of my best friends in the world, Suzie. At this point (our fifth Madonna show together) it’s more of a comfort and less of a once-in-a-lifetime event, but there’s still something undeniably special about a Madonna concert that even the most amazing performers can’t seem to muster. There is never a dull moment, never a lull in the action, and even when she disappears for a costume change or five, there is so much going on that you won’t want to take a bathroom break. It takes a pretty remarkable force to command such fascination over a span of three decades, even more so when there are no visible signs of slowing down. Whenever anyone rolls their eyes at me for my love of Madonna, I take it with a grain of salt and move on. When they’ve mastered the world for thirty years, then they can talk to me. Most of them, myself included, haven’t even started.

Being that this is my ninth time seeing Madonna, some have wondered why I’m getting so excited all over again. It’s because every time with Madonna feels like the very first time.
