Agree with Robert and John - appalling choice of venues globally!

I have been to every tour apart from The Virgin Tour; as much it pains me to say it, Hyde Park does not cut it for me. This tour should be called 'The Pile 'Em High, Pack 'Em In Tour".

I agree with Robert, I have been to every tour since Blonde Ambition in 1990 sometimes on more than one occasion but I wont be going to this one :o( I am very dissaponted at two dates for the UK (yes she may add more dependant on sales) and also the venues. I saw blonde ambition and girlie show at wembley stadium and enjoyed them but was just a boy :o) I went to sticky and sweet at wembley and it was rubbish, went to see it at the MEN arena in manchester and was blown away!! I dont think it is Madonna choosing the venues I think it is Live Nation that are being greedy and trying to make as much out of her as they can. It kills me to say it but i wont be there :o( GUTTED!!!! I pray she will add some arena dates

Hyde Park, this would be a shame due to the large area. These venues are far too big and there is no connection with the artist performing. I attended the Girlie Show, Drowned World, Reinvention, Confessions and the Sticky and Sweet tours. I have to say the indoor venues are much better. Sticky and Sweet was a complete waste of time and money. No atmosphere, and to be quite honest the performance was substandard for the money you paid. In regards to the Superbowl performance, miming is not good, anyone can mime. I think Madonna chooses these large venues to make as much money as possible with no consideration to the people who put her there in the first place.
