has received many fan reports from the Thursday night show at Wembley Stadium - and it seems a case of how much you enjoyed the show depended where you sat (or stood) - and how successful you were on getting onto public transport to get home.
We had glowing reviews from fans in the gold circle (madonnalicious was in the gold circle and the sound was fine there), but those seated on the sides or at the back had trouble hearing and/or seeing the full staging of the show. It seems that this problem has just been distinct to Wembley Stadium as other Sticky & Sweet Tour stadium shows had great reviews.
Here are a selection of fan reports - to read the full reviews and more visit the London Fan Reviews section:
The sound check ran late, so we didn't go in until almost six. They told us we would be let in twenty minutes before everyone else in the stadium, then wait at the gates before going onto the pitch.
For us, there was never a moment of confusion. Staff were so helpful, they even told us EXACTLY how long we had to wait inside and directed us to the bars and toilets for our 'last go' before we were let in.
It was just an amazing experience....until the train station closed but that is just poor planning by transport not having enough services.
We were right up the front for the first set then moved to the back of the gold circle where the view was even better! Being up the front was fun, but if you want to see the show go back about ten metres!
I have been a Madonna fan for over 25 years and have gone to all her concerts. Last night I was seated to the right of the stage. There were no screens that were visible and you could not hear her. Everyone seated towards the back were walking out of the concert after the first three songs due to them not been able to see or hear her.
I would interested to know anyone else suffered a similar experience.
We were at Wembley last night in the Gold Circle....to see our all time favourite! Yes she was good, BUT the sound was terrible in places.
During Into The Groove you could not hear her for the heavy bass, and when ever she spoke it was very distorted. For some one of her stature you dont expect this but we had a good night.
Basically I just came back from Wembley and couldn't wait to share with you guys how excited I (still) am.
Madonna was just 'superb'. She got confused with the words of Like A Prayer....can you believe it?
She also thank God that it didn't 'fucking' rain. I was at the pitch standing and I did fell some drops though.
It was a blast. She was unbelievable amazing.
The Madonna concert in London last night was amazing. Highlights for me were the Britney video – even though I seemed to be the only one screaming – Borderline, which visibly made Madonna happy, and Heartbeat, which was stunning and had perfect sound. Furthermore, You Must Love Me proved that Madonna's voice gets more technical with age, the Like a Prayer mix was even better than the original, the Give It To Me routine is so innovative, and the art direction for Devil was breathtaking.
The show was beautiful. Madonna is a legend. So are her legs.
I went to the show last night and was incredibly disappointed. We had tickets in the upper level - I've been to the last four tours and have had closer seats so wasn't expecting it to be as great an experience of course - but it wasn't any experience at all - we were up top left as you faced the stage, and I am absolutely certain something was not right about the sound - we could barely hear Madonna half of the time - every time she spoke you could see everyone looking at each other to see if it was just them. Some songs were unrecognisable until the chorus - it sounded like we had our ears full of water.
Fabulous as ever, I'll be honest I wasn't expecting too much as I'm not crazy about the Hard Candy CD but she blew me away yet again. The opening song was fabulous, great entrance, the whole thing was spectacular.
Loved the reworking of Vogue and Borderline. Like A Prayer was also fabulous. The only bit I didn't like was the end of the gypsy section. You Must Love Me was beautiful, felt very honest and personal.
