Events: Madonna Celebrates the Candy Shop

Celebrating the last true pop icon: Madonna

Icons don’t get much bigger than Madonna. She’s transfixed us for decades. We follow her every move, intoxicated by her unstoppable fame, beautiful men, glamour and incredible wealth. Let’s face it: at some time or another, we’ve all wanted to be Ms Ciccone.

Now, thanks to London’s premier Madonna party ‘Madonna Celebrates the Candy Shop’ on December 3rd, you too can immerse yourself in the Queen of Pop’s fantastic world.

'Madonna is what life is all about,' enthuses Kurt Hoffman who is organising the ninth annual Madonna Celebrates event. 'This year’s going to be bigger and better than anything we’ve done before. Everything has been especially designed to allow you to step into the intoxicating realm of the ultimate pop superstar. We want fans to experience Madonna like they never have before.'

The night will be held at the newly refurbished Eagle, south London’s premier polysexual bar and club, which now boasts an extraordinary Funktion-One sound system which will play the entire Sticky and Sweet tour.

'You’ll never have heard sound like it,' says Hoffman. 'But it’s not just about the acoustics – with a Madge-inspired set designed by Adrian Britnell, who has worked on such blockbusters as Moulin Rouge and Star Wars, we’re also in for real visual treat.'

Seven vast video screens, a ‘Candy Shop’, VIP area, Vogue ‘runway’, art installation, secret garden and a multi-mirror balled dance floor will be inviting you to get into the groove.

Stay tuned for a competition to win one of TEN PAIRS of VIP tickets to the event at madonnalicious.com

Hoffman knows his Madonna and started the event in 2007 after seeing her ground-breaking Confession’s Tour.

'Back then it was just a bit of fun,' he says. 'We’ve now been on an amazing journey and worked with some of the best acts and DJs going.'

Topping the bill this year will be Melissa Totten, a highly-respected Madonna impersonator, who will be treating revellers to key moments from the Sticky and Sweet tour.

'David Bowie and Prince are just two of the truly unique artists we’ve lost in 2016,' she muses. 'Madonna is one of our last icons, and even if she hung it all up today, she would have left a deep and lasting impact on pop culture. Music is not what it once was. Madonna floats high above the formulaic, canned pop you get on reality TV shows. There won’t be another like her, so we need to enjoy her now.'

Melissa will be joined by gay scene legends Mzz Kimberley and Seth Stomboli, along with the kind of super-human dancers you’ll see cavorting with Madonna in one of her legendary shows.

The night will also be raising money for local charity Wandsworth Oasis which supports local people living with HIV.
