05-14-2008, 04:58 PM
You finally are asking about this? Can I get the championship belt with the M? I wonder if she is gonna sell those on her tour?

05-14-2008, 05:06 PM
all she needs is a beard!

05-14-2008, 05:07 PM
I like it

I'm glad I saw her at Coachella, cuz I sure don't think the ticket prices are worth it for her current tour.

05-14-2008, 05:15 PM
her song 4 minutes is awful. as is that cover.

05-15-2008, 01:24 PM
This is gonna be the worst thing I have ever typed but. I like the Britney Spears album more. OH GOD MY SOUL HURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTS

05-15-2008, 01:25 PM

Skipping AZ again. That cunt.

05-15-2008, 01:42 PM
My poor sister has been wanting to see her live for 25 years or some shit, and when Madonna came here last time (first time in 20 years or so), my sister was out of town and relied on her husband to get the tickets. He's an asshole in general and didn't get her the tickets, and it sold out. I guess I'm off the hook since I won't have to go with her and spend too much money anyway.

05-15-2008, 02:43 PM
havent listened, but the movie is better im sure.

05-15-2008, 04:36 PM
4 minutes has got to be a contender for worst song of the year.

06-23-2008, 11:31 AM
finally just got this cd, wowowow it kicks major ass, what is this power that Madge has over gay men? i'm hypnotized (again)

06-23-2008, 11:55 AM

06-23-2008, 11:59 AM

i'm so hypnotized right now Lee, i'm strongly considering forking over the cash to see her show

06-23-2008, 12:05 PM
I know, I just like barging in and shouting "KILL IT WITH FIRE".

06-23-2008, 12:06 PM
i bet you secretly like her

at least, I like to think you do haha

06-23-2008, 12:48 PM
hating on Madonna is stupid. if you can't at least have respect for an artist that has constantly reinvented herself to stay relevant and has become the biggest female artist of all time, transcending generations... than you're an idiot. with that said i preferred her dance phase, but am still interested in seeing her in november (it's my girls b-day that weekend... only reason i am going)

06-23-2008, 12:49 PM
its gunna be a great show blackswan, thats pretty much for sure, depending how things are financially i'll be hitting her show too

i mean i spent a pretty penny to see justin timberlake last year (thats right), so why not Madge

06-23-2008, 12:53 PM
its gunna be a great show blackswan, thats pretty much for sure,

that combined with a super excited fiance and choice self-medication should make for a great night. madonna has def been on my list of people i would like to see before they stop touring.

06-23-2008, 12:55 PM
and choice self-mediacation .

i like your style!

06-23-2008, 12:57 PM
i like your style!

self-mediacation <- now if only i could spell it right the first time.

06-23-2008, 12:58 PM
haha, I didnt even notice it man

06-23-2008, 12:58 PM

06-23-2008, 12:59 PM
hey! shes still got it sonic

06-23-2008, 01:06 PM
It was just the first thing to pop in my head...I live by the warner music bldg in burbank and there is a huge poster of the album cover on the one side of the building....I just thought man do I need to see a 60 foot 50 year old woman spreading her legs like that.

06-23-2008, 01:09 PM
LOL! i would love to be able to stare at that thing everyday

06-23-2008, 01:14 PM
Maybe she named her album 'Hard Candy' because old people love butterscotch.

06-23-2008, 05:42 PM
I can't think about her without thinking about that joke by Neil Hamburger.

"What do you call a senior citizen that likes to expose themselves in public?"


06-24-2008, 12:07 PM
^ stupid joke. seriously.

06-24-2008, 12:34 PM
That's pretty much the point of Neil Hamburger...

June 24, 2008 --

Live Nation is on the defensive about the health of its $120 million Madonna deal.

Big sales around the world for the Material Girl's upcoming "Sticky & Sweet" tour have been overshadowed in music industry circles by chatter about the large number of tickets still available for a key stop in Los Angeles in November and softer-than-expected sales of her latest album "Hard Candy."

The tour so far has grossed more than $74 million in sales for 13 dates in Europe and piled up a string of sellouts at arenas across North America, according to Live Nation.

Arthur Fogel, chairman of global music and CEO of the global touring division at Live Nation, projects the tour will gross more than $250 million in ticket sales - surpassing her record-breaking "Confessions on a Dance Floor" tour two years ago, which pulled in $195 million worldwide.

But just over half of the 43,000 seats available for a Nov. 6 date at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium - 27,000 tickets in all - have been sold in their first three weeks of availability, raising red flags about the limits of US demand for the 49-year-old Madonna at this stage of her career.

It also comes as Live Nation's management has been at odds over the strategy of handing out big-bucks, all-encompassing contracts, known as 360 deals, for aging stars like Madonna and Jay-Z. The rift led to last week's exit of company chairman Michael Cohl.

To be sure, Madonna's sales have been better at other venues.

A Nov. 4 show at San Diego's Petco Park has sold 29,000 of 35,000 seats. And over 33,000 out of 42,000 available tickets were sold for a Nov. 26 stadium date in Miami.

And her US arena dates, including three nights at Madison Square Garden, have sold out.

But at the biggest venues, consumers in the US are not rushing for Madonna tickets with the same fervor that they are in Europe and other parts of the world.

An Aug. 30 show at the Military Airfield Deubendorf in Zurich, Switzerland, sold over 70,000 tickets in days in May, and an October date in Vancouver, BC, sold 50,000 tickets in 29 minutes.

The economy could be a factor - top tickets for Madonna are running as high as $500 at a time when food and gas costs are soaring.

Her latest album is doing solid but unspectacular business in the US. "Hard Candy" has sold 544,000 copies domestically, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's barely half of what rapper Lil Wayne recently sold in the first week for his latest album "Tha Carter III."

Analysts note that the album could be hard pressed to match the business of her last album "Confessions on a Dance Floor," which sold more than 1.6 million copies in the US.

Fogel, who has produced Madonna's last three tours, said concern about ticket demand is overblown.

He noted that there are close to five months to go before the US stadium shows in question open, and each one has already grossed $3 million to $4 million in sales.

Live Nation stock closed down 3.92 percent, or 46 cents, at $11.27.

maybe they shouldn't charge $350 for decent seats...

06-24-2008, 12:44 PM
If you can't afford them, dont buy them.
People are paying way more than $350 for floor seats through secondary markets.

06-24-2008, 12:45 PM
besides $350 are floor seats which are way more than "decent" seats.

06-24-2008, 03:41 PM
its still a lot of money, something I can never afford

06-24-2008, 04:02 PM
every time I see the Hard Candy album in stores, the cover makes me laugh
