Madonna Finally Opens Tour in London, Wears Knee Brace During Breathless Singing, Sits Down in a Chair During “Vogue”


Madonna opened her Celebration tour tonight finally at London’s 02 Arena. She was 90 minutes late with her start time, but that may be the least of her issues.

Madonna is 65 and suffering physically. She’s wearing big knee brace, and looks and sounds winded from the videos fans are putting up. I give her credit for doing this at all, producing such a big show. Will she get through it? Or will there be a lot of cancellations?

Below, Madonna doesn’t dance to “Vogue.” She struts on a catwalk and sits down in a chair on an ancillary stage! Her daughter, Lourdes, joins her. This reminds me of when Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme used to carry Frank Sinatra around on the stage. She’s doing chair yoga!

God bless Madonna. She wants to do it so badly!

keep refreshing for updates!
