    I FINALLY Saw My First Celebrity Crush in Concert!! Madonna Concert Review

    • Date of Concert:  Monday, January 15, 2024
    • Location of Concert:  Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, Michigan

    I have been a fan of Madonna since I was 7 years old, when I saw her in the movie Dick Tracy in the theater in 1990.

    She was my first celebrity crush and I have never stopped being a fan.

    I really like most of her albums and videos, (she still sings great) but I never saw her in concert.

    Until now!!

    I saw her in her hometown of Detroit.

    She puts on quite a show, with tons of songs from throughout her career, lots of costume changes, dance routines with other dancers, and she had a lot to say.

    She told stories about her parents.  Her Dad was with her at the show and she said that he taught her hard work and said that “if you think I’m a warrior, you can thank my Dad”.  And she said she hopes he is proud of her. 

    She talked about her Mom (she was pictured during part of the show) and how she’s with her all the time.  She also said she is proud to be a Mom (two of her daughters were part of the show, one playing piano, the other doing a fashion show walk) and thanked all the hard working Moms out there. 

    She talked about how she persevered when she had nothing and ultimately made it because of hard work.

    And she thanked all of the fans for sticking by her all of these years.  I’m happy to be one of those supporters.

    This tour literally is a celebration of her over 40 year career, spanning most of it in various songs, dance/show routines, videos, stage clothes, the works.

    She has always been great, in my opinion.  A couple of albums I don’t love, but I love most of them and even the ones I don’t love have good songs on them too.

    As you’ll see by the pictures and videos I took below are not great because my seat was not the best.  There was a piece of stage in the way of my view, but I still enjoyed the show and am very glad I FINALLY saw “The Queen of Pop”.

    A DJ opened the show and Special Guest Bob The Drag Queen (a.k.a. Caldwell Tidicue) appeared several times throughout the show as well.

    She puts everything she has into the show and in her career.  Always has and always will.

    I know she is considered controversial at times, but I’ve always been a fan.  I know I keep saying that but I mean it.

    I think her music is great.  I’ve always thought she was and is beautiful.  She’s made some good movies too like Dick Tracy, A League Of Their Own, Evita, just to name a few.

    This was a big bucket list concert for me.  

    Thank you Madonna for everything.

    You are loved by me and the world over.
