The Confessions Tour in Hannover Germany photo gallery online

Madonna had a hangover in Hannover, at least that’s what she told the crowd at the AWD arena during The Confessions Tour in 2006. After the slightly cranky performance in Dusseldorf Madonna seemed to be enjoying herself a lot more during her second and final show in Germany.

We spoke to a few crew members right before the show, including Mr. Guy Oseary who all confirmed that Madonna was in much better spirits for this show. Madonna joked around, kept making silly faces to her band and dancers and disappeared inside her winter coat during “Drowned World / Substitute For Love”

We have 52 updated and enhanced photographs of the Hannover stop online for you to view in our photo gallery HERE

Book signing for Synthesis II “Adore” Madonna and Fusuma Photography at Ippodo Gallery

Ippodo Gallery welcomes you to the book signing for Synthesis II “Adore” Madonna and Fusuma Photography, the second solo exhibition of works by Kenji Wakasugi. ADORE is the complete overview of the session – 200 pages include 324 frames, 10 contact sheets, together with 111 large format black and white portraits. For three and a half decades this collection remained private, near silent. Furthermore, the design of this art-book pays homage to Japanese 80’s minimalism. The aqua cover features only the title ADORE debossed in ebony lettering. Madonna’s name is foiled in Japanese text on the accompanying canary yellow and neon pink bellybands (hand sewn) – the idea being that the book itself becomes an object of beauty.⁠

Please join for a book signing with the artist Kenji Wakasugi (@kenji_wakasigi) and publisher and creative director of NJG Studio Ltd. (@njg_studio), Nick Groarke. The event will take place on Saturday December 4th from 3-5 PM at Ippodo Gallery, 32 E 67th St. RSVP via email to mail@ippodogallery.com.

The Confessions Tour in Düsseldorf photo gallery online!

After London we traveled to Dusseldorf Germany to attend our fifth show of The Confessions Tour in 2006. This was the first show without assigned seats so it was time to queue! The queuing ended in a complete and total nightmare. Not only were we soaked by the pouring rain throughout the day, but the organisation used caution tape to divide the rows of people. Of course once the infamous ‘rush’ started, the tape was torn and people were suddenly on our backs. 

As we were crushed against the one gate separating the crowd from the ticket-check, we managed to throw ourselves over the gate and security even helped us get up. Once we finally got inside we never even realized that Madonna was in the midst of her soundcheck, until we heard a very familiar voice telling the people inside the arena to ‘shut up’ as this was not the show. While still trying to catch our breath, Madonna (who was obviously not in the best of moods) continued to rehearse “Future Lovers” and “Get Together”.
