The MDNA Tour in Barcelona updated photo gallery

On this day ten years ago Madonna performed the first of two shows at the Palau St. Jordi in Barcelona during her MDNA Tour. While the people queuing outside in the heat were treated to the rehearsal in afternoon, once inside the venue by the clock of 7pm Madonna had already left the stage.

Madonna performed a stunning show, absolute perfection from the beginning until the very end. Many people were in need of fluids after the show as the experience had soaked up all of their energy (and sweat)

Sky Ferreira on missing out the role of Madonna in biopic

….’She has also had validation from her formative inspirations. Recently, she narrowly missed out on the role of Madonna in the official biopic. “It was the most surreal thing at first,” Ferreira says of the extensive auditions. She worshipped Madonna as a kid, and went to clubs and “talked shit” in order to get noticed as a teenager because that’s what Madonna did. “And it worked!” Ferreira sang Like a Virgin with her, wearing her clothes. “And she did my makeup!

Julia Garner als Madonna (Dutch news)

Volgens ingewijden van Variety is Julia Garner namelijk dé favoriet voor de rol als Madonna in de biografische film die de zangeres zelf gaat regisseren. De actrice zou de uitverkorene zijn om de rol van Madonna te vertolken en zou uit een groot aantal kandidaten zijn verkozen. Zelfs het contract zou Julia al zijn aangeboden.
 
In de film volg je Madonna’s jonge jaren als muzikant, terwijl ze zich ontwikkelt tot ultieme queen of pop. Als Julia Garner inderdaad deze rol op zich gaat nemen, zien we haar op een manier zoals we haar in Inventing Anna nog niet eerder hebben gezien. De rol als Madonna vereist namelijk naast acteertalent, ook enige dans- en zangskills.

Julia Garner Offered Madonna Role in Universal Biopic (EXCLUSIVE)

“Inventing Anna” actress Julia Garner has been offered the role of Madonna in a forthcoming biopic about the pop icon, sources familiar with the project told Variety.

Garner has emerged the favorite from over a dozen candidates, one insider added, and has for months been speculated as a frontrunner for the part — a performance Madonna will shepherd herself as director. Garner’s team is considering and expected to accept the offer, said another source.

The film is set up at Universal Pictures, and will follow the early days of the oft-controversial artist and queen of perpetual reinvention. Universal Filmed Entertainment Group chairman Donna Langley won the script in a multi-studio bidding war, and Amy Pascal is attached as a producer.
