Madonna, O2 London, gig review: It’s religion and rebellion as her Madgeness reminds us why she is such an enduring talent
“London are you ready?” Madonna launches her four-day stint at London’s O2 to promote her 13th album, Rebel Heart, with plenty of bling and swagger. Entering with a host of gold-clad dancers costumed as Roman soldiers, she’s modestly – for her Madgeness – dressed in black sparkly dress and a cape, which perhaps due to a choreography rethink after her fall at the Brits earlier this year, is removed a good few seconds before she strides down the steps to the thrust stage shaped like a crucifix.
The demure costume doesn’t last, of course, she soon strips down, and drops to her knees, her crotch meeting her fans’ eye line to play electric guitar on “Burning Up” from her latest Rebel Heart album and pole dances on a crucifix with dancers dressed in pants and nuns’ habits before reenacting the last supper for “Holy Water” and “Devil Pray”. Can you see a theme developing here?
