Madonna really seems to be feeling at home in Lisbon. In the second show held in the Portuguese capital, this Tuesday (14), the singer said happy to sing in the city. “You can’t imagine how long I waited for this moment to show what inspired me here,” celebrated Diva Pop.
Very comfortable on stage, Madonna told jokes, spoke a bad word in Portuguese – Car **** – and sang fado, a local rhythm, accompanied by guitarist Gaspar Varela, great-grandson of Celeste Rodrigues, a fadista whose American artist is an admirer. .
Madonna also joked about the “25 injuries” that affect her. “Don’t pay attention to what’s going on from the waist down,” she said. The Queen of Pop’s ill health caused her to cancel a series of shows in the United States last year: two in New York, one in Los Angeles, three in Boston and the last, which was scheduled for December 22 in Miami
Singing 1994’s “Human Nature,” the singer ended the number of women surrounded, including her daughters Stella and Estere. Already after performing “Medellin”, she dropped the crown and came down from the stage to talk to a fan in the audience. The chosen one was a German named Ben.
Local press complimented the artist’s performance and highlighted the participation of the Batukadeiras Orchestra as one of the highlights of the show. Madonna performs in Lisbon until January 23rd. She then performs 29 other shows in London and Paris.
