She was surprisingly punctual for her sold-out Rod Laver Arena show last night, after being four hours late for her one-off Forum show on Thursday.

That night was a rehearsal of a looser style of show, including her stand-up comedy. Last night we saw classic Madonna in full pop extravaganza mode.

She also apologised for the rough Tears of A Clown show, saying “I only had two days to rehearse — I’m gonna do it better next time, I promise.”

Madonna got back into clown mode briefly, riding a tiny bike, honking a horn and pulling out a hip flask.

She dedicated Take a Bow to Meldrum saying “you’re the best” before the crowd started chanting “Molly! Molly!”
