Thank you @Madonna with all my heart for giving me your Polaroid tonight! Meeting you and telling you how much you’ve inspired me and taught me over 35 years was an honour and dream come true. I love you ❤️#MadameXTour @LondonPalladium pic.twitter.com/yMbiWUu53b

Madonna started the show later today and therefore cut the first couple of songs now opening with ‘Vogue’ instead of ‘God Control’. Everything else was the same, even though she was visibly in more pain than the previous ‘opening’ night.
Madonna’s London Palladium residency finally got under way last night with a quote from writer James Baldwin: “Artists are here to disturb the peace”. And the ensuing show was certainly a riot, romping through a dizzying array of genres, set pieces and themes. We’ve come to expect that from Madonna, of course, but the difference…Details
The Queen of Pop overcame injury to deliver one of her most memorable shows yet in London. It was a smart move on Madonna’s part to ban the use of mobile phones for her Madame X tour. More than four months since its New York premiere, the show arrived in London to great excitement; its…Details
Madonna review, London Palladium: An eyeball-twisting audiovisual assault with more action than a Marvel movie ****

Madonna made a triumphant return to the stage last night as her Madame X Tour finally arrived in London. For a while, it was touch and go if she’d even make it to curtain up, after an injury to her knee sustained on the road last year lead her to axe her planned first date…Details
The show had an intimacy not usually associated with a star of Madonna’s calibre ★★★★☆ “I never quit!” Madonna told her fans in a statement in late December. Unfortunately, she had done just that — on doctor’s orders. Madonna’s Madame X tour features the reigning queen of pop playing a gruelling six-month schedule of smaller venues, in…Details
She looked sore and stiff at times, but at 61, the Queen of pop’s still got it (London Palladium Review)
Rating: To be honest, I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to write a review of Madonna‘s long-awaited Madame X show last night. Not because she cancelled – again (this has happened ten times so far, due to an unspecified injury, said to be a dodgy knee and hip) – but because the Queen of Pop…Details

Madonna’s hotly anticipated Madame X tour finally arrived in the UK last night — and was well worth the wait.
The signing superstar — who at 61 has faced a string of health battles — made her debut at the London Palladium, albeit two days later than planned. But she was on immaculate form ahead of 13 further dates over the next three weeks. Whether it be as a singer, a comedian or an actress, she…Details
