    Just got tixs through the first presale, anybody else? They go an sale officially next Monday but there's tons of presales. Sign up for live nation for their presale email this week. Will be on a diet of canned tuna for a while to pay for them but it's protein anyways

    AMoonHawk saidShe would have been worth seeing 10 or 20 years ago .... no so much any more. Watching her Super Bowl performance I just kept thinking how sad, she used to be so lively in her youth, now she moves around the stage like an old lady trying to act young. She's stiff and not so limber and she has old lady legs. I'll give it to her that she still moves pretty good for her age ... but it really just doesn't look right.

    She did ok for someone performing with a pulled hamstring injury.

    . Don't rain on my parade icon_razz.gif. even if she stood in one spot I'd be happy, u have to admit the half time show was a huge spectacle unlile any other and her concerts have the biggest budget and theatrics that can't be matched.

    HA! I'm sure you were more "lively" in your youth too. Let's see YOU do a cartwheel on a bleacher with a pulled hamstring in 5 inch heels in front of 100,000 people in a Super Bowl stadium. icon_wink.gif I hear pre-sales of Madonna tix are going to sellout rather quickly....pre-sales for the new MDNA cd #1 in 52 countries. Gosh, poor thing -- such a "has been" ----- NOT! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    It looks like you have to join her fanclub, which is free, by providing your email address. And then you have to upgrade to an Icon Live Pass, which costs $18.95. That gives you a password good for 1 week. Then you go to Ticketmaster and type in the password to purchase presale tickets (which run from $107 to $390).

    This is fucking complicated! What happened to spending the night with your buddies in front of Turtle Records? #oldendays

    And I got my tickets. I was contemplating just getting floor ones, but since I've never been to her concert and have waited all my life for this (I've never been able to attend any of her previous tours due to logistical constaints), I ended up going for the 2nd level VIP tickets. I am officially crazy.

    Got my tix for Rogers Arena, September 29! Yay! This will only be my second Madonna concert (I really wished she had come to Vancouver for her Confessions Tour).

    And I never understand the vitriol that comes flooding when it pertains to Madonna. So what? She's 53; she's still making pop music just as she has always been. Get over it. If this was a male musician, I doubt they'd be getting the same amount of scrutiny. It's incredibly sexist/agist talk, and the source is often somewhat surprising and sad. I guess the saying is true: "Those who can rock, do. Those who can't, become rock critics".

    Won't be attending the concert, but hats off to her. Mad respect for that old broad.

    Can't we hear the full album before deciding? I saw Re-Invention and Sticky and Sweet... kicking myself for missing Confessions, but I doubt she is going to pull off another one like that. 90% chance I'll skip this one.

    The cities I want aren't on sale until March. I'm going to attempt to see her twice, once in Cleveland and once in Atlanta with my best friend!
