Anyway, the merch counter had just fallen over and there was a rising sense of calamity which didn’t need adding to.
Madonna goes deep with her fans. The connection is genuine and mutual. Nobody blames her for cancelling shows due to extreme pain in her knees and hips, people just hope it’s not on their night (she has subsequently ruled out shows on 4 and 11 February).
“I feel so guilty,” another fan told me. “My mates had tickets for Monday night, which was cancelled and I’ve just sent a WhatsApp of my seat tonight.”
“Where are you sitting?” I asked
“Row U in the stalls,” he said
“How much did you pay?”
“£250” he said “Not bad eh? I think it’s going to be great.”
And it was – 5-star great.
