Madonna spokeswoman defends booed Paris show
Madonna’s spokeswoman has defended the star’s Thursday night show in Paris after she was booed by disgruntled fans.
Several sections of the audience, who had paid up to 280 Euros to see the Material Girl perform at the city’s L’Olympia venue, demanded their money back following a set which lasted just 45 minutes.
However, Liz Rosenberg told MTV that the gig was a huge success: “Madonna's Paris club show was planned as her heartfelt thank-you to France, which she expressed at the start of her show.
"Despite her gruelling concert tour, she desperately wanted to perform for her fans in an intimate setting at the historic Olympia as a means to honour her love for French artists, French cinema and a tribute to France's long history of welcoming and inspiring artists, authors, painters, poets and minorities from other countries over the years."
Rosenberg went on to argue that the late addition to the tour was never intended to be on a full-blown scale:
"The show was not billed as her full 'MDNA' concert and tremendous effort was made to keep the ticket prices reasonable ($100 for 2,000 floor seats) and keep them strictly to her fans. The show cost Madonna close to a million dollars to produce. She has done a handful of club dates in the past and they were never more than 45 minutes."
"And by the way, she put on a fabulous show, which was streamed for millions of fans around the world."
