Madonna in Berlin!
The Queen of Pop has been in the capital since Monday evening with her children, many, many suitcases and a motorcade worthy of a super star. She lives at Soho House and plays two sold-out concerts, the first on Tuesday evening.
I was there!
I had been looking forward to this evening for weeks. However, I admit, I was already tired when I drove to the Mercedes-Benz Arena at 8:30 p.m. (after a very long day at work).

In front of the hall: queues of people. I was lucky and was brought in. Then the info: Madonna will probably come on stage around 10:15 p.m. She rehearsed until 7 p.m. and it took her three hours to finish.
No problem, I say and beam (even though I’m dead tired now),
Madonna is just Queen Madonna, and there A concert like this just starts later.

Apparently everyone sees it that way. In the arena: party and rave, men in high heels and glittery dresses, women in leather looks (like me). Just a good mood, a relaxed atmosphere. I love it! Madonna simply has the best fans. The young DJ on stage plays the music so loudly that the bass rumbles through my whole body.
After another hour and a half – it is now 10:20 p.m. – Madonna is on stage. And from then on I don’t look at the clock anymore. What does she look like (at 65 years old)? How does she move? How does her voice sound? What will she say?
Although late, she came and played for over two hours: Queen of Pop Madonna!
Madonna is great. And casual. And sexy. Like fourteen years ago, in the summer of 2009, when I saw their last tour of Germany in the Munich Olympic Stadium. In Berlin she shouts to the crowd: “I was told that everyone in Berlin takes drugs. Which? Who’s on drugs? Who is drunk? For whom does both apply?”
Queen Madonna laughs loudly and dirty, takes a sip from a beer bottle, enjoys every moment – and I enjoy “The Celebration” show.

I know every song, sing along, dance, have fun. “Like a Virgin,” “Hung Up,” “Nothing Really Matters.” A journey through time through Madonna’s life, the stage is based on her adopted home of New York.
Two of her children are on stage at times: daughter Mercy (17) accompanies her mother on the piano and ten-year-old Estere is already dancing as casually as the professionals around her. Madonna, you can tell, is proud of her kids. And loves her team.

After two hours and six minutes it’s (unfortunately) over. “Bitch, I’m Madonna,” she sings – and she’s gone. Sunk in the floor of the stage. It’s almost half past midnight.
Thank you, Madonna, for the night with you. Today, Wednesday, she is back on stage. Everyone who will be there can already look forward to it.
