Sticky & Sweet Tour in Gothenburg – Pictures by Gabriel
Madonna performs during her Sticky and Sweet tour in Gothenburg (August 08 2009)
I met up with my friend Carola early in the morning. We queued from 9:45 in the morning. We heard that they played most of the songs from the arena but didn’t sound like a soundcheck because nobody sang in the verse…
It was so nervous right before we got in and when we saw the stage it looked so small comparing to last year… don’t know if they build it smaller or what but we ended up front row, in front of the catwalk at the left side. We had a very good spot on the catwalk and the main stage. Only bad thing was that the 4 rounded stages around the catwalk, one of them was in front of us and blocked a bit of our view.
Later around eight in the evening Paul Oakenfold started. It was good and we danced but you got tired of it in the end until celebration was played and Hypnosis and Jaron Boyd danced on the stage!
At the same time Guy O walked around the catwalk and took pictures of the fans. He signed a girl’s Confessions book next to us and took a picture of me in my revolver tee from Luka who does great Madonna art! It had M-dolla written on the back but I forgot to show him that. I was to happy haha! That was one of the highlights and felt so amazing!! (I have a video that Carola filmed will upload it later). :)
When Madonna camed on the stage everybody went crazy! She did faces just before she started candy shop and looked amazing!!! We saw everything so good and when human nature was on and she pointed the finger and we pointed it back to her :P
In into the groove after she jumped the rope Sofia kissed her right bicep and so did Madonna haha! Dj Inferno touched her back to!
Then holiday was on and it was so good!!! I loved it and Antboogie got on the stage at the end of the catwalk in front of us and I screamed “Antboogie” and he reacted and looked at me and took my hand, made me so happy!
Later on in she’s not me when Madonna was in front of us I screamed “WE LOVE YOUU!!!” and she turned her head back and gave me a mean bitchy look haha :D!
In miles away we all clapped our hands and sang “so far away” so loud just like in the broadcast from Buenos Aires, and we sang along thru the whole song. Later on in you must love me she had the black jacket on and had a small speech before she started saying:
During La isla bonita she was in front of us at the small rounded stage and tried to reach our hands and everybody went crazy in that moment. But the lady only touched a guy’s fingertip haha!
“I have a special place in my heart for Sweden. Swedish people are very creative people, very sexual people, and they like to party…”
It was funny haha and during you must love me she sang “you must love me…even when I play the wrong chords and everybody laughed haha! Then in the end she said you muuuuuuuust looveeeee…. And the crowd said both me and you and she said me or you? And then continued…” meee or yooouu – funny and great moment!
It seemed like the last section went down the best. The whole audience went crazy!! Frozen was to die for and during ray of light she didn’t let us stand. And right before this song the audience did the “uuuah uuuah” sound and she did it too! She wanted us to jump all the time, it was hard haha!
Everybody seemed to love Give it 2 me as the last song. She got of the stage in the end of the song and we regret we didn’t stand where she got of… but she camed almost to our side later and we did the give it 2 me dance the whole time and sang until she was gone!
It was an amazing night and the fact that it was in Sweden made it more special for me! We had this long discussion of how she can put up with 2 hours of dancing, singing, jumping and everything. We were dead half thru the show!
