Record numbers turn out for Madonna

Madonna has given Switzerland’s the biggest ever concert, eclipsing that of the Rolling Stones’ show two years earlier.

Altogether 72,000 fans descended on the Dubendorf former military airfield near Zurich, 10,000 more than the Rolling Stones attracted at the same venue in 2006.

The singer was given a standing ovation as she was brought in on a throne at the start of the show. She made eight costume changes during the two-hour show and performed alongside 16 dancers and 12 musicians.

Organisers Good News said they were satisfied with the event. They counted just 2,000 cars at the venue, with the vast majority of fans travelling on 130 extra trains put on for the concert.

Police said the event ran smoothly with no serious incidents reported, although 220 people needed first aid.

Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour is travelling to 50 countries on 50 trucks – 28 fewer than were required for the Rolling Stones.

Madonna : Stop Smoking, Keep On Singing!

from Madonna.com :

Dear Madonna fans,
The Material Girl has embarked on her “Sticky & Sweet” Tour and is currently performing live in several European cities. While thousands of you attend the show each and every night, our girl is giving her best to each and everyone of you.
Singing and dancing along with her is a fantastic way to support her, but there’s a little something some of you can do to turn the experience into the ultimate one. If you’re watching the show from the first front rows, we ask that you please refrain from smoking as it blows up on the stage.
Thank you for your understanding, we appreciate your help!

Madonna Stuns Airport Staff

Pop superstar Madonna stunned security staff at an airport in Germany on Thursday night – by turning up wearing a bathrobe.

The Holiday hitmaker arrived at Schoenefeld airport after performing at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin as part of her Sticky + Sweet world tour.

But staff at the venue were shocked to see the star wander through security checks wearing nothing more than a fluffy white robe and black trainers.

The singer’s gown had the cheeky slogan “Dancing Queen” printed on the back.
