Madame X Tour in Chicago – The Times of Northwest Indiana Review

Artistic expression was displayed in a mega way on stage at the Chicago Theatre Wednesday night.

Madonna was in the house and lighting up the wee hours of the night with an out-of-the-ordinary artsy production on her “Madame X” tour. Wednesday’s concert was the first show in her mini Chicago residency, which runs through Oct. 28 and has the “Material Girl” performing seven shows.

The tour is promoting her “Madame X” album, which is her latest release.

Everything about the show — from the ticketing process (all via phone) and its start time (10:30 p.m.) to a cell phone ban and its absence of many hits on the playlist — was quite different from most other productions.
As Madonna indicated early on in the show, she wanted her audience to be “present” in the moment and fully engaged in the artistry of it all. So, as soon as people entered the building, phones were taken and placed in a little pouch and not allowed to be used. read more →

Madame X Tour in Chicago – Chicago Sun-Times Review

The pop music icon delivered a potent three-hour spectacle Wednesday night at the Chicago Theatre where she kicked off the first of seven shows at the venue.

There will be a lot of exhausted people in Chicago over the next week and a half, particularly after attending one of Madonna’s shows during her mini-residency at the Chicago Theatre, which, after Wednesday night’s kickoff affair, boasts six more shows over the next 10 days.

With a 10:45 p.m. start time, and topping nearly three hours, the late-night, cell-phone-free spectacle will no doubt garner the ire of some attendees, but the greater takeaway is just how mentally exhausted the performer leaves her fans after the multi-faceted affair, making the show a worthwhile time investment at any start time.

In support of her new album, “Madame X,” released in June on Interscope Records, the show — like the record — extrapolates the many personas of one of the most polarizing figures in music history through well-rehearsed theatrical bits that blur the lines of performance art. Madonna as an artist, a mother, a global citizen, a New Yorker, a Midwesterner, a feminist, a provocateur, a human — all shine through in very distinct and connected ways under the guise of a secret agent looking to find her true identity. read more →

Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank on Madonna

On the brink of New York Fashion Week, Bhavna Anna Guyadeen sat down with the Madonna-approved doctor to get an insight into his holistic approach to Cosmetic Dermatology.

Bhavna: It is common knowledge that you work with Madonna. Every time I’ve seen her, she appears ageless. Can you talk a little bit about how you met, how has she changed your perspective on aging and beauty in general and the MDNA skincare collaboration?

Dr. Frank: So, we met about five years ago and she came to me on a recommendation of another patient, as sadly the last doctor she worked with had passed away. After working with her for about a year or two, I got involved in developing the skincare line with her and a Japanese technology company. Together, our tools and our formulas created the perfect synergy to defy the boundaries of modern science and deliver game-changing results.

I think that with Madonna – she’s learned a lot from me, I’ve learned a lot from her. To me, she is a perfect example of the ethos of my profession right now. There isn’t one thing that will keep you from aging. It’s a lifestyle combination. Madonna is the example of someone that is so driven in all of the aspects of her life. She takes good care of herself and her body with diet and exercise. So the small things I do make me look very talented as a doctor because she takes great care of herself. She also does all of these other things, from religion to meditation to diet to exercise to spending time with her family. These are the things that keep her looking ageless as you say, and they are working really well.

Before you walk through my doors, your diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, intimacy levels at home, and meditation should all be things that you are working on at home. I’m the icing on the cake – that is my philosophy. I really take a very holistic approach. You can’t inject happiness into someone’s life. However, when someone is taking care of themselves and working on themselves holistically, then it makes my job easy and together we can achieve the patient’s desired results.
