Got $300 to spare? If so, you are in luck! Madonna is charging that much to go see her perform on a tour that is bound to be so worth it, her team of marketing people spent millions on the first order of business – coming up with the name for the tour. The tour will simply be called “Madonna.” Wow! Genius!
Just remember, for your $300, you’re pretty much guaranteed a bad seat, you’ll see tons of great dancing that will be so choreographed, you might as well be watching it on video and you are guaranteed to hear in between song banter that will sparsely be more than “Hello (insert city here).”
The first show sold out at lightening speed because guess what – this formula works! If you are willing to spend that amount of money, you deserve all of the above things, but please don’t come crying to me the next day saying the show sucked. If you’ve heard any of her music from the last several albums, you already know the outcome. While we all still want that feeling of what it used to be like when Madonna did something that wowed us, we need to start facing facts. But not before we ensure that Madonna’s great-great-great grandkids will have enough money to survive, even if that means we’re going to have to spend a little less on ourselves after we’ve forked over our cash.
And don’t worry, I am not going to get into a diatribe about the Ticketmaster processing fee that varies depending on the cost of the ticket even though all they do is print a ticket and stick it in an envelope no matter what the cost….
Get into the groove?
