Madonna wants to reinvent pop tours
Los Angeles, Sept 18: Singer Madonna says she is exploring the idea of doing a show that doesn’t travel the world, but stays in one place and is more intimate.
Back in 1990, Madonna set the template for modern pop concerts with her Blond Ambition world tour. From its hydraulic stage to Jean-Paul Gaultier’s iconic costumes, it raised the bar for stadium-sized spectacle.
Now, after seven world tours, the star says she is “exploring” a smaller-scale show in the future. “I’ve done so many shows and tours in stadiums and sports arenas that I feel like I have to reinvent that now too. I like doing intimate shows and being able to talk directly to the audience,” said the singer.
“This is something I’m exploring the idea of doing a show that doesn’t travel the world, but stays in one place and utilises not only humour and the music in a more intimate setting, but other people’s music, as well, and other entertainment,” she adds.
