Cardiff kicks-off Madonna’s sticky & sweet tour
21st August 2008, 12:16 pm By Principality Stadium
Madonna, currently putting the finishing touches to her fabulous new Sticky & Sweet Show in Cardiff, is readying herself and the 250 travelling personnel for the opening night this Saturday at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.
Hot on the diamante shaped heels of her phenomenally successful ‘Hard Candy’ disc, ‘Sticky & Sweet’ promises two pulsating hours of non stop hits in a show that features 16 dancers, a 12 piece band, more than 8 costume changes for the lady herself and £l million of Swarovski crystals.
The audience is taken on a rock driven dancetastic journey that’s broken into four sections:
Pimp: A mashed up homage to 1920’s deco and modern day gangsta pimp. Madonna makes a grand entrance dressed by Givenchy.
Old School: Madonna tips her hat to her early 80’s downtown New York City dance roots with flashes of Keith Haring and the dance culture vibe of the time including the birth of rap.
Gypsy: A VIP trip to La Isla Bonita infused by the spirit of Romanian folk music and dance. A tour de force.
Rave: Far eastern influences emerge all sparkly and sporty.
‘Sticky & Sweet’ kicks off this Saturday August 23rd at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium. The tour hits London’s Wembley Stadium September 11th.
The Sticky & Sweet Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring.
