Citing boredom, a lack of hits, and, with one fan calling it the "worst ever concert," droves of fans checked out of England's Hyde Park well before the end of Madonna's MDNA tour stop.
The show—Madonna's first stop in England in four years—failed to sell out, with tickets available on eBay for as low as $15.
According to the London Evening Standard:
Rick Salthouse, 46, a gym owner from Manchester, said: "It was the worst gig I have ever been to. I've been a big Madonna fan all my life but I will never buy one of her records again."
Alex Tobin, 35, a bank worker from Beckenham, said: "It was a huge disappointment. I didn't recognise 95 per cent of the songs. Most people were bored." His wife Sinead, 35, a doctor, said: "It was OK to begin with but the rain didn't help. It changed the mood of the crowd."
But Adam Cook, 28, from Milton Keynes, said: "She was brilliant but for the casual fan there was not a lot. We went to see her show in Berlin and they went mental, it was the same show." TV presenter Toby Anstis wrote on Twitter: "I can definitely say, that was THE best live show i have ever seen! Mesmerising from start to finish! Amaaaazin!"
Maybe she should've pulled out one of her "gimmicks"?
