Madonna calls Olympia show ‘magical’
U.S. pop star Madonna says her recent concert at the Olympia theater in Paris was a “magical moment” and those who booed her there were “a few thugs.”
The singer made headlines July 26 when some audience members turned on her, demanding their money back and calling her a “slut” after she wrapped up her show after 45 minutes.
The concert was added to her tour schedule last week and sold out in hours. Tickets sold for between $99 and $345 for the limited seats.
Although some concertgoers groused about the price of the tickets given the length of the show, Madonna posted a statement on her official Web site Monday offering her point of view.
“Playing the Olympia was a magical moment for me and it was real treat to do this special show for my fans and be so close to them. Unfortunately, at the end of the show — after I left the stage — a few thugs who were not my fans rushed the stage and started throwing plastic bottles pretending to be angry fans. The press reports have focused on this and not the joyous aspect of the evening. But nothing can take away or ruin this very special evening for me and my fans. When I looked out in the audience, everyone I saw had a smile on their face. I look forward to having this wonderful experience again,” the singer said in her statement.
