What a night! What a performer Madonna is!

Madonna’s concert during her MDNA tour

Queen of Pop Madonna visited the Netherlands with her much talked about world tour called MDNA, and  I was there too with Mark: we were some of the lucky ones who won two Golden Triangle tickets.

We’ve bought some very expensive VIP Tickets months before, and we could win Golden Triangle tickets standing in line, hours before the concert. I freaked out when I found out we won (thanks to Mark) cause you have the best spot at the Golden Triangle!

My girl and founder of Organice Your Life® Lonneke Engel was visiting the Netherlands, and was invited by her long time friend & Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary. She also had tickets for the Golden Triangle, so I was very pleased we could watch the concert together!!!! Guy’s and Lonneke’s friend and magician David Blaine was also there! It was so nice to meet David & Guy in person!

The whole show was an energetic rollercoaster! It all happened around us, and sometimes you didn’t know where to look! At one point some drummer boys (during the song “Give Me All Your Luvin”) were flying above us in the sky. It felt so surreal!

Madonna’s speech

One of the best moments of this show was her beautiful speech. Madonna explained what the song “Saggara Jo” was about. It’s about smashing apples, and she talked about the deeper meaning of the song.

So Madonna loves apples too! We also do, here @ Organice Your Life®!

It’s so great how she talked about smashing prejudice, smashing discrimination, smashing judgement, and how she supported people who are different!

“Thank God for people who are different! That is what makes the world go round”

She doesn’t have to say this, she doesn’t have to talk about it, but she does. So that’s why I say: thank you, Madonna!!!

I’ve made this illustration, after this incredible evening:
