Two hours in Madonna’s Golden Triangle

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Madonna brought her MDNA concert to Boston last night, and whatever you think about her and her singing (or lack thereof), girl knows how to throw a party (spectacular spectacular, from Moulin Rouge, might be a more fitting description).

I was supposed to sit as close as my $250 ticket would get me, and for a while, waiting for Madonna to come out (an hour after the scheduled start time, as it turned out), I enjoyed the view from my seat.

A woman walked by handing out Golden Triangle upgrades. A couple sitting on the opposite aisle. Three people sitting on the floor in front of my seat. And then, the lights down, the music already starting, I got the woman’s attention, told her I was at the show alone, and that I was a big fan, and I asked if she had any more upgrades. Which she did.

And so I left my seat, walked the length of the Garden, and entered the Golden Triangle, an area in front of the stage with plenty of room to move. From here, I enjoyed the show, which I think was my favorite of the three Madonna show’s I’ve seen (2oo6, in the upper section with Holly; and 2008, against the stage, thanks to a press pass). And the show was better not just because I was so close but because her spectacular spectacular, even during the slow numbers, never failed to impress.
