What seemed to be an eternal waiting has finally come to an end, and it was not in vain! The most popular and most admired pop-star in the world arrived in Moscow. At the age of 48 and on the 24’th year of her musical career Madonna stepped on the Russian soil for the very first time in order to present her “Confession of a Dance Floor” to thousands of adoring fans. The long-awaited day has arrived. Despite the protests from the Russian Orthodox Church leaders and death threats from anonymous ill-wishers world’s sexiest and most scandalous singer will perform in “Luzhniki.”
Actually Mrs. Louise Ciccone was expected in the capital on Sunday together with her husband and children. But contrary to the expectations the dear guest arrived Monday by herself. Apparently she left Guy Ritchie, Lourdes and Rocco in London. Her flight’s time and place of arrival were kept completely secret until the last minute. In the end the place turned out to be airport in Vnukovo-3 and the time - last night.
Moscow greeted the ungodly musician with a heavy rain. A special ladder was ordered to the plain to protect the lady from getting wet. But practical Madonna came fully prepared for the surprises of mysterious Russia . She came out dressed in warm hooded jacket with bits of fur. Her face was adorned with the sunglasses of course! She looked happy, smiled and waved at the photographers.
Even before her flight had arrived Madonna was presented with a list of hotels where she could stay for the night and a list of clubs and restaurants where she could spend her evening. From the first list the singer chose “Ararat Park Hyatt,” and the magnificent “Audi” (Madonna’s favorite car) took off in the direction of her hotel choice. There Mrs. Ciccone was warmly met by a crowd of fans and an entire security squad. However, once she has rested, the pop-star decided not to attend any clubs or restaurants. Instead she headed down to the exhibition of her good friend – the photographer Steven Klein.
Meanwhile the fans are leading the countdown to the cherished moment. Madonna’s performance will be preceded by Paul Oakenfold. But the fans are willing to put up with the guy for the sake of their dream. And besides this famous DJ’s visit in itself is a great musical event.
As for those who care nothing for the pop-music or for its Queen, they can only expect trouble from the upcoming concert. If last night the price had to be paid by the drivers, today it’s the pedestrians’ turn. Due to Madonna’s performance the subway station “Vorobiovi Gori” is going to be closed for the entire day. From 9:00am until midnight all the trains will be passing through the station with stopping.
