Another bad review for Madonna's show

Disco, most assuredly, is not dead. Not anymore. But too much of a good thing was exactly what killed disco the first time. That's something that Madonna, judging from her show Tuesday night in San Jose, apparently didn't learn. The problem with disco was never a lack of fun. Nearly 30 years later, it can still be a hoot. All one had to do was watch the dancing crowd loving Madonna at San Jose's HP Pavilion on Tuesday night. No, the problem with disco was that it got so fun, there was just way, way WAY too much of it. Which takes us to Madonna's "Confessions" tour, which pulled into HP Pavilion Tuesday night for the first of two shows. A Madonna concert is usually one curveball after another; a big, well-planned production peppered with thoughtful moments. The mix of material is usually enough for old and new fans alike. There's enough tongue-in-cheek humor to soften the indulgences in ego. It's usually an excellent concert by someone who's almost never accused of being boring. Tuesday got boring, ironically because Madonna was working so hard to not be boring. Tuesday wasn't a concert. It was a loud, throbbing disco party, with Madonna as the centerpiece in the pink-purple Olivia Newton John "Let's Get Physical" leotard. Maybe boring isn't the right word. Maybe irritating is a better description. [MercuryNews]

    It is showing. She lives across the ocean, comes over here, and bashes our country.

    She looks like an 80 year old dressing up on Halloween.

    I love seeing her ego burst.

    Hmmm...people bashing Madonna...yawn. It's been - what -23 years of this bashing/defending her? I guess like Madonna, it never gets old.

    When she is irritating some people, she is pleasing others. To each his or her own.

    I think she is unstoppable, and I LOVE IT!
