Madonna "DJs" while son Rocco breaks it down, Yankee Stadium 9/6/2012 (via)
Madonna at Yankee Stadium

Nobody knows better than Madonna that size matters. So it's no surprise that her new "MDNA" tour gained some extra oomph from Thursday's blown-up stadium version at Yankee Stadium...

...Even the one time Madonna spoke to the audience at length she had a sober "message." She spoke of touring the world and "seeing people being locked up and put in jail for speaking their minds, for being gay, for not practicing the right religion."

It inspired in her a renewed patriotism. She said she "realized how lucky I am to be living in America. We're free."

...Of course, the whole show was hardly a singing-dancing representation of Madonna's angst, philosophy, and leftover anger at ex-husband Guy Ritchie. With pluck, she dolled herself up as the world's oldest drum majorette in "Express Yourself."

...Here, Madonna took a deserved jab at Lady Gaga by blending her '90s hit with one by the younger star that rips it off, "Born This Way." - [NY Daily News]

Madonna played Yankee Stadium last night (9/7) and she's the first woman to ever headline the place. She'll do it again Saturday (9/8), and has a show at Madison Square Garden on November 12 -- both those shows are sold-out. However, Madge has just added another MSG show on November 13 with Martin Solveig opening. Tickets go on sale on Friday, September 14 at 10AM via LiveNation with an Icon Lifetime Legacy Member presale beginning 9/10 at 10 AM, a CitiCard presale on 9/10 at 3 PM, and a Livenation presale on 9/13 at 10 AM. That's a lot of presales!

In between the hits last night, Madonna took time out to show support to both Barack and Michelle Obama and there's video of that below, along with her Yankee Stadium setlist. Meanwhile, the object of Madonna's "Express Yourself" jab (see review above), Lady Gaga, is touring soon too.

Updated Madonna dates, plus Yankee Stadium setlist and video are below.

Are there really this many idiot people who want to shell out money to see this old hag in a stadium? Only good sign of hope is that there were so many cheap tickets being sold this week. People could not give these away.

Having said that, it is gonna be fun to watch her kids over the next few years. The son is gonna be fucking every starlet/female rock star/model and the daughter is gonna be the fucktoy of every hot actor/male rock star/model

@anonymous - really?! i sincerely hope you have no children and never have any.

Posted by whatever | September 7, 2012 11:44 AM

It amazes me that people still like this hag.

@11:48 Nice. The kind of loser who wants to go where many many many people have been before.

setlist is shit, just like this tired lady.

I really need to stop reading the comments on this blog.

Glad she still has Pussy Riot's best interests in mind.

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 12:04 PM

The music is bad enough, but she has to go and endorse the empty suit in the WH to boot. Why don't these celebs just sing and leave the politics alone?

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 12:06 PM

people got totally scammed by false initial ticket prices - wow, these are going at 40% face value now. I hope she dropped the prices for the 2nd MSG show

Madonna is completely irrelevant. And so is Obama. So they are a matched pair of fail. They deserve each other.

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 12:26 PM

The joke is on these obscure losers who are still convinced that there are somehow people out there that even remotely give a fuck about what celebrity endorses whom. Time to find a new "career".

^and people say Wilco is dad rock? So Madonna and Wilco should tour together amirite?

nice try 12:06/12:26/12:44 aka NEO-CON TROLL.

wonder how you'll survive when Barack Hussein Obama is resoundingly re-elected in November.

as chris rock says, THEN Barry's "gonna go all gangsta" on y'all and ram some REAL liberal policies down the throat of conservative amerika.

hope you choke.

2:39 is absolutely right, as scary as that is. Obama's Marxist agenda will come out in full force in his next term. Stock up on guns, food and hone your survival skills. We got a rocky road ahead of us.

LULZ @ 2:39
Child, do you even know what a "neo con" is, more or less how those posts ascribe to that category? Go ahead, tell us all about it.

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 2:55 PM

2:39 is the CRAZY EYES LEFTIE TROLL!!!!! Back again for more mental beat-downs.

Haven't you figured out yet that you never win at this game, Charlie Brown?

lets get this back on track....Madge is old with stupid kids

where be da dude who posts conservative stuff and anti hipster stuff from his secret lair on Staten Island?

dude talking about the children being fucktoys, damn man, wtf are you talking about?

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 4:02 PM

i cannot believe i wasted my time and money to see her! she did not play any of her music that made her popular, she should have shut her mouth about her political position as i did not pay for that and i cannot believe the crowd did not cheer for an encore - i guess enough is enough!

Posted by anonymous | September 7, 2012 4:51 PM

She's the most successfully and biggest selling female artist of all time you can not like her but her longevity has never been done in music before. The show is AMAZING ( I was there last night) and the place was PACKED and people were loving it! How can people call her irrelevant when there commenting on this Madonna post not to mention the fact that the tour will be the years highest grossing and highest attended which proves that she is very relevant. Gaga katy perry rihanna bieber or beyonce couldn't sell as many tickets as she does so she's onviously still in high demand. A little respect please for the most successful solo recording artist of all time who DIDN'T die of a drug overdose(Michael, Elvis )

Posted by anonymous | September 7, 2012 6:14 PM

^ You are a complete idiot with terrible taste. Furthermore we all know you are not a regular reader of this site but probably a loser Madonna troll who saw this on a message board and are coming here to defend the old hag.

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 6:18 PM

6:14, there's still time for Madonna to die of a drug overdose, especially if botox becomes fatal

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 8:27 PM

What kind of example are we showing when shooting someone in the head that is called Violence their is no reason for that everyday people are dying because of the use of Guns in America!

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 8:35 PM

for that kinda $, she should be focusing MUCH more on the 80's. i would never shell out for a singer like this w/o seeing a setlist first.

Yeah I just showed out 268 fucking dollars to watch the Giants loose to the fucking Cowboys plus 600 plus on the hotel room plus 80 on gas, and you motherfuckers wants to complain about Madonna STFU, that's worse, the mofos that attend her concert already know what they are getting since its been on youtube. The defending SB champs goddamn it, fuck you all, yall just complaining over that GAGA bitch, I waisted money on the NY Giants game, now that's some bullshit, and I hate the cowboys!!

Posted by MsLittx | September 9, 2012 1:12 AM

She rocked! All of u who felt u wasted your time and money, stay home on your butts, where u belong! I would like to see u do a show like she does. The best body on a 53 year I have ever seen!!!

What a way to celebrate New Year's Eve. Listening to the music of Dive makes you want to do the opposite. Their music relaxes out thought processes and makes us, well, relax.
