Madonna & Justin Timberlake played Roseland, watch it

Madonna & Justin Timberlake @ Roseland Ballroom, NYC – April 30, 2008
Madonna & Justin Timberlake

Considering the hassle people went through to get into the show, I think Madonna should have played more than six or seven songs (one of which was with Justin Timberlake), but that’s just me….

Halfway through her 32-minute set on Wednesday night at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan, Madonna offered a message of sympathy.

“All you people I saw sleeping in the street last night,” she said, “this song is for you.”

It was “Hung Up,” about the agony of waiting. And as she finished the song, she added, just in case the message wasn’t clear: “Anybody who knows me knows how much I hate to wait.”

New York may be a city of the impatient, but for Madonna’s fans, Wednesday’s show proved that seeing her for free in a 2,200-capacity hall — minuscule by her usual touring standards — was something worth waiting for. And waiting for a very long time.

The line outside Roseland, on West 52nd Street, formed 60 hours before show time…. [NY Times: For Madonna Fans, the Wait Is Worth It]

People were also paying over $1000 a ticket to scalpers.

The whole show is now streaming online. THIS LINK will launch the video in Windows Media Player. Way more about the show at ‘All About Madonna‘.
