Madonna Thrills Los Angeles With War Show
MADONNA continued her fierce anti-war stance as she kicked off her worldwide RE-INVENTION tour in Los Angeles last night (24MAY04) by performing AMERICAN LIFE in combat gear.
The pop superstar thrilled fans when she opened the show wearing a jewel-encrusted corset, but quickly changed into fatigues for the controversial song, during which she sang against a video backdrop of a war-torn nation, and to the sound of dropping bombs.
The singer also performed past hits like HOLIDAY and VOGUE to thrill fans, who had paid as much as $200 (GBP111) to see her live.
Madonna's Kabbalah faith also played a major part in the show Hebrew text appeared on a giant screen throughout her performance at THE FORUM.
The highlight of the show was an emotional rendition of JOHN LENNON's IMAGINE, accompanied by a video of sick children from around the world.25/05/2004 21:13
