Madonna - Final Night Of Madonna's Mdna Tour Gets Off To Rough Start

The last stop of Madonna's hugely-successful MDNA Tour got off to a rough start on Saturday (22Dec12) after the power generator broke down in the middle of her set.

The Material Girl, who was wrapping up her trek in Cordoba, Argentina, had just launched into a performance of Open Your Heart when the device shut down, cutting off electricity to the venue, Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes.

In a bid to entertain the audience of over 50,000 waiting fans, the quick-thinking star broke into an impromptu routine with her back-up dancers and continued singing using a megaphone.

After 45 minutes, organisers were able to fix the problem and a relieved Madonna took to the microphone to thank the crowd for waiting it out.

She said, "Thank you for your patience, thanks for everything. You have been great."

However, the hitmaker ended the year on a good note - her tour was named the highest-grossing of 2012 after raking in $228.4 million (£142.8 million) in ticket sales.
