Madonna, 2008-09-14 - Parque da Bela Vista, Lisbon

Madonna time "Sticky & Sweet Tour".

Sun, September 14, 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal @ Parque da Bela Vista

After watching Steve Hogarth last September 5 now (9 days after) is time for Madonna. The name of the tour is "Sticky & Sweet Tour".
It was an amazing show in Parque da Bela Vista with Robyn playing before.

Some people (fans) arrived at Parque da Bela Vista 2 days before (Friday).

I arrive there early in the morning (Sunday, day of the show). I had a "Hot Ticket". A special ticket with some presents and the right to get in first.

Here it is a photo when I went to Parque da Bela Vista on "metro":

In the morning when I arrived about 6h40 am I decided to make a list to the Hot Tickets members. Made the list till 12:00 pm on the Box Office where we got our tickets and wristbands. About 60 people.
As soon as we have our ticket and wristband we went to Gate 3 a little on the right of the right regular entrance.

The Hot Ticket was 200 euros (regular price was 60 Euros). We get in 15 minutes early than the rest of the regular people.
By the way in Lisbon they sold 400 Hot Tickets. 400 times 200 Euros = 80.000 Euros.
A curiosity in Wembley, London, 3 days before were sold 1200 HT. 1200 times 200 euros = 240.000 Euros (+ or -).

We had 1 singer before Madonna.

The singer was Robyn. She played for 32 minutes.

Small video I made of Robyn:

Steve Hogarth, 2008-09-05 - Santiago Alquimista, Lisbon

Fri, September 05, 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal @ Santiago Alquimista

After watching for the first time Marillion last July 26 now is the first time also I saw Steve Hogarth live (the voice of Marillion). The name of the tour is "H Natural, European Tour 2008".
It was an amazing little show in a very small place "Santiago Alquimista" in Lisbon. My first time there.
Steve Hogarth played in a piano with his laptop on top. He talked a lot between the songs. He also invited a fan to play guitar in one of his songs.

I arrive there in the afternoon. And saw Steve Hogarth rehearsing.

Finally was time for Steve Hogarth. He played for 133 minutes.

Some videos (6) I made of Steve Hogarth in Santiago alquimista (hope you will love them):
