Madonna: Yankee Stadium, Bronx NY

Iman Lababedi, Rock NYC, 7 September 2012

AT THE MIDWAY point of Madonna's lousy Yankee Stadium set Thursday night, she hectors the exhausted audience like a shrewish old maid, on the use of freedom in a consumer society. We have so many freedoms, she intones with an uninspiring, self evident rhetoric, rattling off the usual suspects, before scolding us: "DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT take this freedom for granted or you will lose it in a second... Are you with me New York?"

No, in fact I am not with her.
