I remember the very first time I ever heard a Madonna song. It was 1985 and I was in my living room. My uncle and his new girlfriend were over for a visit and she put a tape in the cassette player. It was Madonna singing "Lucky Star". As a teenage girl I was blown away and became an instant fan.

Who was this girl who wore loads of bracelets, necklaces with crosses, tulle, leggings and sneakers? I needed to know more and so I bought her album "Like a Virgin".

Over the years I have listened to Madonna as she has evolved...some of her music I have loved, some not so much, some of her crazy antics I have thought "hmmmm" while other times I have thought "You go girl". I have always thought I would love to see her in concert.

Yvan and I are big music fans - and love to see live shows - so when the opportunity to go see Madonna in concert came up - well we jumped at it! We are flying out to Vancouver at the end of October where we will get to hang with my Momma and go see Madonna in concert! Yeow! I am so excited and best of all - my Momma Joe is coming to the concert with us!!!! Seriously my mom rocks!

As a way to keep my mind off the ever-climbing ticker to our baby - I have added a ticker counting in reverse to Madonna - thanks to Ricki for the idea :)

I've never been a Modonna fan... but I'm sure you'll have fun! Right now escaping to a concert sounds great... I love that you've got that reverse ticker going.

I like the idea of a reverse ticker as at least for that one, you have a definitive end!

P.S. Madonna is the first cassette I ever bought!

Madonna is a legendary performer I would love to see in concert before she retires. I know you're going to love that concert.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Madonna in concert. I had all her albums as a teenager. I feel the same as you. Some of her music hasn't been for me.
