Liz Rosenberg releases statement after the “MDNA à l’Olympia” controversy

Yesterday Madonna performed at the historic Olympia for an intimate gig during her MDNA Tour. The night ended with dozens of fans booing Madonna.

We already covered this news item, but now Madonna’s publicist Liz Rosenberg has released a statement to the media…

Madonna’s Paris club show was planned as her heartfelt thank-you to France, which she expressed at the start of her show. Despite a grueling concert tour, she desperately wanted to perform for her fans in an intimate setting at the historic Olympia as a means to honor her love for French artists, French cinema and a tribute to France’s long history of welcoming and inspiring artists, authors, painters, poets and minorities from other countries over the years.

The show was not billed as her full MDNA concert and tremendous effort was made to keep the ticket prices reasonable ($100 for 2,000 floor seats) and keep them strictly for her fans.
The show cost Madonna close to a million dollars to produce. She has done a handful of club dates in the past and they were never more than 45 minutes. And by the way, she put on a fabulous show, which was streamed for millions of fans around the world.

So there you have it.
