Considering the era in which I attended college (late eighties to early nineties), there was no escaping the music of Madonna if you were seeking to do so. Now at the time I was a tried and true Heavy Metal musician but had to admit that I enjoyed a number of songs that the singer offered up and it was without question that she possessed immeasurable talent. Now, some thirty years after I first heard her songs, she is embarking on her “Madame X” tour and this one will hit more intimate theater spaces. Check out the press release below and the run of North American dates.
