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.

En mezzanine, 315 places à 276,5 €, ça fait 87 097 €.
En balcon, 510 places à 166,5 €, ça fait 84 915 €.
En fosse, 1 875 places à 89,5 €, ça fait 167 812 €.
Ce qui fait un grand total de 339 824 € (416 110 USD).
Si la production du concert de Madonna a vraiment coûté près de 1 million de dollars, on peut penser que soit Madonna est vraiment très généreuse avec son public, soit son producteur est un très mauvais gestionnaire.
Les places auraient dû coûter deux fois plus cher pour espérer ne pas boire la tasse…
Mais il est douteux que ce concert de Madonna ait été produit à perte. Je ne vois qu’une explication plausible : Google-YouTube a payé 500 000 $, voire bien plus, pour la retransmission.
Et laissons la Madonne clore la polémique :
Playing the Olympia was a magical moment for me and it was real treat to do this special show for my fans and be so close to them. Unfortunately at the end of the show — after I left the stage — a few thugs who were not my fans rushed the stage and started throwing plastic bottles pretending to be angry fans. The press reports have focused on this and not the joyous aspect of the evening. But nothing can take away or ruin this very special evening for me and my fans. When I looked out in the audience, everyone I saw had a smile on their face. I look forward to having this wonderful experience again.
Thug fags gonna hate…
