Madonna faces backlash after short Paris show
AFP – 27/07/2012

PARIS — Madonna was on the receiving end of an angry backlash from her fans on Friday for ending a Paris concert after just 45 minutes.
With the Internet awash with criticism of the US pop queen, tweets posted by disappointed fans included: "Madonna branded a slut and booed in Paris," and "Only 45 minutes for 200 euros a ticket."
The angry reaction was in sharp contrast to the enthusiastic cheers which greeted Madonna when she exited the stage at the Olympia theatre after barely three quarters of an hour on Thursday evening.
The 2,700-strong audience remained in place, expecting an encore, and the mood turned sour as it became clear that the 53-year-old diva was not coming back.
Videos posted on YouTube showed angry fans shouting "refund".
"Not even 10 songs, no thank you and no goodbye," one spectator told AFP. "We came up from Montpellier (in the south of France) and paid 180 euros a ticket. It's a bit steep."
The Olympia concert was Madonna's second controversial appearance in the French capital this year.
Last month she appeared at the Stade de France and angered the far-right National Front by projecting an image of party leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika superimposed on her forehead.
The National Front has said it will sue the American over the incident.

A short Madonna concert that the pop star said was intended to celebrate France's tolerance instead tested it, drawing boos and cries of "refund!" when she left the stage after just 45 minutes.
The show on Thursday, billed as an intimate event at Paris's Olympia club, was streamed live on YouTube.
By Friday morning, the channel that showed the event disabled comments and had more than 12,000 dislikes compared with 10,000 likes. An invitation to tweet about the show appeared to backfire - audience members used the suggested hashtag #MDNAParis to complain.
The concert was announced after France's far-right National Front threatened to sue Madonna after the singer showed a video at a Bastille Day concert in Paris with an image of the party's leader with a swastika on her forehead.

Madonna was booed when she ended her set at a small Paris concert after just 45 minutes on stage.
There were also cries of "Refund!" when the Queen of Pop wrapped up the show on Thursday.
The concert, billed as an intimate event at Paris' Olympia club, was streamed live on YouTube.
By Friday morning, the channel that showed the event disabled comments and had more than 12,000 dislikes compared with 10,000 likes.
An invitation to tweet about the show appeared to backfire - audience members used the suggested hashtag (hash)MDNAParis to complain.
The rebroadcast of the show cuts off when Madonna leaves the stage, apparently before the crowd realised the concert was over.
The show was announced after France's far-right National Front threatened to sue Madonna after the singer showed a video at a Bastille Day concert in Paris with an image of the party's leader, Marine Le Pen, with a swastika on her forehead.
"I've heard that a certain Marine Le Pen was upset with me," Madonna told the crowd, according to the newspaper Le Parisien. "It's not my intention to make enemies."


Short Madonna concert gets boos from Paris crowd

PARIS (AP) — A small Madonna concert that the pop star said was intended to celebrate France's tolerance instead tested it, drawing boos and cries of "refund!" when she left the stage after just 45 minutes.
The show Thursday, billed as an intimate event at Paris' noted Olympia club, was streamed live on YouTube. By Friday morning, the channel that showed the event disabled comments and had more than 12,000 dislikes compared with 10,000 likes.
An invitation to tweet about the show appeared to back fire — audience members used the suggested hashtag (hash)MDNAParis to complain. The rebroadcast of the show cuts off when Madonna leaves the stage, apparently before the crowd realized the concert was over.
Madonna's press agent, Liz Rosenberg, said in a statement that the star's occasional club shows in the past "were never more than 45 minutes."
The show was "planned as a heartfelt thank you to France which she expressed at the start of the show," the statement said, and the performance at Olympia, a venue for top French artists, "was her way 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 cost Madonna nearly $1 million to produce, the statement said, and keeping the prices at $100 involved a "tremendous effort."
The show was announced after France's far-right National Front threatened to sue Madonna after the singer showed a video at a Bastille Day concert in Paris with an image of the party's leader, Marine Le Pen, with a swastika on her forehead.
"I've heard that a certain Marine Le Pen was upset with me," Madonna told the crowd, according to the newspaper Le Parisien. "It's not my intention to make enemies."
