Talk about a pretty penny for Madonna tickets... She wonders why she can't fill seats..

Madonna drops shocking new album art for Madame X featuring topless model with a rose piercing her nipple... as 'disappointing' tour ticket sales have 'devastated' the pop queen

Quote:
For an October 7 concert at the 2,100-seat BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, more than half of its $357 mezzanine seats were unsold as of Tuesday afternoon, according to Ticketmasterís map.

In fact, Madonna's opening night at the MET in Philadelphia on Saturday, December 7, Ticketmaster shows that there are more than 400 tickets up for sale.

A source close to the pop queen told Radar Online that she 'doesnít understand why her fans are not coming to support her new shows.'

1976 was the year they had the single release of the Beatles' original. Not really sure why it happened that way, but FWIW I do remember it got a lot of airtime that year. I spent 6 weeks in Chicago that summer and to this day I associate that song with riding the El. It seemed like I was constantly hearing it every time I was walking to the train or riding it.

I saw Gordon Lightfoot on May 23. His voice was hardly shot on that date.

Smile Billy & Bruce

Bruce Springsteen is another favorite.

I missed Billy's concert (where Bruce came and played) by 2 days - it was the 100th concert in MSG.
Should have known.

Love both of them.

I remember that! I always wondered about it. I remember when it was released in the summer of 1976 and it was a good song. The music of that period always brings me a very nice and warm feeling.

I love Gordon Lightfoot. One of my favorite songs of his is one of his (I think) lesser known songs - Summer Side of Life.

He lost quite a bit after his health issues whatever it was 15 or so years ago. Was in a coma for weeks.

I always liked "Did She Mention My Name". When I saw him a few years ago I saw where he sang it on occasion. I got lucky and he opened the show with it.

A cover version, I don't recall the artist, was released in 1976. I may be mistaken.

Ney. The 1976 radio play was the original 1966 Beatles version released as a single. It was included on a Beatles compilation album called "Rock 'n' Roll Music, released that year. Apparently the song was not actually released as a single in 1966. That fact surprised me.
