Final night of Madonna's MDNA Tour gets off to rough start

The last stop of Madonna's hugely-successful MDNA Tour got off to a rough start on Saturday after the power generator broke down in the middle of her set.

The Material Girl, who was wrapping up her trek in Cordoba, Argentina, had just launched into a performance of "Open Your Heart" when the device shut down, cutting off electricity to the venue, Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes.

Find: Does Madonna smoke?

In a bid to entertain the audience of over 50,000 waiting fans, the quick-thinking star broke into an impromptu routine with her back-up dancers and continued singing using a megaphone.

After 45 minutes, organizers were able to fix the problem and a relieved Madonna took to the microphone to thank the crowd for waiting it out.

She said, "Thank you for your patience, thanks for everything. You have been great."

However, Madonna ended the year on a good note --her tour was named the highest-grossing of 2012 after raking in $228.4 million in ticket sales.

here is how to effectively rate "Miss Thing" -first off summer and concert tours in particular sell out-a greater portion of concert goers are not fans of the music but like to go to concerts as a hobby, hence which is why Madonna who is portraying herself to have a fan base like no other, cannot seem to get them to see her films. W.E. cost 29 million to make and grossed $890,000. It lost 28 million bucks. Where were her fans? Superbowl halftime viewed by 111.5 million people, Madonna sales declined the following week . Nielsen (look this up) claims her M.D.N.A. record had the sharpest decline in its charting history. She went certified gold in Oct 2012 according to the R.I.A.A only catch is it was for 512,000 copies of the album, 185,000 of which were given to concert goers as an incentive in ticket bundles, thru Ticketmaster.

.Madonna treats her fans like crap? She lined the pockets of Mitt Romney and Bain Capital and she made him whom is the individual that denounced gay culture wealthier as he owns Live Nation/Clear Channel and Warner Music Group, she made them millions of bucks, and they support the Church of Mormons-LOOK IT UP.. Also look up Bill Clinton and  DOMA. Madonna uses gay culture for nothing but money and could care less, notice her show consists of her subjugating gay men onstage, she is a mockery. Also remind you if you go to Google and enter the words "Many Artist Madonna Stole From" in a search engine it will pull results starting with a website designed for her plagiarisms and showing side by side images and that's only what's on the site. There is another site telling which songs she ripped off and what songwriters wrote what. Do people beleive that Lady Gaga who is on the same label as "Miss Madonna" wasn't promoting negatively and retarding gay fans into a frenzy of sensationalism? And go to the site suggested and think to yourself, "Madonna rips artists off for 30 years, this Lady Gaga copycat  publicity stunt must be a joke" (played on innocent, eager and trusting gay consumers and uneducated fashionistas)

You think the negative comments about madonna are untrue? Well just come live in her Hollywood neighborhood and actually see her in public some days.  She has a attitude towards everyone. She thinks she is something special. I wish she would move away so we don't have to put  up with her.
