Madonna Set List

Madonna was late for the start of her own American tour on Tuesday night, showing up at the Axl Rose-ian hour of 10:30 before a packed house at the Wells Fargo Center.

There were some boos while her fans got tired of waiting for the pop star to appear for a show with an 8 p.m. start time on the ticket, and only a DJ in between. But all was pretty much forgiven by the time she finished off an 1 hour 45 minute set with the one-two punch of the gospel choir powered "Like A Prayer" and pulsing dance workout "Celebration." 


Opening with "Girl Gone Wild" off this year's MDNA. Madonna played around with toy guns, took a cheap shot at Lady Gaga (singing "She's not me!" during an "Express Yourself" / "Born This Way" mash up), stripped down to writhe on the ground while singing "Like A Virgin" as a waltz, and showed off a well muscled back inked with the words: "No Fear."

She apologized for her lateness, saying, "We had so many changes to make from Europe to America, I want the show to be perfect." And she said the three most popular words in pop music right now out loud: "Free Pussy Riot." 

A full review is coming online on Wednesday morning, and in Thursday's Inquirer. Here's the set list:

Girls Gone Wild / Revolver / Gang Bang / Papa Don't Preach / Hung Up / I Don't Give A * / Best Friend - Heartbeat / Express Yourself - Born This Way - She's Not Me / Give Me All Your Lovin' / Turn Up The Radio / Open Your Heart / Sagarra Jo / Masterpiece / Justify My Love (pre-recorded) / Vogue / Candy Shop / Erotica / Human Nature / Like A Virgin / Nobody Knows Me (pre-recorded) / I'm Addicted  / I'm A Sinner / Like A Prayer / Celebration
