^Me too!!! Exactly that sequence is my favourite, but starting with Like a Virgin. It's a pity she never released Blond Ambition Tour officially... I only have the Barcelona concert on VHS videotape somewhere..

Haha, I used to watch the Barcelona concert so many times back in the day (in the mature age of, what, 10 or 11 ) that the poor VHS tape became almost see-through. The tape is long lost now (and I don't have a VCR anymore either), but the whole gig seems to be up on Youtube - I think I have to watch the whole thing through some day.
At the moment I'm listening to U2, looking forward to next August and finally being able to stop being jealous (or at least being a little less jealous) to my brother who saw them already on the Zooropa tour and to some old classmates who saw them on the PopMart tour.

Heh, me too! Your tape wasn't of the broadcast with the really annoying commentator, was it? I remember them airing it like that with commentary and then when people complained they aired it again with just subtitles.
And I also watched Truth or Dare pretty much every day for a long time back then.

You too, Kat! So we have a bunch of Blond Ambition fanatics here!
I watched that broadcast you are talking about.. I had just bought my first Madonna record and it was all new and exciting for me. And yep, I remember the annoying commentator! He sounded like a senile man that had forgotten there are women on Earth... Then they replayed it on New Year's Eve with subtitles. Unfortunately I didn't tape that one...
I think I was 14 back then and this was something that literally changed my life. I still think Like a Prayer, Live to Tell and Oh Father are one of the greatest songs ever recorded, and they showed me the type of music I was going to be fan of.
I have a vague memory of the concert having subtitles, but now that you've mentioned the commentator, it sort of rings a bell too... So I guess I watched both versions, but my taping was, luckily, the subtitled one.
This morning I've been listening to my grumpy old Swedish darlings, also known as Kent. <3 Isola and Hagnesta Hill are the best autumn albums ever. (And new album out next week, yay!)
