Madonna concert booed

2012-07-27 11:11

Paris – 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 yesterday, billed as an intimate event at Paris’ Olympia club, was streamed live on YouTube.

By this morning, the channel showing 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.
