Madonna plays London club show

The star goes back to the first venue she ever played in the UK

Madonna returned to the scene of her first ever UK show last night (November 15) to launch new album ‘Confessions On A Dancefloor’.

The pop supremo wowed an intimate house at the KOKO in Camden, where she last appeared 22 years ago, back when the venue was known as the Camden Palace.

The club was transformed into a throbbing 1980s house club as the crowd of competition winners were treated to a brief set of new songs, plus a special souped-up version of her first-ever single ‘Everybody’.

Madonna, dressed in a purple leotard and black trousers, said: “The last time I played Camden Palace was 22 years ago. I want to tell you that it feels so fucking good to be back.”

Before ‘I Love New York’ she added: “I wanna clear something up. I love London too, if I didn’t I wouldn’t live here. But I love New York because it’s the place I learned to survive. New York is about not taking no for an answer.”

Madonna played:

‘Hung Up’

‘Get Together’

‘I Love New York’

‘Let It Will Be’


In the audience were fellow 1980s dance survivors Pet Shop Boys, plus New Order singer Bernard Sumner.

Madonna‘s ‘Confessions On A Dancefloor’ is expected to be Number One in the UK album charts on Sunday (November 21).
