Madonna Gets Fever After Molly ‘Love Fest’

by Paul Cashmere on March 14, 2016

in Live,News

Madonna replaced her Molly Meldrum “love fest” with ‘Fever’ at her second Melbourne show last night.

On the first night of the Australian tour, Australian music icon Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum was given a spotlight moment when Madonna dedicated her song ‘Take A Bow’ to him.

Molly wasn’t at the second show so the revolving section of the performance changed slightly with ‘Take A Bow’ replaced for ‘Fever’ and ‘Like A Prayer’, dropped from the previous night, was also back in the show.
