Madonna Madness Hits Brazil Posted by Rachel on Dec 12, 2008 in Entertainment, Music
Madonna arrived in Rio de Janeiro this morning, on the Brazil leg of her international tour, where she will perform several sold-out shows in Rio and São Paulo. She’s currently staying at the Copacabana Palace, where fans have gathered to try to catch a glimpse of the singer. Outside of Maracana Stadium, where the Rio shows will be held, fans are already camped out in anticipation of the first show on Sunday night. Brazilians have traveled from all over the country, spending thousands of reais to see the American pop star.
Madonna brought a production and support team, and has rented seven suites at the Copacabana Palace to serve as a dance studio, kitchens, and a gym. Her complete team includes nearly 1,500 people, and part of her staff will occupy eight dressing rooms at the first two shows, which include imported furniture and decorations used for the tour. Also, Madonna reportedly ordered 10,000 cans of energy drinks for herself and her staff during the Brazilian concerts. She apparently had a long list of demands for each hotel she stays in during the tour, which you can see here.
