Watch Madonna play ‘I Love New York’ for the first time in 15 years as she kicks off US leg of ‘Celebration’ tour

Madonna played ‘I Love New York’ for the first time in 15 years as she kicked off the US leg of her ‘Celebration’ tour in the city.

Unlike the electro version of track, which featured on her 2005 album ‘Confessions On A Dancefloor’, the Queen of Pop’s version at the Barclays Center last night (December 13) saw her perform a guitar driven version of the song. You can view footage below.

Paying tribute to the city where she started her career she told the crowd: “It’s so great to be home… I mean that in a way that only New Yorkers know.

“New Yorkers can identify with just-not-giving-a-fuck motherfuckers. We do shit our way. New York is not for little pussies who sleep.”

Similarly to her UK and European tour, Madonna played a host of hits from her back catalogue including ‘Into The Groove’, ‘Like A Prayer’, ‘Hung Up’, ‘Vogue’ and ‘Ray Of Light’ before wrapping up the show with ‘Celebration’.

Reviewing her tour’s opening show at The O2 in London, NME awarded it five stars and said: “The whole thing is a thrilling reminder that Madonna isn’t just a pop star, but also a cultural force who genuinely changed the world by chafing against what society expects from women in the public eye. That’s something worth celebrating in the dazzling, dynamic and at times slightly discombobulating way she presents it here. Really, you wouldn’t have her any other way.”

During her final night of European tour at the venue, Madonna invited Stella McCartney up on stage during ‘Vogue’.

Madonna’s New York setlist was:

‘Nothing Really Matters’
‘Into The Groove’
‘I Love New York’
‘Burning Up’
‘Open Your Heart’
‘Live To Tell’
‘Like A Prayer’
‘Justify My Love’
‘Hung Up’
‘Bad Girl’
‘Human Nature’
‘Crazy For You’
‘Die Another Day’
‘Don’t Tell Me’
‘Mother And Father’
‘I Will Survive’
‘La Isla Bonita’
‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’
‘Bedtime Story’
‘Ray Of Light’
‘Bitch I’m Madonna’

She will continue her US tour in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn tonight (December 14) and Saturday (December 16) before moving on to Washington.

Meanwhile, Madonna is strongly rumoured to be headlining Glastonbury 2024 after festival boss Emily Eavis posted on social media from the opening of the ‘Celebration’ tour earlier this year. Other rumoured headliners include Coldplay, Foo Fighters and Dua Lipa, while Eavis revealed back in March that Glastonbury had booked one of two planned female headliners.
