Madonna concert on Palace Square: She sang communist anthems?
« on: August 23, 2009, 05:28:58 PM »
Just before Madonna's concert on Palace Square August 2, 2009 in St. Petersburg she received a letter from a communist group asking her to sing revolutionary songs  on the historic Palace Square, a pivotal location during the October Revolution of 1917.
They wrote, "You must understand the responsibility of singing in such a place," the Communists of Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, a separate organization from the much larger Communist Party, said in a statement.
"You should be dressed modestly, sing melodically, and keep the rules of morality in mind."
"We ask you, Madonna, to include in your repertoire on Palace Square revolutionary songs in honor of those who stormed the Winter Palace."

I wonder what Soviet songs she might have sung on her Sweet and Sticky tour ... Human Nature, Miles Away, Ray of Light, Give It 2 Me ...

Here Madonna is doing the Lenin pose dance step!

Maybe she is singing these quotes from Lenin:

"It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed."

"No amount of political freedom will satisfy the hungry masses."

"One man with a gun can control 100 without one."

Vladimir Lenin

Paul McCartney had the move before Madonna

Paul McCartney had the Lenin move down in 2003 when he made the first Beatle concert in Russia. Back in the U.S.S.R. the Beatles were popular but they never made it to Russia despite some urban myths about a secret touchdown in Tobolsk to perform secretly.
