Colo. Fans Blast Madge Concert

Madonna’s recent use of a fake gun during a performance at Pepsi Center in Denver apparently irked some fans.

Concerts on Madge’s current tour include a segment where the singer shoots a masked gunman while images of blood splatter appear on a screen behind the stage. 

But for a community where 12 people died and another 58 were injured when a masked gunman entered a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” and opened fire in July, the images just didn’t sit well. 
Mile High Sports Radio Denver personality Peter Burns said the people around him began murmuring when the song “Gang Bang” began. The song includes the lyrics “shot my lover in the head.”
“You could see people kinda looking at each other,” Burns said. “I heard the word ‘Colorado,’ you know, ‘Aurora,’ ‘shooting.’ You could hear people talking about it and it was a little bit unsettling.”
Another fan had a similar reaction.
“We’re dancing and all of a sudden people start realizing what the song was,” said one concertgoer. “We all just stood there. Everybody who was around me all had shock on their face. I heard of a lot of ‘wows.’”
In a statement before the beginning of the tour, Madonna noted she does not condone the use of guns, “rather they are symbols of wanting to appear strong and wanting to find a way to stop feelings that I find hurtful or damaging” she said.
