Madonna’s Tears Of A Clown Show: 10 Images From The Intimate Melbourne Gig
It’s been 23 years since Madonna gyrated on stage in Australia — when her Girlie Show tour went Down Under in 1993. To make up for lost time, the Material Girl gave a special late, late nigh performance, dubbed Tears Of A Clown, at Melbourne’s Forum, on Thursday (March 10).
Madge hit the stage some time around midnight, reportedly leaving fans stuck outside standing in rain for hours. It didn’t seem to matter — the pop queen tore through her biggest hits and songs she rarely performs live, such as “Take A Bow” and “Drowned World/Substitute For Love.”
“She made her entrance on a tiny tricycle, dressed in a clown-like outfit of yellow swing tunic and pink and white striped stockings,” writes the Sydney Morning Herald. The paper summed Madonna’s Tears Of A Clown gig up as “a combination of relaxed insight, frank reflection and some seriously daggy gags.”
Check out fan photos and video of Madge clowning it up below.

I can’t believe the things I’ve seen her do today. Songs I never in a million years thought I’d hear her do live. Showing the rawest of emotions on stage and completely letting down her guard to be vulnerable and human in front of an audience. Never underestimate the queen #Madonna #tearsofaclown #rebelhearttour #australia
