Nothing can stop the Queen of Pop from entertaining her fans as Madonna proved during her recent Glasgow gig.
On Sunday night Madonna was performing the last show of the European leg of her Rebel Heart tour when something rather unexpected happened: the power went out. But, instead of letting the darkness at the SSE Hydro Arena spoil her performance of her classic hit “Holiday,” Madonna proved that the show must go on — and go on it did.
Taking to the stage, Madonna performed the most epic acapella version of the song in a baby pink Christmas hat. And luckily for us (who would have loved to have been there but weren’t), the whole thing was captured on YouTube.
Madge later took to Instagram to share a picture from the concert which she captioned with, “We don’t stop till its over Glasgow! Don’t try to silence the Queen #rebelheartour. (sic)” And judging by the comments on the post, fans are very impressed with Madonna’s refusal to let a little thing like no electricity stop her.

“What a show….spectacular…loved it,” freeboy33 shared. While another fan shared similar sentiments writing, “Had such an amazing time last night u showed Glasgow an amazing time and the went on as the say even after the plug being pulled @madonna #amazing xx. (sic)”
You are the reason for the concert! You are the queen ! No body should stop anything ! Congratulations for the greatest concerts, (sic)” georgepera gushed.
Initially reports suggested that the venue cut the sound after the concert started late and ran long — something which many fans mentioned on Madonna’s Instagram post — but, according to an SSE Hydro spokesperson, that was not the case.
Speaking to The Scotsman, she said, “Madonna finished the agreed set and then chose to come on for another song. By that stage, all the power and control equipment had already been disconnected by the production teams. I would stress that this was not a venue decision.”
