turned into a sea of pink cowboy hats and feather boas as thousands of
Madonna fans arrived for the opening night of her world tour.
They came from across the world to see their heroine perform at the Millennium Stadium, with those from Wales itself proud the star had chosen their country to debut the show.
Jones, 35, from Abercynon, South Wales, who was attending her third
Madonna show with daughter Roxanne, 17, and niece Rosie Williams, 12,
said: "This is great for Cardiff, and all of Wales.
"It's marvellous she's made it to 50 now and she's still going. As long as she keeps on doing the shows, we'll keep on coming."
Newell, 20, from Swansea, said: "I can't believe that she's only
playing in Cardiff and London, out of everywhere in the UK - I'm really
pleased about it. It's good to have Wales recognised."
worker Suzanne Alwan, 37, from Swansea, said: "I've been a fan since I
was 13. This is the first time I've seen her live, so I'm really
excited. I like her old stuff, but it's Madonna - it doesn't matter
what she sings, it's fabulous just to see her."
