It’s been 25 years since we’ve had the Material Girl live and in the flesh — and strangely enough, it appears she hasn’t aged a bit.

“It’s been a long time, Minnesota,” Madonna said to a roar of screaming fans. “It’s been too long, Minnesota. Sorry it took me so long to come back.”

The show’s open had a running theme — almost a storyline — about Madonna’s journey straight to h-e-double hockey sticks. Her bloody and at times, overly violent, rendition of “Gang Bang” seemed to be her shock-and-awe moment of the night — complete with guns a’blazin’ and giant, graphic blood splatters on ceiling-high monitors.
