Fans complain about Madonna’s use of guns in Denver concert
Dallas is her next stop.
Some Colorado fans are upset after music superstar Madonna used guns during a performance.
Madonna, who plays at Dallas’ American Airlines Center
Saturday and Sunday [UPDATE: the Saturday show was canceled], started her show Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver with a gun scene, which she has used in previous performances.
A TV station received several calls Friday from concert-goers saying they were offended she used guns and violence as part of her show in light of recent events in the state that included a mass shooting at a theater during a Batman movie on July 20 that left 12 people dead.
In a statement before beginning the tour, Madonna said she does not condone the use of guns. She said she is using the guns as symbols of intolerance and “the pain I have felt from having my heart broken.”
