On November 15 2005, Madonna performed an intimate club show for roughly 1,500 contest winners and guests at KOKO in London’s Camden Town district. The event was held to celebrate the release of her album, Confessions On A Dance Floor.

While roughly 200 fans queued overnight to secure a spot near the stage for the gig, fans around the world were able to enjoy a live stream of the performance online.

VIP guests in attendance included Sir Bob Geldof and his late daughter Peaches, Stella McCartney, Guy Ritchie and Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant.

Madonna’s very first promotional concert in London was held at the same venue – then named Camden Palace – in October of 1983.

One response

  1. The gig at Koko Club in London was a triumph! By playing four soon-to-be Dance/Rock classics from Confessions on a Dance Floor-Hung Up, Get Together, I Love New York and Let It Will Be and a stone-cold classic from The First Album, Madonna came storming and Rocking Back in a big way-and it relegated American Life like its ancestor the Sex Book-to the scrap of history-events that Madonna would just as soon forget about! The future events Confessions on a Dance Floor all the way to Rebel Heart/Tears of a Clown-ensures that controversy will not enter her life anymore-let’s hope so!
