MADONNA stripped down to her underwear and wore a blindfold as she performed a steamy show with half-naked dancers.
The 65-year-old treated her fans to a sexy performance on the opening night of her World Celebration Tour at London’s O2 this evening.
Tonight the crowd watched as the famous singer stripped down to her underwear for one of her dance routines.
Madonna sat on a luxurious red velvet sofa on stage, wearing a blindfold and seductively spreading her legs.
In another number, she performed with topless male dancers wearing boxing gear.
The star wore a red silk and lace mini dress with stockings.
She paired the raunchy look with a pair of knee-high leather lace-up boots with heels.
In the classic pin-up style, her blonde hair was styled into thick curls with lots of volume.
Her makeup was flawless and dramatic, with a smoky bold eyeshadow and a dark red lip.
Scantily clad dancers passionately hugged and touched her in a heartbreaking performance during the show.
Madonna fans had to wait a long time as the tour was originally scheduled to begin in North America in July.
But the start date was postponed twice after she was hospitalized with a bacterial infection in June.
However, the tour was worth the wait: 40 performances, 230 feet of catwalk, 24 dancers and 17 newly designed period costumes.
The show lasts more than two hours and features Madonna’s biggest tracks from her 40-year career, including Vogue, Ray Of Light and La Isla Bonita.
More than 200 people worked on the huge production.
There was a dedicated team working on the clothing for the singer.
At 65, Madonna has put in more effort than ever for the tour, despite being named after her Madame
To keep herself in shape, she took three physiotherapists and three mobile gyms with her on her travels.
Their musical director Stuart Price described the show as a “documentation through her extensive career”.

He became involved in planning the tour nine months ago and said Madonna had “a really well-developed storyline” that “reflects her career, from her time as a young woman in New York and getting to know the scene to motherhood , spiritual awakening and all the ups and downs.”
He continued: “There was consideration of doing a biopic, which gave this tour the potential to have a documentary aspect as well.”
