There\’s a reason for this:
\”People have told me, \’you could just go out there and play guitar and sing your songs like Paul McCartney\’, but I\’d be too bored,\” she says.
\”Most of the joy of the shows is the magic of creating them: theatre. I\’m a perfectionist. I like hard work. I like to sweat.\”
The real point is that Madonna is not either a musician or a singer: she\’s an entertainer. The show, the dancing, the lights and the glamour: that\’s Madonna. At the heart of McCartney\’s appeal is an extremely good musician and possibly one of the all time great song writers.
The reason that Madonna doesn\’t do those sorts of stripped down sets is because she doesn\’t have the voice, the songs, the skill or the talent to carry them off.
