Continuing our celebration of International Women's Day (last Friday, March 8th) and Women's History Month, today's track list begins with a few videos from some of my favorite and fierce female artists: Pink, Beyonce and Madonna. And last Thursday, I was able to attend Madonna's (Four Decades) The Celebration Tour at the Forum here in Los Angeles. And what a show it was! Madonna did not disappoint! She even brought Kylie Minogue up on stage to sing a couple of songs together! So cool. Bob the Drag Queen was the evening's host/MC and he was amazing. And I believe Madonna brings up a guest judge for the Vogue portion of her show each night. For us that night, it was actress Ali Wong. What a great night! And I was so fortunate to be able to share the evening with my good friend, former spin instructor and current DJ, Jeremy Blacklow! To be able to experience Madonna's incredible show on the eve of International Women's Day was a testament to her ferocity, her willingness to stand up for what she believes is right and for the fight for and defense of everyone's civil rights. This is my first Madonna concert but I was able to see her perform a "mini" concert at World Pride in New York City in 2019. I was also lucky enough to attend the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City in 2019 where Madonna was honored with the Advocate for Change Award presented to her by Anderson Cooper. So thanks to Jeremy for helping make this happen! Thanks to Madonna for being who you are and for all that you do! And thanks to everyone that takes part in the Ride with Tommy! I was so happy to be able to share even just a little bit of Madonna and my other favorite artists with just a little different and fun take on it in the form of a "battle of the sexes" type of track list. But it wasn't anything close to a battle. Just as Madonna's tour is named, it was a celebration. And as I've said many times, there is always something we can celebrate. Today and this month, I am so happy and excited to celebrate women. So let's celebrate and Ride with Tommy! every Tuesday morning at 9:00am at Crunch - West Hollywood! I hope to see you there!
