From Liz Smith:
AT AmFAR's fund-raiser at the Chelsea Pier honoring the gay community for its energetic anti-AIDs fight, the rousing auction produced a bid for ,000 for a bit part in TV's Queer as Folk and another ,000 for four rare VIP tickets to Madonna's coming N.Y.C. concert.

Following Madonna's spectacular opening in Barcelona, the technical stage figurations have now been determined. The sightlines for the Drowned World Tour now mean that a limited number of excellent seats have become available for all six London shows at Earls Court July 4, 5, 7, 9, 10 and 12.
FOR A WHILE it seemed we'd been cut off from our Madonna-like dark roots. We couldn't discover a thing to report about the newlywed dynamo. But here's some hot skinny.
Madonna dominated the stage in Barcelona, Spain, over the weekend as she kicked off her first live tour in eight years. Nearly 18,000 fans sang along with the superstar at the Palau St. Jordi on Saturday and again Sunday before she moved on to Milan, Italy, as part of her Drowned World Tour. The 42 year-old Material Mom emerged onto the stage front wearing a short kilt with a slit on each side over long leather pants. During the show, she appeared as a geisha, a cowgirl, and a modern dancer. Always emphasizing sensuality, Madonna's dizzying movements and provocative swaying triggered screams of pleasure from fans. Besides performing songs from her recent Ray of Light and Music albums, Madonna also sang a Spanish version of the track What it Feels Like for a Girl, and older favorites such as La Isla Bonita and Holiday, the hit that propelled her to stardom almost 20 years ago. The artist will conclude the European leg of her tour July 12 with the last of six concerts in London. A sold-out three-month U.S. tour begins with two shows July 21 and 22 in Philadelphia.

The BBC is to celebrate Madonna's forthcoming run of UK dates with a documentary called There's ONLY ONE MADONNA that will be screened on July 4. This coincides with Madonna's first UK gig on her Drowned World Tour, at London's Earl's Court Arena. A BBC spokesperson says the show, will chart her influence on style as well as her impact on girl power and her involvement with gender politics.
