I wasn't able to see Madonna's "Re-Invention" tour this summer, so I was really looking forward to the upcoming CBS special... Unfortunately, I just got an e-mail that said the deal fell through...
Madonna - CBS Concert Deal Falls Through (c) The Associated Press
Even Madonna doesn't always get what she wants. A deal for the pop diva to show a tape of one of her concerts on CBS has fallen through.
Madonna wanted the special to air for more than two hours and be commercial-free, said CBS entertainment spokesman Chris Ender. The network wasn't willing to give up more than two hours of its prime-time schedule and insisted on commercials.
CBS had expected to tape the special somewhere during Madonna's European tour. Concert specials have become increasingly popular for broadcast networks.
A call to a representative for Madonna was not immediately returned.

Man Janet...her tix were $300 a pop!! They were going for a GRAND here (broker price) for front row...when Cher's go for around $400 (broker price)...$85 list.
I couldn't afford it either..and really wanted to go after Yvette told me she did a lot of her old songs! So...I entered Paul and I in a VH-1 Contest...and HE WON! That concert rocked! We got the DANCE PIT! She was really awesome...loved her old stuff the best!! But I have to admit...her new stuff rocked too!!
