Colorado fans upset with Madonna over guns in show
DENVER (AP) - Some Colorado fans are upset after music superstar Madonna used guns during a performance in a community that is still raw from a mass shooting at a movie theater during a Batman screening.
Madonna's second act at her show on Thursday night at the Pepsi Centre in Denver featured the 54-year-old singer using a fake gun to shoot a masked gunman and images of blood splattering on a large screen behind the stage.
She used the set for her performances in other cities for the song Gang Bang, which includes the lyrics "shot my lover in the head."
The scene reminded some concert-goers of the July 20 shooting at an Aurora theater where a gunman dressed in black and wearing a helmet, body armor and a gas mask stepped through a side door and opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle and pistols, killing 12 people and injuring at least another 58, some of whom may be disabled for life.
