The last time she placed her foot in Israel, Madonna performed a two-night performance as part of her Sticky and Sweet concert tour back in 2009. It was a huge success for the Queen of Pop. Nearly three years later, Madonna will once again parade her craft in front of an expected crowd of 30,000 as she formally kicks off The Madonna World Tour in the city of Tel Aviv on May 29th, 2012 (other sources say it will be held in the city of Ramat Gan).
Israeli fans are greatly excited for Madonna’s comeback. So excited that they even urged the Israeli Prime Minister to postpone a war with Iran until after Material Girl’s kickoff concert. In fact, there is a FaceBook fan page dedicated to such case. The fan page is named “Bibi don’t start a war with Iran until after Madonna’s show on May 29.”
The Israeli Government has been in a tense situation with the nuclear-armed Iran and debates of a preventive strike are in progress. While most of the Israeli population is in support of a military action against Iran, it seems Madonna fans would like to have the Queen of Pop hold a concert first before they let loose their bombs.
After Tel Aviv, Madonna is then slated to continue her world tour in two venues in the Middle East: Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and Istanbul, Turkey. After the Middle East leg, Madonna will proceed to do 26 shows in the European continent.
In Other News- Did Madonna take a shot at her ex in new song?
In her latest song titled I Don’t Give A, Madonna looks like she drew some inspiration from her capsized marriage as the lyrics of the song seemed to be aimed towards her ex-husband Guy Ritchie. Madonna and Ritchie got married in 2000 but after eight years of marriage, the couple went to Splitsville, with Ritchie reportedly ending up with $92 million in settlement.
An observer said that the lyrics indeed hinted of the music artist’s experiences with her failed union with Ritchie. Some of the lyrics read:
“I tried to be a good girl/I tried to be your wife/Diminished myself/And I swallowed my light/I tried to become all/That you expect of me/And if it was a failure/I don’t give a (bleep).”
This is not the first time Madonna was expressive with her failed relationships. The music artist wrote some verse detailing her emotions after her failed marriage with Sean Penn, Madonna’s first husband.
