Madonna fans to get special train in Portugal for concert
Portugal’s state rail operator CP said it would operate a special train to take Madonna fans from northern second city Oporto to Lisbon for the pop superstar’s first-ever concert in the country on September 13.
Return tickets will cost 21 euros (26 dollars), the company said in a statement. The company does not have plans to operate a similar service on the following day when the top-selling singer will close her “Re-Invention” world tour with a second performance in the Portuguese capital.
Only one Lisbon date was originally planned, but a second was quickly added in response to big public demand for tickets.
The self-proclaimed Material Girl kicked off the European leg of her tour, which began in Los Angeles in May, on Saturday with the first of two concerts in Manchester, northern England.
After Manchester the 45-year-old singer is to perform in her adopted hometown of London, followed by appearances in Dublin, Paris, Arnhem in the Netherlands, and finally Lisbon.
