Madonna to Become Queen Solomon
According to World Entertainment News Network, Madonna is set to perform a sensational one-off concert in Israel‘s historical King Solomon’s Mine which will be specially filmed for a DVD.
The singer is currently planning a world tour and has scheduled a special concert in the archaeological remains of Timna National Park, north of Eilat, in the Red Sea Desert.
The historic area, which is the world’s oldest copper mine, has witnessed mining since the ancient Egyptians owned Israel 6,000 years ago.
The site is believed to have been the site where Israel’s wise and legendary monarch King Solomon, who died in 926 BC, mined copper nearly 3000 years ago.
Her unusual decision to perform in the country is said to have been inspired by Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie‘s devotion to the Kabbalah, a mystical branch of Judaism.
The singer has been studying the religion since 1997 and credited it with helping her make her 1998 album ‘Ray of Light.’
The “Material Girl” last toured in 2001 with her Drowned World tour. After her 2003 album ‘American Life’ was received poorly in terms of critics and album sales, Madonna is ready to perform again.
Madonna will be the first big name to sing in the park. Relative-unknown French singer Daniel Levi performed there in August last year.
Madonna’s spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, adds the concert is still in the initial planning stages: “Nothing’s definite right now”.
