Madonna to play at Slane Castle?
Speculation was mounting today that Madonna could play her first ever Irish concert at Slane later this year.
It is understood the Queen of Pop is in talks with promoters in Ireland to perform at the annual summer concert in Co Meath.
If the show is confirmed, the American superstar will be the first female to rock Slane Castle.
Madonna has been approached by promoters MCD/Wonderland Promotions in the past, but has as yet to bring a tour to Ireland.
A spokesman for MCD/Wonderland today said it was too early to confirm acts for the concert.
But he did not rule out that Madonna was in discussions with them.
“Various acts are being considered but nothing has been confirmed yet,” he said.
“We never comment on an artist until they have been confirmed.”
Madonna revealed during a television interview last year that she is planning to tour in 2004.
She has not yet announced details of the tour but it is believed she is hoping to stage 32 shows in the US as well as 12 to 15 shows in Europe.
Dance auditions are being held soon in New York and Los Angeles and details are posted on the official Madonna website.
If Madonna does choose to play Slane, she may also take time to check out convent schools for daughter Lourdes.
Earlier this year she revealed she is hoping to send Lourdes to an Irish convent school.
