”Material Girl” Coming To Tel Aviv
The grass at Jaffa’s Bloomfield stadium is used to being stepped on by soccer players, coaches, referees and excited sports fans. But this coming September, it will be trampled on by a genuine international star in what is expected to be an almost historical visit.
The legendary Madonna, who will be coming to Israel as part of her world tour, preferred the grass at the soccer stadium to that at Hayarkon Park, and has decided to hold her Israeli concerts at the stadium.
Guy Ritchie, Madonna’s husband and manager, was supposed to land in Israel this week to check out the stadium and confirm it as the location for the concerts. For personal reasons, Ritchie has delayed his visit until next week. Madonna’s Israeli producer, Shuki Weiss, has already hammered out the details with the managers of the Sports Center which manages Bloomfield Stadium. Weiss has already toured the facilities at Bloomfield a number of times and is perfectly satisfied that the stadium fulfills all the necessary requirements.
The huge stage the singer uses in her concerts will be set up between gates 7 and 8. Most of the audience will stand on the grass, but there will be seating up in the balcony. Some 16,000 tickets will be sold for each performance.
The Sports Center management has confirmed that Madonna will perform at Bloomfield Stadium. They say it’s a dream come true that Madonna will perform there.
