Moscow ticket swap from Monday
The organizer of Madonna’s upcoming Moscow concert said holders of the 36,000 tickets already sold could begin exchanging them Monday. Vladimir Kiselyov told the newspaper Trud in an interview published Wednesday that the concert would not be canceled as a result of weeks of confusion that ended Tuesday, when the date and venue of the concert were changed.
Kiselyov is general director of a state-owned management company called Kreml, or Kremlin, which is part of the Presidential Property Department. Kreml has emerged in recent days as the lead organizer of Madonna’s concert, now scheduled for Sept. 12 at Luzhniki stadium.
Kiselyov told Trud he had just returned from London, where he met with Madonna’s representatives and discussed security for the concert. Tickets will be verified at four checkpoints at the stadium, and concertgoers will be given special bracelets.
