A third Madonna concert in Spain this Summer?
Spanish newspaper “La Verdad” published an article about negotiations going on between Spanish promoter mec:events the City Council and the Region Government of Murcia to bring Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour in town this Summer.
The date that is being reportedly discussed is the one of July 25 – a Sunday – in a weekend that is still empty in the rather busy schedule of this Summer’s leg of the Tour.
It is interesting to see that the article is accurate about the general information on the tour – they are aware that Madonna is already scheduled to perform in Madrid and Barcelona in July, so if this will materialize it would be the third Sticky & Sweet Tour concert in Spain this Summer.
The newspaper reports that the promoter has presented the Madonna concert as a chance to bring the city of Murcia under the international spotlight and therefore asking for the cooperation and support of the local authorities. This same scheme was successfully employed by mec:events last year to bring Madonna to Valencia, although the cost to bring the show to Murcia this Summer is approximately estimated as half of the one for the concert at the Cheste Circuit last year. The article says that the local authorities do not seem particularly keen on the offer and that the biggest competitor for that date is the city of San Sebastian in the Basque Country.
