Madonna in Cut-Rate Concert
Madonna will be paid her “lowest-ever” fee for her Sticky & Sweet concert in St. Petersburg on August 2nd, the concert’s promoter said Wednesday.
“It will be the lowest fee in the whole history of Madonna” PMI Corporation president Yevgeny Finkelshtein was quoted by Russian agency RIA Novosti as saying. “She will really receive a smaller sum, but she wanted to come to St. Petersburg herself.” Finkelshtein did not give a figure for the fee.
Madonna will be performing on Paratroopers Day, a notoriously rowdy holiday when servicemen usually gather on Palace Square. “They may be moved to the Field of Mars”, Finkelshtein said. Reports also said that access to the adjacent Alexander Park will be closed the day of the event and also parts of the famous Nevsky Prospect will be shut for security reasons.
50,000 tickets will go on sale March 16, costing from 2,000 rubles ($55).
