Madonna jets in ahead of Tel Aviv concerts
Pop music icon Madonna landed here in her private jet yesterday morning, ahead of her back-to-back concerts in Tel Aviv.
Madonna’s final two stops on her “Sticky & Sweet” tour will take place at Hayarkon Park, tomorrow and Wednesday.
In August, the producers of Madonna’s concerts whet the appetite of fans with details of her show. A stage 18-meters-high was prepared in May, which includes four hydraulic lifts and a 25-meter-long catwalk, which will extend from the stage into the crowd.
Film clips and laser patterns will be screened, and Madonna will be backed by 17 dancers, who will change costumes no less than eight times during the performance.
Madonna’s entourage is expected to number around 200 people by the time of the concert, but the show’s promoters would neither confirm nor deny rumors that some her famous friends, including Justin Timberlake, would be among them.
Tickets left for Wednesday
The playlist for the concert, which will run for exactly two hours and 15 minutes, is expected to be exactly the same as that used at other performances of the “Sticky & Sweet” tour, which began in 2008.
Tickets are completely sold out for the first concert tomorrow, but are still available for Wednesday’s concert.
The concert tormorrow will be Madonna’s second performance in Israel.
She first appeared at Hayarkon Park 16 years ago as part of her “Girlie Show” tour, and also visited Israel in 2006 during the Jewish High Holidays, along with 2,000 other students of Kabbalah.
