Organizers confirm Madonna’s Moscow concert

Comments

The organizers of Madonna’s Moscow concert have confirmed that the U.S. pop singer’s show in the Russian capital will take place on September 12.
“Any reports claiming that the singer is canceling her concert in Moscow are not true. The singer wants to go to Moscow,” one of the concert organizers Mikhail Shurygin told a news conference at the Interfax central office on Friday.
“Both the singer and the city [authorities], the organizers have done everything possible to guarantee [the singer’s] arrival and to ensure that the concert is held at the due level,” he said.

Archbishop criticises Madonna concert

Comments

Cardinal Miloslav Vlk, the archbishop of Prague, today criticised the upcoming concert by US singer Madonna as “unacceptably insulting to religious people.”
During the upcoming concert, Madonna will at times hang from a cross and wear a crown of thorns. “In doing this, she makes fun of the faith and abuses Christian symbols,” Vlk told the news agency CTK. He said he would refrain
from judging the show’s artistic merits.
“As a Christian, for me this show is absolutely scandalous,” he said. Madonna is to appear in Prague on September 6 and 7.

Madonna gigs ‘rake in 80m dollars’

Comments

Madonna has proved that she still has it, after raking in an estimated 80 million dollars for thirty-two US concert dates.
Currently on the European leg of her “sold out” Confessions Tour, Madonna will be heading off to Tokyo and Osaka, Japan in mid-September, to perform four more shows.
According to Billboard Magazine, Madonna’s previous tour, the 2004 Re-Invention Tour, was the most successful tour that year.
As expected, she is the reigning concert queen again this summer.
The Orange County Registrar comments on the upcoming American tour, saying: “It very likely will be the pop spectacle of the year.
“A politically charged combination of Cirque du Soleil, performance-art commentary and dance-party explosion that more or less sums up everything she has been striving to say and show this decade.”
And with critics and fans claiming that this is her “best production ever”, the lucky people who managed to snag the tickets which sold out within minutes can expect a dazzling show.

Dutch minister can’t ban Madonna mock-crucifixion

Comments

The Dutch justice minister has rejected a call by a Christian party to stop Madonna staging a mock-crucifixion in concerts in Amsterdam.
Minister Piet Hein Donner said he understood the concerns of the SGP party which asked the minister to prevent Madonna performing the scene in concerts on Sunday and Monday, but said only a court could take action against the show.
“It is understandable that Christians feel offended by the crucifixion act that Madonna performs,” he said in remarks posted on the SGP website. “It is a reprehensible way to attract attention at the cost of the deepest feelings of many people.”
“That does not mean that this act can be classified as blasphemy,” he said. “Judgment over whether the event in question constitutes blasphemy is not up to the justice minister, but up to prosecutors and ultimately a judge.”
The youth wing of the Christian party, the SGP, said they were deeply disappointed by Donner’s response and said they would launch a suit against Madonna for blasphemy after her concerts in Amsterdam, part of her worldwide “Confessions Tour.”
“The SGP youth wing regrets that the freedom of expression is declared as being so holy that insulting the Son of God is part of that freedom,” it said in a statement.
The Vatican accused Madonna of blasphemy and provocation when she staged the mock crucifixion in Rome last month.

Win Madonna’s ‘Pimped Ride’

Comments

Superstar Madonna has donated her ‘pimped’ van from her ‘Sorry’ video for a London radio station competition. The Material Girl’s boring white van was madeover into a ‘Discomobile’ during an episode of MTV UK show Pimp My Ride, which is hosted by BBC hip-hop DJ Tim Westwood. In one of the sequences of her Sorry video, Madonna and her female pals pick up men off the street and force them to dance for her in the plush purple nightclub-on-wheels. London station Kiss FM is asking listeners to enter their Crack The Code competition in a bid to win the singer’s van.
