Madonna is in secret talks to play a gig at New York’s Central Park on her 50th birthday.
The Queen Of Pop will tour the US next year to promote her next album.
And she has been racking her brains to come up with something unique and special to mark her big day. Madonna turns 50 on August 16 next year and though not thrilled about reaching the milestone she knows she won’t be able to ignore it.
My impeccably placed source said: “One of the ideas she loves is to do Central Park on her birthday.
“She came up with it and has been discussing it as a serious possibility.
“She doesn’t like getting older but she knows there’s no way she can pretend her birthday isn’t happening.
“She is planning to kick off a world tour next June in America to promote her new album. Playing at Central Park would be the highlight.
“She sees it as a huge televised event.”?
Simon & Garfunkel famously performed for free to more than 500,000 people in Central Park back in September 1981.
Madonna has a huge connection with the city. She moved there in her rebellious teens, it’s her spiritual home and she performed a song called I Love New York on her last album,
Madge has been in the studio with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake recording the follow-up to global smash Confessions On A Dancefloor.
They have been writing and recording in London and Madonna plans to go back to New York in September to put the finishing touches to it. She’ll then take a few weeks off to be with hubby Guy Ritchie and children Lourdes, Rocco and adopted son David.
The album is scheduled for global release in November.
Madge is also set to put out a 25th anniversary box set next year to celebrate her years in the music business.
Better start saving up now for those tickets one thing’s for sure, they won’t come cheap.
