Madonna to get USD 1 million for performing two songs
Madonna is set to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel, and it will reportedly cost the organisers USD 1 million
Singer Madonna is set to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel, and it will reportedly cost the organisers $1 million. The superstar, 60, is said to have agreed to make a guest appearance at the annual event which will be held in Tel Aviv in May, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Madonna will perform two songs -- one of her hits and a new track -- in what would be one of the show's most expensive bookings to date, the European Broadcasting Union confirmed to the newspaper Haaretz. The "Material girl" singer will reportedly bring an entourage of 160 people for the show.
It is believed that the singer has already engaged in conflict with the contest's producers because the song she plans to debut contains a political message.
The Eurovision performance would be Madonna's fourth in Israel. The mother-of-six previously performed in the state in 1993, 2009 and 2012.
Madonna, earlier this week, announced the dates for her 'Madame X Tour', a series of intimate performances taking place exclusively in theatres. Additional shows were confirmed just hours after the initial run of dates was announced.
In New York, 12 shows are confirmed at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, starting September. In Los Angeles, nine shows are set at The Wiltern, starting from November. Shows at the Chicago Theatre will take place in October. The 'Madame X' will also be held at Las Vegas, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Lisbon, London, and Paris.
'Madame X' celebrates Madonna's career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences. Singing in different languages including Portuguese, Spanish and English, Madonna collaborated on the album with longtime producer Mirwais, as well as with producers Mike Dean and Diplo, among others.
