Madonna bids 'Sweet' adieu in Israel
Madonna's "Sticky & Sweet" tour will end Sept. 1 in Tel Aviv, the singer announced on her website today. Tickets for the show at the Yehoshua Garden go on sale Wednesday, June 3.
It marks Madonna's first appearance in Israel since 1993. In 2004, Madonna canceled three concerts in Tel Aviv, when she was concerned about security for her children, according to the U.K's Sun newspaper.
The last leg of the "Sticky & Sweet Tour" starts July 4 at London's O2 Arena, swinging through Europe and Russia before ending in Tel Aviv. No U.S. dates are on the docket. The warm-up act is superstar DJ Paul Oakenfold.
The "Sticky & Sweet" tour started last summer, hitting more than 50 cities worldwide to become one of the top-grossing tours of 2008. The tour included three sold-out Madison Square Garden shows and put Madonna in front of more than 2.5 million fans.
