There is speculation coming out of her adopted home of England that Madonna will play the most lucrative concerts of her career, and perhaps of any artist in the history of contemporary music. The proposed deal is two concerts in Dubai, supposedly in November, for a total of about $25 million.
One concert would be for about $15 million plus a private performance for the other $10 million, London newspaper The Sun reports.
A Live Nation executive told TicketNews that “there is no truth” to the Dubai shows and that “all shows are Live Nation.”
Last fall, Live Nation inked a record-breaking 10-year, $120 million mega-deal with the Material Girl, that includes her future tours, records and merchandise.
Live Nation has still not confirmed the next Madonna tour, though the singer is playing a few upcoming shows to celebrate the debut of her latest album, “Hard Candy.”
