Reports have been circulating since April that Madonna would close her Sticky and Sweet tour in the UAE, and it now appears likely that she will indeed sign a deal to perform two highly lucrative concerts in Dubai this November. With Madonna still in contract negotiations, the terms of the deal are only speculation, but if the rumors are even close to true, Paul McCartney should be reconsidering his contract to play Tel Aviv for only $3 million. In exchange for only two concerts, expect the Material Girl to earn a lot of material wealth, $25 million to be exact. As of now, no details on venue site or number of available tickets are being reported for the primary concert date, which will earn Madonna around $15 million. For the additional $10 million payment, rumors are circulating that Madonna will perform at a private party for a mystery guest in Dubai.
Concerning Madge’s record-breaking contract, a source noted, “The figure is so big because of her new contract with Live Nation and the huge funds available from private promoters in Dubai.”
According to her website, Madonna will end the North American leg of her tour on November 30 in Mexico City before moving to Argentina on December 6. Reports on the Queen of Pop’s record concert payout claim that she will play her two Dubai concerts in November, to end her world tour. There was no comment on when these concerts will fit into the tour schedule but it appears they would need to occur between November 30 and December 6 or wait until after December 20, when the Sticky and Sweet tour ends in Brazil.
