Madonna to Put on Second Show in Israel Dedicated to Middle East Peace

Queen of Pop tacks on additional Tel Aviv show dubbed 'Concert for Peace' after May 29 show sold out; Madonna invites representatives from various peace groups.

Madonna announced Wednesday that she will be putting on a second show in Israel, in addition to her scheduled May 29 Ramat Gan concert, calling it the "Concert for Peace."

The singer specially invited representatives from peace organizations to the show, and said, "Music is so universal and if there's any chance that through my performance I can bring further attention and enlightenment to honor the peace efforts in the Middle East and help people come together, it would be an honor for me. It is my way of thanking those who are making so much effort toward bringing peace to the Middle East."


Tickets for the first concert sold out within weeks of going on sale. When the first show was announced, Shuki Weiss, producer for the concert, expressed doubt that Madonna would add a second tour date in Israel.

Due to impressive ticket sales, those who missed out on buying tickets for the first show have a second shot at seeing singer on May 31 at Ramat Gan Stadium. Tickets for the second show are already on sale for members of Madonna's worldwide fan club, as well as Weiss' network of friends on Facebook. Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 23rd, at 10:00.
