Subject: Madge's multi-million gigs

Written By: Philip Eno on 04/18/08 at 2:16 pm

Madonna is set to give her bank balance another boost with a £12.5 million contract for just two gigs in Dubai.

The Queen of Pop is rumoured to be sorting out a deal that will mean her forthcoming world tour draws to a close in the Arab state, and she rakes in the cash.

A source told The Sun: "Madonna is about to break another record by playing the most lucrative concert of her whole career - or anyone's career for that matter.

"The negotiations for the tour to stop in November are being finalised and she will get £7.5 million for the one show only .

"She is also close to agreeing to play at a private party in Dubai, the first in her career."

Basic calculations suggest that Madonna will earn around £80,000 a minute if the gigs come through, which means a nice £320,000 for her latest single 4 Minutes, out now.

Not surprised.  There is so much middle-eastern oil money in Dubai that anyone or anything can probably be sold for the right price.
