Madonna reportedly to launch world tour in Israel


JERUSALEM (JTA) — International pop star Madonna reportedly will launch her new world tour in Israel.

The concert tour for Madonna’s new MDNA album will begin May 31 at Ramat Gan Stadium near Tel Aviv, The Jerusalem Post reported Sunday, in advance of her Super Bowl halftime show.

Fan websites have been publishing the rumor since late last year.

Madonna twice has performed sold-out shows in Israel, including the last performance of her "Sticky and Sweet" tour in 2009. She also has visited Israel with her children as part of her devotion to the study of Kabbalah.
