Madonna wows 50,000 in Tel Aviv

Wednesday, September 02, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff  

Aging pop queen Madonna performed in front of 50,000 Israelis at Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv on Tuesday in what local media hailed as an electrifying show.

Her stop in Israel marks the finale of Madonna's Sticky & Sweet world tour.

During the show, Madonna apologized for having not performed in Israel for over 16 years, and at one point grabbed an Israeli flag and paraded around stage with it.

Madonna, who is an adherent of a New Age-flavored twist on Jewish Kabbalah, told those gathered that she views Israel as "the energy capital of the world."
