Madonna concert in Budva
International pop superstar Madonna will hold a concert in Montenegro, the local press is reporting, while on a global tour to celebrate her 50th birthday.
The concert is expected to take place on Budva’s Jaz Beach in either late August or early September, where the Rolling Stones played last year.
The show was agreed upon with Madonna’s management and the Democratic Party of Socialists’ Vice President Svetozar Marović, who advocated bringing the pop icon following last year’s success with the Rolling Stones.
