Madonna switches Moscow concert to Olympic stadium
Mon Aug 28, 2006 11:57am ET

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Organizers on Monday switched the venue for Madonna's Moscow concert from a hilltop site overlooking the city to a Soviet-era stadium used in the 1980 Olympic Games because of crowd control fears.

Police said they feared up to 250,000 people may try to get into the concert -- Madonna's first in Russia -- which had space for only 35,000. They had wanted it switched to an airfield on the outskirts of Moscow.

After a weekend of talks with officials, organizers agreed to stage the show at the bigger Luzhniki stadium, built in the 1950s in parkland on the Moskva River. Spartak Moscow soccer club plays its home matches at the stadium.

"The concert is due to take place on September 12, at Luzhniki. If nothing extraordinary happens, I think everything will be okay," Vladimir Kiselyov, general director of the company organizing the concert, said on Russia's Channel One television station.

The concert had originally been set for September 11.

Well, there are orthodox Russian Christians who would be very offended by an imitation, or even mockery as they may perceive it, of Christ.
Personally, I think Madonna is just doing it for the sake of controversy - it has no relevance to the song she's singing, and it doesn't make a statement other than "Look at me, I'm playing Jesus on a cross with thorns on my head!"

it makes a statement about religious leaders, and the pope n all that crap...
i cant remember how though.... but it does.... lol i'll av to ask one of the fanatics... but i think it may be like aids in africa could be stopped if the pope, and the catholic church accepted condoms, and contraception, therefore all those children wouldnt be orphaned and alone

she is so desperate for attention it's pathetic. She did the whole 'offend christians' stunt in the 80's. We're bored! Go away and write your books :yah:

And how does pretending to be Jesus work towards this goal? In no way at all. It'll only enrage people, not make them think.
I agree with tha_mattster - she did the whole religious controversy thing before with Like A Prayer, get a new act! What if she insulted her own religion, Kabbalah??!

Why should she be bothered about her own Religion ?
I doubt she'd mind to be honest. But she isnt really pretending to
be jesus is she, shes doing it to raise awareness.

If everyone ignored her she would just go away. I don't mind her, but her attempts at causing controversy are getting pretty old hat. She should just spend more time with her kids, it's not like she needs the cash.

I don't think its 'raising awareness' either...

There are other ways to do that.

I think she should retire... and soon! Or at least adapt - she's getting on, and no-one wants to see her aging flesh squeezed in a leotard.
And her acting was really bad, have you seen her cameo in James Bond?! lol

I personally believe that Madonna's an old, washed-up, attention whore and should just be forgotton.

i think it's in bad taste, but freedom of speech y'know. she's just doing it for attention and sadly it's working
