Madonna Set for Istanbul Concert in June

The moment Madonna fans in Turkey have been waiting for for years may finally arrive next summer.

It is looking increasingly likely that the glittering pop legend will make her first appearance in Turkey in more than 10 years with a concert in İstanbul in June 2012, the Radikal newspaper reported on Tuesday.

If plans to bring the international star to Turkey are successful, Madonna will perform on June 7 at the 52,000-capacity Türk Telekom Arena in İstanbul. The concert will be part of her yet to be confirmed 2012 world tour, which is also expected to see her perform in Abu Dhabi on June 6 and Tel Aviv on June 10.

The queen of pop is currently working on her 12th studio album with California-based live events company Live Nation. The album, which features collaborations with stars M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj, is to be released in the first half of 2012, with a single debuting in February.

A figure widely considered as one of the greatest icons in music, Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world’s top-selling female recording artist of all time by the Guinness World Records. She was included in Time magazine’s elite list of the “25 Most Powerful Women of the Past Century” in 2010.
