Will Madonna answer prayers of fans with show in Edinburgh?

madonnalicious reader Scott was interviewed for this article from The Scotsman about a possible Scottish date in Edinburgh on the tour:

She’s the world’s top-selling female recording artist and probably the biggest superstar never to perform in Scotland.
But now – if mounting rumours are to be believed - pop icon Madonna is set to put that right with a barnstorming concert at Murrayfield this summer.
The Material Girl could make her Scottish debut in the Capital as part of a tour to promote her 12th studio album MDNA, which is due for release in March.
Grapevine gossip suggests the 53-year-old will take to the Murrayfield stage on July 21, although no tour dates have been confirmed.
News of a possible date broke online yesterday, but neither the Scottish Rugby Union, which runs Murrayfield Stadium, nor Beverley Hills-based events company Live Nation, which represents Madonna, would confirm or deny the speculation.
Live Nation would only say that 'there would be something later in the year'.
One self-confessed Madonna superfan in Edinburgh, Scott Anderson, 34, who has watched the US songstress in concert 14 times, said she could sell out Murrayfield Stadium several times over.
'I had heard rumours that this might be happening,' he said.
'I think it’s about time she would play in Scotland and thought there might be a chance because she got married here. She often does play in places where she hasn’t been before and will be guaranteed a sell-out here – she could probably do a couple of nights.'
'I hate to think of the money I have spent seeing Madonna over the years but it was worth it every time.'
Councillor Steve Cardownie, Edinburgh’s festivals and events champion, said securing a Madonna concert in the Capital would be a 'huge coup'.
'If this is true, this is fantastic news for the city,' he said. 'Madonna is the superstar which all the rest try to emulate and if she comes to Murrayfield it will be a sell-out and another feather in Edinburgh’s cap.'
'People will travel from all over Scotland and elsewhere. She is the queen of pop.'

It will certainly save me a lot of money lol plus will avoid the London Olympics nightmare, but as every tour has had a similar rumour I'll believe it when I see it.


Ticket sales for 'Sticky and Sweet' in Cardiff were so utterly disastrous compared with 'The Confessions Tour' (official figures are readily available) that it is highly unlikely that M will play Cardiff again. A venue outside of London is always a brilliant idea, so Edinburgh would be a good choice.
