Madonna's new album is expected to be released on March 2012. Its first single will be released in the beginning of the year.

The concert tour, which will be launched immediately after the album's release, will be sponsored by Smirnoff Vodka under the banner, "Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange." As part of the cooperation with the brand, a contest will be held between 50 countries asked to select a dancer to present the country's culture and nightlife.


Israel is among the 50 participating countries, and Madonna is expected to cooperate with an Israeli dancer. However, the contest does not guarantee that the singer will perform in each of the countries the dancers come from.

Meanwhile, Ynet has learned that talks are being held to bring Madonna back to Israel. According to a source associated with the international production, the requested date is April 2012.


Madonna's last concerts in Israel were produced by Shuki Weiss together with international concert manager Marek Lieberberg, who will also be in charge of the singer's next tour.


The Queen of Pop performed in Israel on September 1-2, 2009, in two concerts which concluded her Sticky & Sweet tour.


Shuki Weiss' office declined comment.
