'Following her performance at the Superbowl, we can finally announce the third massive concert planned in Florence this summer. The Boss will be at the Stadium on 10 June, Radiohead are playing at the Cascine on 1 July and we can now confirm that Madonna herself will be giving a concert at the Stadium on 16 June!' The announcement that pop icon Madonna will be playing at the Artemio Franchi Stadium was made official by Mayor Renzi on facebook.
Madonna, who very recently had the honour of performing at the American Superbowl, will be in Florence on 16 June - 2 days after her concert in Milan.
Her lastest video, Give Me All Your Luvin' with M.I.A and Nicki Minaj, was released just a few days ago. Fans must now wait for tickets for her Florence concert to go on sale.
The last time that Madonna performed in Florence was back on 6 September 1987 as part of her 'Who's that girl?' Tour. On that occasion, 60 thousand fans flocked to the Franchi Stadium to see her sing.
