Madonna's Moscow Gig Switched
LATEST: The venue and date for MADONNA's first ever show in Russia has been switched amid fears of inadequate security provisions. Local authorities in Moscow fear students living near the concert venue could fall from their windows while attempting to watch the superstar perform at Vorobyovye Gory on 11 September (06), and have moved the concert to the following day (12SEP06) at the capital city's Luzhniki Olympic complex. Fans have already snapped up 34,000 tickets for the Confessions tour stop in Russia, and the new venue offers even more space. Organiser MIKHAIL SHURYGIN says, "This is excellent news for fans, since Luzhniki has a larger capacity then the location at Vorobyovy Gory. "Luzhniki is also more acceptable in terms of safety."
