The show will be a stop on her “Sticky and Sweet” American and European tour.

The organizers of the concert announced at a press conference in Hotel Splendid in Bečići that the concert will be her sole performance in the territory of the former Yugoslavia, and that there will be no concerts in Belgrade or Zagreb because her tour schedule is completely booked.

“The concert will be organized just like in other European cities, it is expected to last two hours and the opening group will be singer Robin and some DJs,” spokesman Aleksandar Radios said.

He added that 65,000 tickets will go on sale on July 11. Prices will be EUR 35, 70, and 200 for VIP seats.

Austrian Entertainment representative Richard Hoerman said that there will be 19 trucks of equipment and that the stage will be 100 meters long and 10 meters high.

“We will begin putting the stage together on September 5 and the equipment will arrive six days before the concert,” he said.

Budva Tourism Organization Director Jelena Rađenović said that the list of Madonna’s demands is not final, and that it will be known in about a month, adding that the concert will cost close to the same amount as last year’s Rolling Stones show.

“What's important is that Madonna made the decision personally to play in Budva because she liked the town,” Rađenović said, adding that she does not know the exact date of the star's arrival in Montengro.
