Madonna projette un concert de charité style 'Live Aid' au Malawi.
By Lara Gould 25/07/2010
Madonna is planning a huge Live Aidstyle charity concert in Malawi which will be shown on TV around the world.
The 52-year-old Material Girl singer has called in favours from showbiz friends including U2 frontman Bono to perform at the Walk Out of Poverty gig in September.
A source at her Raising Malawi charity said last night: "Plans are in place to make this the biggest fund-raiser the world has ever seen."
More than 60,000 fans will get free tickets for the concert at a stadium in Blantyre, poverty-stricken Malawi's largest city, but TV rights and merchandising will rake in millions.
The source added: "Madonna is throwing everything into it. She knows the bigger the event the more money will be raised."
The star adopted two Malawian children, Mercy, five, and David Banda, four. She has a daughter, Lourdes, 13, and son Rocco, nine, of her own.
