Madonna's concert in Warsaw can be cancelled

Polish concert of the legendary singer Madonna, which is planned to be held in Warsaw in August on the 68th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, is in jeopardy.

The famous American singer, songwriter, producer, dancer, actress, director and screenwriter Madonna has a very special reputation and is widely known for her undisguised provocative shows. Thus, "Sticky and Sweet" performance of the singer in Warsaw has caused huge controversy in the Polish Catholic Church due to the coincidence of the concert date and the day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin.

Madonna's concert is planned to be held on August 1 at the National Stadium in Warsaw. On this day Poland will celebrate the 68th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising against the Nazis, when the Polish capital was ruined and more than 180,000 civilians were killed.

Veterans and active Catholic groups, who criticized Madonna’s show, where she is mocking of Christian symbols and sex, handed a protest note to the event organizers - Live Nation and the city authority - with the requirement to change the date of the concert.

It should be noted that despite the efforts, the main goal of the activists - changing the concert date - was not achieved. However, just before the performance the audience will be shown 150 second movie about the consequences of the Warsaw Uprising.

Despite the compromise the government in Warsaw expects further protests.
