A warning has been issued by the U.S. Embassy Moscow and U.S. Consulate General St. Petersburg warning U.S. citizens to be extra cautious if attending Madonna concerts this week.
Madonna’s European leg of her MDNA tour is currently in Russia where she performed safely in St. Petersburg on Tuesday night. But a statement was issued earlier this week warns concertgoers of a threat.
“ The U.S. Consulate General in St. Petersburg has received information regarding a threat of physical violence against spectators and performers at the St. Petersburg concert on August 9. The U.S. Embassy in Moscow and the U.S. Consulate General in St. Petersburg have shared the information with appropriate Russian law enforcement authorities. Russian authorities have indicated to the Embassy that they are taking appropriate measures in light of this information. While we expect that enhanced security measures will be put in place at both concerts, U.S. citizens are reminded to remain vigilant regarding their personal security, and to be aware of their surroundings at all times, especially in crowded areas.”
No word on if there is a specific threat aimed at Madonna, or just Americans in general.
