Madonna may have been around for a long time but she still knows how to shock. Her Tel Aviv gig saw her take to the stage wielding an AK 47 rifle on the first night of her world tour.
The Israeli capital has been plagued by violence for a long time, as there are often clashes between Jewish and Palestinian residents. A watching fan said “Given the problems this seemed tasteless and designed to create controversy. It was pretty sick and plenty of the audience were not impressed with the guns.”
Madonna defended the gesture from the stage, saying "if there is peace in the Middle East, there can be peace in the whole world." She was joined on stage by her son Rocco during the gig.
