The MDNA Tour has received threats of physical violence at a stop in Moscow. Threat news was relayed in an official message from the U.S. Embassy Moscow. As a result, concertgoers should take warning and security will be bumped up.

According to the public release, the concerts that are being threatened are a show on Tuesday, August 7 and Thursday, August 9.

Madonna will be performing at the Olimpiski Arena in Moscow on August 7 and at the Peterburgsky SKK in St. Petersburg on the August 9. Tickets are still available for both shows.

“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,” the release reads.

Though there is no specific mention as to the source of the threats, the release states that the U.S. Embassy and the U.S. Consulate General in St. Petersburg have relayed the information to Russian authorities.

Proper security measures will be taken in order to ensure concert attendees safty.

“Russian authorities have indicated to the Embassy that they are taking appropriate measures in light of this information,” the statement continues.

The statement also urges individuals to “remain vigilant” and “to be aware of their surroundings.”

Madonna's rep has not yet responded to our request for comment about the threats.

In addition to the treats, the 53-year-old pop icon has her fair share of bad luck on the tour. Earlier this month, a semi-truck en route to a show in Sweden crashed and flipped, blocking an entire highway in Europe.
