London, Apr 18 : Pop queen Madonna is set to sign what may turn out to be the most sumptuous deal of her career - performing a double gig in Dubai for a whopping 12.5 million pounds.
Madge is on the verge of finalising negotiations on a deal of two performances for her upcoming tour in the oil-rich Arab state in November.
The superstar will be pocketing 7.5million pounds for one gig and if it extends to 90 minutes, it will fetch her almost 83,333 pounds per minute.
To top it all, the lady is close to agreeing on performing at a private party for a mystery punter in the city earning another 5million pounds.
"Madonna is about to break another record by playing the most lucrative concert of her whole career - or anyone's career for that matter," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.
The source added: "The negotiations for the tour to stop in Dubai in November are being finalised and she will get 7.5million for the one show only. The figure is so big because of her new contract with Live Nation and the huge funds available from private promoters in Dubai."
In fact, last autumn, the pop sensation signed to the company for a massive 60million pounds.
"She is also close to agreeing to play at a private party in Dubai, the first in her career," added the source.
Madge recently said in an interview that she wouldn't settle for anything less than 5million pounds for performing at a private bash.
The 49-year-old singer's new bosses at Live Nation will soon be roping in other massive bands to sign similar deals.
