On stage: Madonna and child

September 3, 2009

Madonna’s son Rocco, who she had with her ex-husband Guy Ritchie, joined her on stage during her final concert in Tel Aviv last night.

He took the stage at the Hayarkon Park venue for the last night of her Sticky & Sweet tour. The nine-year-old danced and sang along with his mother on three tracks.

On Tuesday night Madonna brought out her daughter Lourdes, 12, who danced and played the piano on stage.

The Sticky & Sweet tour is the top-grossing tour by a solo artist, taking $408m (£249.4m) as she played to 3.5 million fans at 85 shows.

Madonna arrived in Israel on Sunday and spent the evening visiting the Western Wall. On Monday she had dinner with opposition leader Tzipi Livni and she is expected to meet Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday.
Although she has not performed in Israel since 1993 she visited the country in 2004 and 2007. She has been practicing Kabbalah for more than 10 years and has adopted the Hebrew name Esther.
