Madonna managed to sprinkle some of her fairy diva dust on Israel during her recent tour, calling the Jewish state the world's "energy center," wrapping herself in the flag on stage and even lighting Shabbat candles with first lady Sara Netanayahu."This year was particularly strong, and next year looks to be strong, too. There are lots of newcomer promoters willing to take risks because they are seeing great potential," he said, noting that Israelis are willing to pay top dollar for tickets and thus help the bottom Line. "Israelis are both excited and grateful to see any big names coming to Israel.""We are a normal country where people enjoy music, and performers understand there is a market here for their music," he said. "We are not some crazy corner of the world where everything is upside-down. "
