Madonna honoured at Wembley

The singer makes her mark in the Square of Fame

Madonna has become the first artist to be honoured at Wembley Arena‘s new Square of Fame.

The singer made her mark by casting her hands in a bronze plate outside the venue prior to her Confessions show last night (August 1), reports the BBC.

Organisers are hoping to honour a series of top performers including Kylie Minogue and Geroge Michael through the Hollywood style feature in the coming months following the venue’s £35 million refurbishment earlier this year.


Madonna said: “It is great honour. I feel like an honorary Brit. I look forward to seeing other artists adding their handprints alongside mine.”

The singer will continue her Confessions world tour with a futher seven nights at Wembley Arena on August 3, 9, 12, 13, 15 and 16.
