(showbiz) - Madonna is set to be paid $25m for playing two gigs in the oil-rich Arab state of Dubai in November, it has been revealed.
One of the gigs - which runs to 90 minutes - will see the the singer pocket $15million - $160k a minute.
The singer, 49, is also in talks to perform at a private party for a mystery fan while she is out there which will earn her another $10million.
A source said: "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 negotiations for the tour to stop in Dubai in November are being finalized and she will get $15million 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."
Madonna signed to Live Nation for $120million last year.
The source added to British newspaper The Sun: "She is also close to agreeing to play at a private party in Dubai, the first in her career."
The singer, who celebrates her 50th birthday later this year, is unlikely to sing her biggest hits 'Holiday' or 'Like A Virgin', though - she said in a recent interview she'd only perform the popular songs for $30m!
She said: "I'm not sure I can sing 'Holiday' or 'Like A Virgin' ever again.
"I just can't - unless somebody paid me like $30 million or something. [Like if] some Russian guy wants me to come to the wedding he's going to have to a 17-year-old, you know it."
Madonna's latest album, Hard Candy, is released on April 29.
