Madonna Malawi Concert Is NOT Happening, Says Org's Web Site

Reports of a music festival featuring Madonna in Malawi are false, the performer said on her web site, Raising Malawi.

Celebrity gossip blog Perez Hilton reported on the show this morning, based on a source at the organization. It now appears as if Perez Hilton was misled.

Madonna's organization posted the following statement on her site:

This past weekend, reports circulated regarding a Raising Malawi benefit concert in Blantyre, Malawi. These reports are entirely false; Raising Malawi and Madonna have no plans to host such an event.

The show was said to be featuring Bono and be in the style of Bob Geldof's "Live Aid" event of 1985.
