Madonna has hired more than 400 specially trained personal bodyguards after receiving death threats according to media in Serbia and Romania.
The start arrived at the concert in Serbia in disguise just three hours before the concert after rescheduling to minimise her stay in the country because of the threats -- according to local media. She also cancelled plans to stay a local hotel and left Belgrade right after the concert.
Local newspaper "Press" said Madonna had arrived on a flight from Budapest three hours before the Belgrade show and had been " disguised so that she would not be recognised."
It added that Madonna had supposed to arrive a day earlier but then she had been told it was not safe and had changed her plans to make a visit there as short as possible.
In Bucharest in Romania local media said that the nervous star had engaged 400 specially trained bodyguards to protect her after her arrival later today (Tuesday) and before the concert tomorrow (Wednesday).
There will also be 1,300 policemen on duty when the concert takes place in Parcul Izvor, near the Parliament building.
Madonna's request for specially trained security guards follows on from an earlier demands that the ceilings of the backstage rooms be covered with white silk and be filled with 500 white and red roses prior to her performance in Bucharest.
The diva's 34 close staffers include two personal fitness coaches, a therapist, an interior decorator and an Italian chef. The star has asked for a massage room, a hydro-massage shower stall and a gym. All fitness equipment and interior-decoration items are being sent to Bucharest.
Two days before her first concert in Bucharest this Wednesday, most of the staff has already arrived and are making last-minute preparations for the concert where tickets cost between 30 and 200 Euros.
Madonna's 26 August concert will be part of her "Sticky & Sweet Tour."
