Security has been beefed up in Russia for the remainder of Madonna’s concerts.

U.S. citizens are reminded to remain vigilant regarding their personal security, and to be aware of their surroundings at all times, especially in crowded areas.” The singer’s spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, said Madonna was aware of both the threat and the Embassy’s warning. No specific details about the threats have been released and concerts are going on as scheduled.
