TEL AVIV, Israel, March 22 (UPI) -- U.S. pop star Madonna says she has added a second show at Ramat Gan Stadium in Tel Aviv to her upcoming concert tour.

The singer has dubbed the May 31 show a "Concert for Peace" and is inviting several peace organizations to honor and acknowledge people seeking harmony in the Middle East.

Details about the participating organizations will be announced shortly, Live Nation said.

"Music is so universal and if there's any chance that through my performance I can bring further attention and enlightenment to honor the peace efforts in the Middle East and help people come together, it would be an honor for me. It is my way of thanking those who are making so much effort toward bringing peace to the Middle East," Madonna said in a statement Wednesday.
