TEL AVIV, Israel, May 27 (UPI) -- U.S. pop star Madonna requested producers of her Tel Aviv concert build her children a private pool on the grounds of the concert venue, sources told Haaretz.

Madonna arrived in Israel Friday ahead of the Thursday launch of her world tour, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Temporary luxurious housing, a private pool and game room were constructed on the grounds of Ramat Gan stadium, where the concert will be held, unnamed sources told Haaretz.

Several Israeli Facebook pages have popped up lauding the queen of pop as she settles in for the concert she has dubbed "Concert for Peace," the Post reported.

Avihay Asseraf, who manages what he calls Israel's official Madonna Facebook page, said the fact that the musician is opening her tour in Tel Aviv is monumental.

"People don't appreciate the meaning that someone like Madonna is doing her opening night here. It's the premiere of a tour," he told the Post. "It's a piece of history."
