Madonna's fishy tour
Madonna has bought 100 pairs of fishnet stockings for her upcoming tour.
The 'Give It 2 Me' singer - who turned 50 last weekend - got staff to trawl internet auction site eBay and dance shops for the garments to make sure she has the perfect leg-wear.
She has also requested 100 pairs of knee pads, 12 trampolines and four large freezers of ice cubes to sooth aching muscles for her 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour.
Twelve seamstresses are working to make her costume changes run smoothly during the show.
On top of her extravagant wardrobe, Madonna will also be sporting £500,000 worth of Swarovski crystals.
The diva's 250-strong entourage also includes a chiropractor, a personal trainer and a masseuse, and her dancers have put in an unbelievable 653 hours of rehearsals for the show.
The 45-date tour kicks off in Cardiff, Wales, tomorrow (23.08.08).
Last week, the star's film director husband Guy Ritchie threw a lavish £100,000 party for 90 guests to celebrate his wife reaching the landmark age.
