Madonna's manager Guy Oseary has assured fans in Israel it will take an act of war to stop the pop superstar from fulfilling her commitment to perform in Tel Aviv on her 2012 MDNA tour.

Devotees are so worried that tensions in the Middle East will prompt Madonna to cancel two planned shows for Tel Aviv, they have started a petition urging Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu to delay any kind of potential international military action with rival Iran until after the concerts.

But Oseary has assured them that it will take an awful lot for Madonna to scrap the gigs.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "It would have to be really serious, where the lives of people working with us are in danger.

"This woman doesn't cancel anything, she just goes."

And to prove his point, Oseary reveals Madonna is considering performing in some of the world's most dangerous places: "We would love to play Lebanon, Egypt and Syria at some point... Obviously, it's just not possible (right now)."
