Like a Sprayer
16:30 11 September 2006
Madonna's upcoming Moscow concert is to stay dry thanks to Russian weather boffins - who plan to spray the sky to stop it raining.
Rain has been predicted in the Russian capital tomorrow (12.09.06) - the day of singer's at the Luzhniki Stadium.
Worried organisers have now made arrangements for the grey clouds to be "spiked" by 10 planes spraying rain-inducing chemicals which will make them release their water before they reach Moscow.
The chemical treatment, which was originally developed to keep the Red Square rallies dry, was recently used for the G8 summit.
Madonna is not the only pop star to use the sky spraying system to keep her fans dry.
Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney used the same method to guarantee dry weather when he played in Moscow in June 2004.
