Idris Elba can soon add “supporting act of Madonna’s tour” to his resume. The “Luther” star has been enlisted to open for the veteran diva when her “Rebel Heart” tour hits Berlin on Tuesday night, November 10.
Elba will play a DJ set before Madge takes the stage at the city’s Mercedes Benz Arena. The news may come as a surprise for a lot of fans, but the 43-year-old actor is actually no stranger to performing as a musician. He started DJing long before he’s known for his roles on “The Wire” or in “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” and “Thor” among others. He’s played at various clubs as well as festivals including Glastonbury.
“Rebel Heart” tour comes in support of Madonna’s latest album of the same name. Previously, she had the likes of Amy Schumer and Diplo open the shows in the North American leg of the trek.
