Madonna is reportedly planning to play a huge comeback concert in London next summer.
The singer will perform to 60,000 fans in Hyde Park during the 2012 Olympics and will add more dates if the concert sells out, according to The Sun.
A source said: "Madonna is planning a huge comeback and was determined to do it at Hyde Park while the Olympics are on.
"She's been out of the limelight musically for a while but is ready to jump back into the saddle and thinks there's no better time to do it than when London hosts the Olympics."
The official site for the games - running in the UK capital from July 27 to August 12, 2012 - describes Hyde Park ad the "home to the music, theatre, film and cultural events that will take place throughout the summer of 2012".
The concert will be a part of a series of Live Nation produced events pre-olympics, expected to be announced in December with tickets going on sale then too.
Madonna will perform new single 'Give Me All Your Love' during next year's Super Bowl XLVI on February 5 at the Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis.
The track - the lead single from her upcoming twelth studio album - features rappers Nicki Minaj and MIA and is produced by Martin Solveig.

Kylie Minogue is reportedly making plans to celebrate her 25 years in the music industry.
The singer is thought to have started organising a string of events for 2012 to mark 25 years since her debut single 'The Locomotion' was released back in 1987.
According to The Mirror, the star has started work on her 12th studio album and will allegedly return with "a more orchestral sound".
Along with the new material, the 43-year-old is said to be planning an "all-singing all-dancing ITV1 special" to celebrate her career, which spans over four different decades.
Minogue reached number two in the UK singles chart with 'The Locomotion' back in 1987, while her second cut 'I Should Be So Lucky' marked her first number one hit in the same year.
The Australian performer has since gone on to sell over 68 million records worldwide, as well as selling out a collection of flamboyant world tours.
