Madonna and boyfriend Brahim Zaibat arrived in Istanbul Tuesday night along with a 200-person entourage that included two of her children — son Rocco, 11, and daughter Mercy, 6.

It took three airplanes to transport the pop icon, her crew and the heavy equipment required to pull off a concert scheduled for Thursday at Istanbul's Turk Telecom Arena.

Madonna, 53, and her Zaibat, 24, held hands as they exited their jet and were whisked away by security.
