Motorists got an idea of the paraphernalia required to put on a Madonna concert when a tour truck carrying the pop princess's sound system overturned in Sweden today.
The 53-year-old singer is currently performing in venues across Europe as part of her 'MDNA' tour and the truck was en route to Gothenburg in the south west of the country ahead of a show.
At least one person was injured and equipment was damaged in the incident which saw the high-sided vehicle tip on to its side in the fast lane of the highway.

The truck during rush hour, and the crash blocked a significant portion of the road.
Police said three other cars were damaged, and boxes of elecrical equipment were thrown into the carriageway.
It is not yet known if the accident will affect the singer's scheduled show in Gothenburg tomorrow night.

'I suspect that if there was anything serious, we would have had information about it by this time.'
Earlier in the tour, it emerged that Madonna has a 'sterilisation team' who wipe away any DNA in her dressing room after shows on the tour.
Concert promoter Álvaro Ramos, who oversaw the Portuguese leg of her dates, said: 'We have to take extreme care, like I have never seen for any other artist. We cannot even look at the dressing room, after it is ready, or even open the door.
'We can only enter after her sterilisation team has left the room. There will not be any of Madonna's DNA, any hair, or anything. They will clean up everything. In the end it is all to protect her and make her feel comfortable.
'I do understand it, but it is taken to extremes.'
Madonna is due to perform at the Ullevi Stadium on Wednesday night.
The singer, whose career stretches to three decades, has a new album out and her current show is a dancing and sound spectacular.
After her half-time performance during Super Bowl, the release of the single Give Me All Your Luvin, the new album MDNA and Golden Globe-winning film W.E, she is now ready to take over the world with her ninth world tour.
During her phenomenal career, Madonna has sold over 300 million albums and holds the record as the most successful tour as a solo artist ever.
She has won seven Grammy awards as a singer, songwriter, producer, and she is also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
