LOS ANGELES (AP) — Idris Elba is co-starring with Madonna on stage — not screen.

The actor-musician will be the opening act during her “Rebel Heart” tour stop Tuesday at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Berlin, Germany.

The “Luther” and “The Wire” actor is also a DJ, rapper and producer who has performed at several clubs and festivals in England and Ibiza.

Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” tour launched last week in Europe and will make stops in 11 countries before returning to North America and moving on to Asia, Australia and New Zealand in 2016.
