WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- Organizers of a Madonna concert in the Polish capital have agreed to a request from city officials to start the show with a brief clip about the Warsaw Uprising, the 1944 revolt against Nazi rule, in a nod to war veterans.

Some veterans and young Catholics have voiced anger that the Aug. 1 concert falls on the 68th anniversary of the uprising -- a day marked with a somber tone.

The city-wide attack ended in the deaths of thousands of Poles and the destruction of the city.

City officials proposed airing a clip about the revolt to allay the veterans' feelings.

Ania Pietrzak, a spokeswoman for concert organizer Live Nation, said Wednesday "it is an important moment in Polish history, so we have decided to remind people of that moment."
