Elton John to Perform in Georgia

On September 16, the Black Sea Arena will host British pop and rock musician, singer and composer, Sir Elton John and his band. Journalists were invited to a press conference at SOLO Lounge in Vake, on May 31.

The organizers of the press conference were SOLO and Eastern Promotions. The British musician and winner of six Grammy awards will visit Georgia for the first time as part of his “Wonderful Crazy Night Tour”.

Elton John will perform world known hits as well as songs from his last studio album, which is namesake to the tour. It was released in 2016, and is Sir Elton’s 33rd album. During his 50-year career, he has performed over 4000 concerts in over 80 countries, as well as selling over 250 million records. Elton John has won an Oscar, a Golden Globe, six Grammys and four British Music Awards to name but a few.

The legendary singer has composed music for theater productions, as well as for the famous films: The Lion King and Tim Rice’s Aida. In 1996, Elton John was Knighted by the British Royal Family for his special contribution to the music industry and charity activities. Since the 1980s, he has been actively participating in a campaign to combat HIV/AIDS. In 1992, he founded the “Elton John HIV/AIDS Foundation.”

Eka Duchidze, leader of SOLO Lifestyle, said ‘’tickets will be available from June 25. Each and every SOLO customer will be entitled to buy 6 tickets at once. Ticket prices start at GEL 90.” Reportedly, those who are not SOLO members will be able to purchase seats from GEL 150. Tickets will be available online at www.tkt.ge and in SOLO lounges. From June 29, tickets will then go to sale to the general public.

Giorgi Kereselidze, Director of Eastern Promotions, told media representatives: “It is no surprise to see mega stars coming to Georgia. This time, the Black Sea Arena will host one of the greatest musicians, Elton John, who will visit Georgia as part of his world tour. We hope that the concert will be unforgettable for the Georgian audience. The visit of high profile stars such as Sir Elton John drastically improves the image of Georgia in all aspects. This will be the last concert at the Black Sea Arena for the season. We have been working on this project for two years and got confirmation at the end of 2016.

Georgia is the first stop in the legendary star’s Asian tour. From the Black Sea Arena, near Shekvetili, Ozurgeti Municipality, Elton John will then visit Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines and Oceania. For more info please, visit: www.SOLO.ge; http://facebook.com/www.SOLO.ge
