Rolling Stones possible in concert on National Stadium on July 17
The concert will be the last big-scale event to be hosted by the stadium before going through refurbishments.

BUCHAREST – The Bucharest Municipality has been asked by the Rolling Stones concert organisers to make available the ‘Lia Manoliu’ National Stadium on July 17, according to Virgil Carstea, head of the Parks, Lakes and Leisure Administration from the Municipality.

The Municipality is expected to make a decision in the next two weeks, after negotiations with the contractor who has been assigned the re-building of the ‘Lia Manoliu’ Stadium. The Municipality intends to make the Rolling Stones show the last major event to be hosted by the stadium before proceeding to its modernization.

Carstea stated that the concert may or may not be granted the use of the National Stadium varying with the work schedule of the builder – Astaldi-Mas Bogl, who, last week, was declared successful in the tendering procedure organised for the renovation of the National Stadium. The modernisation works should have begun this spring.

Local advertising industry sources told Mediafax that the Rolling Stones show would take place on July 14, without indicating the venue. The musicians answered the invitation of a mobile telephony operator and an advertising agency is already working on the promotion of the event. Vodafone Romania has sent the brief to the advertising agency it usually employs, added the same sources.
