Long-lasting rumors have turned true: rock veterans Rolling Stones will hold a concert in Bucharest on July 14 this year, at the invitation of a Romanian mobile telephony company, music industry sources confirmed for HotNews.ro. It would be one of the major music events to be hosted by the Romanian capital this year along with the B’Estival festival in late June-early July.
Rumors have been circulating that Rolling Stones would hold a free-for-all gig in the vicinity of the House of the People in downtown Bucharest somewhere in the spring.
Vodafone Romania was behind several major gigs featuring Western music idols last year, including Depeche Mode and Shakira.
If officially confirmed for July 14, the Rolling Stones concert would come just two weeks after the city’s first major music festival, B’Estival, starring Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, Morcheeba, Wu-Tang Clan and Pink among others.
