The floor has been laid, the sound system has been tested and the stage is set for famous British pop star Robbie Williams to perform in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi tonight.
Williams will take to the stage in front of a sold-out crowd of 38,000 people at Dinamo Arena, which has been transformed from a sports stadium into a concert venue for tonight’s show.
Organiser said Williams will perform his popular hit songs in a "grand show" at the stadium.
Williams is one of four headline acts within the Check in Georgia program that encompasses more than 30 cultural and entertainment events hosted by Georgia throughout the year.
Williams' concert follows the April 24 gig of Italian singer Eros Ramazzotti at the Tbilisi Sports Palace, and precedes shows by popular American band Maroon 5 (June 7) and Spanish tenor Jose Carreras (June 18) within Check in Georgia.
