Famous American pop singer Christina Aguilera and German rock band Scorpions are coming to Georgia to be part of a month-long roster of performers to celebrate the newly unveiled Black Sea Arena in Georgia's west.

The musicians will perform at the new venue near Kobuleti, which boasts high-end technology and can host an audience of 10,000. Money from the ticket sales will go into state coffers.

The 200 million GEL ($93 million USD/€83 million*) Black Sea Arena concert venue was officially handed to Georgia's Government by the Cartu Charity Foundation earlier today.

The venue is located in Shekvetili, about half an hour's drive north of Batumi in Georgia's west coast. The small stadium was transferred to state ownership in an official ceremony attended by Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili.
