Budva – Preparations for the great spectacle – concert of the group of the The Rolling Stones which will be held on 9th of July on the beach Jaz are advancing – so fat three facilities which are predicted for the backstage have already been placed.
– We have placed a dressing room of 900 square meters where on the day of the concert Mick Jagger and his band will spend a lot of time. It will be air-conditioned, with toilettes in the rooms for rest and a pool table. Second facility has 600 square meters, which is intended for about 200 people from their personnel, where the offices and the press room will be located. With a short tunnel it will be connected with the third facility – local catering room which is predicted for them and for their personnel to have lunch, prepare – revealed Blazo Radoman, representative of the Tourist organization of Budva adding that as a part of the backstage they will place totally 11 facilities.
– The following facility, which we will place, will also be for catering, but for the personnel which is not coming with them. Those are people from here and they will be engaged to help in work. First round of 25 trucks and 11 buses will come in Budva on July 3rd when they will begin to montage the stage which will be finished on July 8th for the general rehearsal which will be done by the organizers. In one of the trucks, which are coming, there is a manifold. Since their team is taking care of everything, god forbid, if a power shut down happens in entire Montenegro the concert will still be held – claims Radoman. This concert will be one of the biggest this year’s tourist attractions.
– When we have fulfilled all standards for the concert of The Rolling Stones all other events will not be a problem. Standards for this group are very high, and absolutely the same for Rome and Budva. For monitoring of the concert so far a lot of press applied of which only 40 of them will get journalist passes. Some of those journalists will be able to be in the back stage 30 minutes before the beginning of the concert, to see and shot what they need, but the communication with the members of the bend is almost impossible. They shouldn’t be hoping for that, not even for a slightest statement – reminded Radoman.
Traffic on the road Budva – Tivat overe Toplis will be closed at 9 am and only vehicles, which are heading for the concert, will be able to go through. We wanted to be kind to the local citizens so that they can satisfy their basic need – said Radoman.
– Today is the 6th day since the stage has started to be built. Production trucks are arriving on July 3rd, and the next arrival of their production is July 7th when another 42 trucks and 11 buses will arrive. In agreement with the Ministry of health we will have 7 ambulance vehicles and for the first time a mobile operation hospital which will be places below the VIP stage in which you can come from all sides – said Ognjen Raspopovic director of the Music star Montenegro. On the right side of the highway, as Raspopovic explained they will build a landing place for a helicopter should the members of the legendary group decide to come by a helicopter.
Since the day when the news that The Rolling Stones will have a concert in Montenegro was announced souvenirs with their trademark appeared on the streets. How the organizers will fight against that Raspopovic says:
Our people have a habit that when something is happening they use that to earn some money. Communal inspection will take care of all those who they find selling the souvenirs which haven’t been approved.
