Budva – Organization of the concert of the Rolling Stones on Jaz is one of the most successful ones on world tour “A Bigger Bang” of this cult British rock group, and the visit of 52.000 funs has overshadowed the spectacles held in Rome and Brussels during June – it was said on a press conference held yesterday in Municipality of Budva. Not hiding his thrill vice president of the Municipality Lazar Radjenovic said that a real spectacle occurred on Jaz.
– Concert has “raised” Budva on a world scale of tourist destinations. All state and local institutions have passed their exam in organization of this event, and above all I would give the credit to the audience, of all ages and nations for having everything go by without a single incident. I would also thank to minister of tourism Predrag Nenezic for managing to animate the surrounding so Budva received funs of this group from surrounding countries – said Radjenovic and added that the concert is a “credit” for organization of other big spectacles. Also he said that Budva next year will be a host to similar music events and he wished that the great atmosphere from Jaz be transferred on Belgrade concert of the Stones. First of all he thanked all those who took part in organization of the concert, and manager Raka Maric, with a remark that he is a man of action and not man of words apologized to all media if there were any misunderstandings.
– We got praises from the management of the group that the concert in Budva was one of the bets organized during their tour. Now I have a hard task – I have to justify such expectation in Belgrade too. From all part of the world we receive praises, and I can say that those who didn’t attend the spectacle missed a lot in their lives. This is a big step and in some way a guideline for organization of other concert events – said Maric.
Especially praising Budva Maric promised that already next year he would make a concert center of it:
Everyone knows that I am not good with number, but the estimates about the exact number of visitors on Jaz will be known in 15 days. We estimate that there were about 52.000 people, half of them were domestic funs, and others were funs from Serbia, Croatia, some from Albania, Bosnia and some from various other countries.
The concert is priceless in terms of promotion of Montenegro and we are not even aware of how much that will affect position of Budva on a tourist map of the world. The record that the visit in Budva has surpassed the concerts in Rome and Brussels, metropolis with millions of people, speaks enough about how successful the organization of the concert in Budva was – said Radoman.
That the concert went without a single incident, and that organization functioned perfectly was confirmed by the chief of traffic police Miso Zec, director of Budva health center Zoran Spadijer, and the head of the Service for protection and rescuee Zdravko Sljukic.
ON WORLD LEVEL
Stating that at the beginning everyone was skeptical and frightened because of the concert on Jaz, Wolfgang Klinger from the management of the Stones says that he trusted his partners in Montenegro.
– We are satisfied with the organization on Jaz and we can freely compare it to the spectacles in London and Germany. The show was exquisite and I can say that after such a good organization already next year when many world starts are starting their tours we will try to bring some of them to Budva – said Klinger.
