Months and years of speculation, disappointments and longing are over. Serj Tankian, Armenian-American singer–songwriter best known as the lead vocalist of the Grammy Award-winning rock band System of a Down, has officially confirmed a concert in Yerevan’s K. Demirchyan Sport and Concert Complex (Hamalir). Time: 7:00PM Thursday, August 12th. Tickets to start selling in July, price ranging 4-50 thousand AMD and totally worth it.
First rumors about Tankian concert in Armenia were circulated back in 2007. SOAD and Tankian fans waited patiently through consecutive years of rumours, learning to mistrust. A couple of months ago, when I heard yet again, that one of my top-favorite singers is to give a concert in Yerevan, I nodded with scepticism.
This time the announcement is different. The companies involved are Deem Communications and Fugitive Studios, made a public announcement today, citing a date, details and ticket prices.
“The stars were in the order,” they said explaining how this time is different and why the concert is actually going to take place. So be it, our star – Serzh Tankian, will be in the order at Hamalir this August, and gosh, I’m happy about that!
