VILNIUS - After over a year of negotiations, managers of British pop star Sir Elton John finally signed the agreement on the only performance of the signer in one of the three Baltic states.
Lithuanian concert agency Makrokoncertas announced that the concert will be held on Sept. 1, as this is the last free day in the performer's concert schedule this year.
According to Makrokoncertas representatives, it has not been decided yet which capital will host the event.
"We'll talk to Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn city authorities," Inga Grigaliunaite, Makrokoncertas PR specialist told BNS. "We will hold the concert in the city that will ensure the best conditions for the performer's fans and top-level show organization. The exact place of the event should be clear in a few weeks," she added.

Elton John performed in Riga and Tallinn five years ago, when more then 30,000 people attended his concerts.

Music critics call Elton John the most outstanding British performer after the legendary The Beatles.
