Beyonce to Baptize New Donbass Arena in Ukraine, August 29

3. August 2009 by Gregg 0 Comments

Taking a one-off detour from her phenomenally successful “I AM…” tour, internationally renowned singer Beyonce Knowles will play her first ever show in Ukraine for the opening of the brand new Donbass Arena Stadium in late August.

 

The Donbass Arena is a brand new, 5-star stadium being built in the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine. The project, said to cost almost 400 million US dollars was started in 2006 and is set to open August 29th. August 29th is Miner’s Day in Donetsk and as the Stadium will be the new home of local soccer team FC Shakhtar Donetsk, or in English, “Donetsk Miners”, the day is significant. Donetsk was founded in 1869 around several coal mines and the city, and indeed the entire Donbass area, has a proud blue-collar legacy that lives on today.
