The Istria Times Sinke

The grandiose Roman amphitheatre in Pula is one of the most preserved sites of the kind in the world. While in the past it was used to host gladiatorial battles, today it provides hospitality to movie festivals and spectacular music concerts. One such evening happened yesterday, as the fascinating arena welcomed Foo Fighters, currently among the most popular bands in the world. The highly anticipated event was attended by several thousand fans from all over the globe, and second concert will take place today, June 19th.

In addition to enjoying hits that shaped a generation of rock music fans, the attendees will also have an opportunity to purchase a specially designed poster for this occasion. Approved by the band and made by Istrian artists Aleksandar Zinov and Andrea Rosar, it can be bought in Istarska street for the price of 100 HRK / 13. 50 €. Foo Fighters have also become involved with local humanitarian efforts.
