HELSINKI, April 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Preparations for the concerts of American singers Miley Cyrus and Justin Timberlake at Helsinki’s Hartwall Arena continue regardless of sanctions against co-owners of the stadium Gennady Timchenko, Arkady Rotenberg and Boris Rotenberg, CEO of Live Nation Finland Nina Castren told ITAR-TASS.
Castren said that US sanctions against Russian businessmen will not influence the scheduled concerts. Not only Miley Cyrus and Justin Timberlake shows, but concerts of all other US singers will be organized and held according to schedule, Castren added.
On Thursday, April 3, The Financial Times reported that concerts of Cyrus and Timberlake in Helsinki, scheduled for June 1 and May 12 respectively, may be jeopardized. US promoter Live Nation Entertainment has asked the Ministry of Finance for clarifications. Concert organizer Live Nation Suomi later received confirmation that sanctions do not prevent concerts of US singers from being held in Hartwall Arena.
