On December 23, 2007, Shakira played her show in Tbilisi. That was her first visit to Georgia. The performance was in a large open area on the banks of the Kura River, not far from the historical center and near the Presidential Palace. According to local police, there were more than 350,000 spectators. The entrance was free. Now there is a city park at that place, and there was built a new concert hall Rhike.

That was a unique event. JSA received a request to organize full technical support 10 days before the date of the show. The full Production Set was delivered by airplanes from Riga (Latvia) and Kyiv (Ukraine). It was necessary to combine the possibilities of delivery (the weight of the load) – deliver a minimum of equipment and at the same time in order to maximally meet the needs of the artist’s performance.

All the days of the montage and the show day were blowing strong and cold wind into the stage’s face.

Such a large-scale concert was for the first time in Georgia, where the Rose Revolution had just happened. After a long period of “criminal” instability, democratic forces came to power and were about to start changes for a better life.

We were proud to be useful at that moment, and we did our professional work well.

Special thanks to Tatiana Dalskaya (the promoter of the project), the technical company Sendy (Ukraine), and Gee Ilze Eriņa (freelance, a production manager).

Teams from JSA Europe, JSA Moscow and JSA Ukraine worked in the project.
