A local bank has agreed to sponsor two concerts in Hanoi next month by Boney M, Scorpions and Chris Norman, a source told Thanh Nien without providing details.
On October 1 Boney M and Chris Norman will perform at the National Convention Center after reaching agreement with organizers with stringent conditions, Nguyen Thuy Duong, a spokesperson for the organizers, said.
Equipment has been hired in Japan and Singapore to meet their demands, he said.
On October 23 Scorpions will perform at the 3rd Monsoon Music Festival at the Thang Long Royal Citadel.
Composer Quoc Trung said it took them years to get the Scorpions to perform at the event.
“We invited them to the first event, but they refused because the event was not widely known then. They refused to perform at the second event because they were busy.
“We had to contact them early this time besides providing commitments on the organization and equipment.”
