If concert bookings in Athens this year were a poker game, then a Royal Flush just dropped on the table. Celine Dion is coming to Greece for the first time ever as part of her Courage World Tour. The phenomenal, multi-awarded, best-selling—and all sorts of extravagant adjectives that actually apply—artist will perform at the Athens Olympic Sports Complex on the last day of July, right before most Athenians set off for the August summer break—an ideal time to experience a much more laidback Athens. So the plan would be to book tickets for a concert of a global pop star, kicking off a couple of weeks vacation in a serene historic city with a magical riviera.
Update: Celine Dion's 2020 concert has been cancelled due to COVID-19. The concert has been rescheduled for 2021. All 2020 tickets apply for 2021. More information on vouchers and refunds will be announced soon.
