Concert to close roads
The Athensmunicipal authority and Traffic Police will be closing off roads around the Panathenaic (Kallimarmaro) Stadium this evening for a major concert. The charity event organized by Skai’s Oloi Mazi Boroume (Together We Can) campaign is headed by veteran Greek singer-songwriter Dionysis Savvopoulos and brings together dozens of popular performers, raising organizers’ expectations for a huge event. Motorists are advised to avoid the part of Athens stretching north from Hadrian’s Arch and south from the Hilton Hotel, Kallirois Street, the bottom part of Pangrati and the eastern flank of Kolonaki between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. when the concert begins and also later, after 11 p.m., when it ends. The Athens metro and tram will run an additional hour, until 1 a.m. to accommodate concertgoers.
