I am pretty sure that this concert will be as popular as Verona was last year!

Read about the Pula Arena here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pula_Arena
The Pula Arena is the name of the amphitheatre located in Pula, Croatia. The Arena is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have four side towers and with all three Roman architectural orders entirely preserved. It was constructed in 27 BC - 68 AD and is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the World. A rare example among the 200 Roman surviving amphitheatres, it is also the best preserved ancient monument in Croatia.

Can't wait! :D Perfect place for a concert... this could be even more memorable than my first Cohen concert in Lucca.

Pula has an airport which is served by a number of cheaper carriers including Ryanair see http://www.airport-pula.hr/index.php?menu_id=25

As Tom wrote elsewhere, it is also not such a big distance by bus from either Zagreb or Ljubljana airports

It's 2 hours car ride from Zagreb or Trieste or Ljubljana or Venice - highways all the time.

Adria Entertainment announced the show on their Facebook pages and provided link for tickets (which will work on March 1st):

It's high season.. I don't know, some forum members told me they found cheap accommodation, even near the arena itself.

I am used to getting discounted prices as I work for one of the major booking companies, but I've had no luck for that time of year. I was hoping to stay at the park plaza resort, which looks fantastic for me and my other half.

Paul Ryanair not so cheap to Pula, quite expensive in fact.

James T try booking.com there are some cheap hotels if you are not after plush that is.
