“The organizers of the Coke Live Peninsula Festival are delighted to announce a surprise concert for the day of Saturday, July 25. The legendary rock band Iris will enter the stage for the first time after vocalist Cristi Minculescu’s liver transplant in March. The fans may see for themselves at the Coke Live Peninsula festival that Iris is the band that will never disappoint them,” the organizers declared in a press release. According to them, the band will perform before the recitals by Primal Scream and Nine Inch Nails. The concert to be performed by Iris in Targu Mures is the first after Cristi Minculescu’s surgery.
