Legendary Bulgaria-born singer Sylvie Vartan might include Sofia in its European tour, media reported.

The most probable date for the Bulgarian concert is October 28, Bulgarian 24 Hours daily reported. Sylvie Vartan has not performed in Bulgaria since 1990 when she staged a major concert in the capital city.
