One of the true legends of the Croatian music scene has celebrated his 70th birthday and a career spanning more than 50 years with a fantastic concert in Zagreb on Saturday night.

More than 10,000 fans turned up to Zagreb Arena to celebrate Oliver Dragojević’s incredible career.

Oliver belted out a number of biggest hits from the dozens of albums he recorded over the last half a century. He was supported on stage by the Zagreb philharmonic orchestra.

A number of well known Croatian musicians were in the crowd supporting Oliver, including Croatia’s Eurovision representative Jacques Houdek and 2Cellos star Stjepan Hauser and his partner Jelena Rozga.
