Out and About

Big Love Show in Olimpiisky

Nobody knows why, but Russians really like St. Valentine’s Day. And they are willing to celebrate it not only in clubs, but also in huge concert halls like Olimpiisky. On the 14th of February thousands of young (well, and not so young) Russians took over the concert hall on Prospect Mira, adorned with rose-colored balloons. The concert was organized and financed by Love Radio. Dima Bilan, last year’s Eurovision winner, was the first to appear on stage and knock the audience out with some of his hits. The bands that followed might have been less famous, but were highly appreciated by the tightly knitted bands of Russian teenagers in the crowd. The bands were: Sergei Lazarev, Vlad Topalov, Band’ Eros (r’n’b band), Quest Pistols, synthy-pop freaks from Ukraine. Other performers were: the Swedish band September (Russians have some of their tunes as ringtones in their mobiles), Rio with his famous song “Shine On,” Basshunter and Craig David, who was greatly expected by the audience. The show continued in Black Star, a club frequented by sons and daughters of the Russian rich, and the show-business establishment.
