In the capital’s “Crocus city Hall” was already a third sold-out concert of Grigory Leps, which is to Muscovites the new program “why so serious”. It – how the songs from the new album of the artist, and the good old netlenki “Glass of vodka”, “Waterfall”, “the best day”.
Grigory Leps celebrated 55-year anniversary in the summer, but this year decided to change the tradition and celebrate the holiday not on the stage and in the circle of family and friends. But now he gives five concerts. Each supports his wife Anna, a reliable rear and concurrently Director of the jewelry house of Grigory Leps. In the lobby, anyone can buy jewelry from GL Jewelry.
This time the scenery on stage set a bit: big screen”backdrops”, which were spinning abstract screensaver, and smoke machines, burning during several songs. But in principle, the public had one and the Leps, which would move energetically from one end of the stage to the other and even ran out into the hall to shake the audience and to greet the guests of honor. And Gregory himself has admitted in an interview that in order to make a show he needed only a microphone and his Komenda musicians. Increasingly the public reacted to the remake of “Terminator” Sergei Shnurov and a song from the new album of Gregory “Amen.”
Between the first and second part of the concert of 22 November Gregory asked the audience to observe a minute of silence in honour of Opera baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky, who died on 56-m to year of life. Leps said that it was a legendary, wonderful artist.
Following this, together with the charges of its production center Alexander by panajotovym Leps performed the ballad “I listened to the rain.” It was not the only duet of the evening. Also with the jubilee came on the scene singer, Ramadi, band Green Gray and Ukrainian rapper Artem Loic, who collaborated with Gregory three years ago. Then among artists was a conflict – in the words of rapper, Leps were imposing on him the song he wanted to sing because she did not conform his views and life position. But, apparently, the hatchet is buried.
Throughout the concert the artist talked a lot with the audience, joking. Before the song “the Mafia never dies”, for example, remembered the good word of Barack Obama, admitting: “this person I have become known around the world – so the next song is dedicated to him.” Two and a half hours of live sound, the audience did not have even a working day in the middle of the week. In the late evening on bis sounded sounded “the best day” and “Waterfall”.
