“On the occasion of today’s concert in St. Petersburg, the network had a lot of stink (did not read, I was told). We began the concert with a minute of silence, and no fun at all, the program “Yiddish jazz” in itself does not carry. And most importantly: today, by and large, sadly, nobody can feel absolutely safe, because attacks are the places where people. You can cancel all concerts, close to railway stations, airports and supermarkets. Probably will be safer. But it will mean that they won. They want us all cancelled.” – says Makarevich.
Fans of the musician supported his publication of “likes”. “Andrey Vadimovich, you are 100% right. A “Yiddish jazz” rather nostalgically spring-like than funny, so all of place”, “that’s right, the proper response is to continue to live full” “All right, if you follow this logic, then we in Israel due around the clock to cry. Never”, “Absolutely agree, we must not give up”, “the Purpose of terror is to frighten people, so we stayed at home… And spend a night like this concert (but I never show entertainment) – this is hypothetical to show the terrorists that the target is not achieved,” wrote in the comments to recording artist.

If this is not the performance of the group “reflex”, the tone of the concert may be different. And nothing wrong to meet with people, to talk, to think, to sing, IMHO, no,” said the man, noting that he is not a fan of the artist.
