According to father Nicanor, a kind of “influential authority” has strongly advised the leadership of the hall, “platinum-arena” to cancel the concert. That advice came in Musical theater, despite already hung posters and partially sold tickets.
I couldn’t resist under the influence of the “Council” and night club “Velicano”, so in the end Grebenshikov concert in Khabarovsk scheduled for late may, could not take place, resulting in the force logistics will be also cancelled concerts in Blagoveshenski and Komsomolsk-on-Amur and in question will be performances in Vladivostok and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.
The blogger claims that the organizers of the tour in the “court” explained that Grebenshchikov is included in received from Moscow a list of “insufficiently Patriotic entertainers”, there is also a “Shevchuk, Diana, Makarevich, Rotaru, lorac, Malinin, Noise-Em-si”.
The organizers of the far Eastern tour Grebenshchikov in interview “Cupid media” confirmed the political reasons for the cancellation of the concerts, adding that it is about the attitude to the “Ukrainian question”.
He says that he knows about the situation as much as the blogger wrote, saddened her, and hoped that the concert in Khabarovsk will take place. In addition, Grebenshchikov wrote, he and the band “really wanted to play in Komsomolsk-on-Amur”.
In his post hieromonk Nicanor recalls that Grebenshchikov during the flood in the far East in 2013 organized a fundraiser for victims, and organizers add that the concerts, if it had not been cancelled, would have passed with the notice.
