The leader of the “King and jester” Pot remembered superconcert in the hellish Inferno

“As long as I’m alive I believe in miracles” – these lines from the song “Bear” from the legendary Russian rock group “King and the Clown” could not be more suitable as an epitaph to the permanent team leader Michael Gorshenev. Sunday, August 7, “the Pot” would have turned 43 years old. And what happened this evening at the club Bud Arena in Moscow at a concert of his memory, can be called a miracle without any reservations. “Pot” died three years ago, but the number of his fans is not only not diminished, but rather increased, including at the expense of those who are not able to see the rollicking punk-rocker, so to speak, alive. The most eloquent confirmation of this can serve an ad to the cashier: “concert Княzz all tickets are sold. Quite everything. In General, all”.

The “Prince” is a close friend, partner and supporter “of the Pot” Andrey Knyazev — played one of the most energetic concerts in recent years. Although the word “most” is hardly appropriate, because the rocker is always laid out for one hundred. Sounded all the basic of the song “King and Jester”, the author of which was the Prince. Andrew not once, not twice appealed to the audience, including touching memories of the departed comrade. For example, said that Pot was a staunch opponent of any gifts, and equally did not like to bring gifts and make them myself. It unwittingly gave a friend a joke: somehow, the Prince had collected in his apartment all the trash — old socks, candy wrappers, and other husk — put stuff in a box and donated to “the Pot” as a gift on birthday. The birthday boy appreciated such a gift.

I must say that during the concert was broken on another climatic record, this summer’s communication of the club did not cope with the influx of people and the temperature in the room exceeded 35 degrees. Some fainted, they had to stand out of the crowd. Other more lucky for those who stood in the forefront: compassionate guard handing out water. But even hell’s heat did not prevent the traditional slam, and very hard: not without bruises and light injuries. Of course, the apogee of enthusiasm was reached when the Prince came out “encore” and performed “Golden hits” “King and the Clown – Doll sorcerer”, “Forester”, “Jump off a cliff” and “fade out”. And the fan chants after the concert proceeded in carriages of the Moscow metro.
