The concert of the star of the German industrial group in Novosibirsk was scheduled for January 26, and in Moscow on January 28. However, due to the spread of a new strain of coronavirus, it was decided to postpone the performance.
“The epidemiological situation in the world is rapidly deteriorating. New restrictions are being introduced on international flights, entry and stay of members of the group and team. And holding concerts during an increase in the incidence is unsafe for visitors. Unfortunately, under these circumstances, it becomes impossible to make the Till Lindemann tour within the specified time frame. To prevent the spread of a new type of COVID-19, we are forced to reschedule the concerts to new dates, ”the artist’s representatives said.
Novosibirsk activists earlier demanded to prevent Lindemann’s concert. They asked State Duma deputies and investigators to protect children “from the stream of abomination and sewage that pours from all cracks,” and cited the artist’s songs “I Hate Children” and “Beloved City” as an example. The head of the Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, instructed Novosibirsk investigators to check the arguments of the activists and report on the results.
As Sekret Firmy wrote, Russian rapper Eldzhey (Aleksey Uzenyuk) sued 702,500 rubles from the Bashkir company Rock Art Media for canceling concerts in May 2021. In the spring of 2021, Rock Art Media announced Eldzhey’s concerts in Yekaterinburg, Perm and Ufa, but the performances had to be cancelled. The artist demanded 8.7 million rubles from her.
