Last week it would have been great if I had managed to attend the Bryan Adams concert at Palats Sportu in Kyiv, but just to many things going on. I have heard nothing about how the show was or what the attendance was like, but at the same time it’s not like there is ever a lot of talk about such things on radio here in Kyiv.
Though there was one tid-bit that crept out regarding the Enrique Iglesias concert some time earlier that week. It was brought to my attention that the show started two hours late due to the fact that all the equipment for the show was being trucked in from Moscow and was held up at the border. Yes, it seems that while there are a number of sound companies in Kyiv artists come in with their own equipment. This was the case during the Eurovision Song Competition in 2005 and seems to be the case with all major artists that come into this fair country.
So just when will this nation’s capital have the right sound to cater to international stars. Could be waiting for some time I think.
