Blackmore’s Night – MDM, Moscow, Russia – Special Report (10.10.03):

“…One can not help but say a few kind words to JSA. The following should be recalled. Until 2002, the arrival of Ritchie Blackmore was canceled several times due to reasons related to domestic promoters who wanted to organize a performance with numerous violations of contractual obligations. After several attempts, the manager of Blackmore became very cautious about the idea of ​​coming to our country.

The 2002 concert in Luzhniki was a huge success for JSA, which showed that there are companies in Russia that can organize the arrival of stars of any level. And the fact that in 2003 the JSA was able to organize such a holiday again suggests that a beaten track has formed for the musicians in our country, which they can use in the future. Many thanks to JSA for this. In the end, I would like to note that the music of the group has won many new fans.”

JSA Promoter team thanks the author for kind words to us from this good detailed report about the second concerts visit of Blackmore’s Night in Russia.
