Blackmore’s Night performed at the Moscow Youth Palace (capacity 1800) on October 10 and 11, 2003. That was a great two-day event for rock music lovers. The legend, Ritchie Blackmore, and his band arrived in Moscow again. These concerts were organized by the team of JSA Promoter.

The famous guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, a former member of the bands Deep Purple and Rainbow, opened his European tour to present a new album – Ghost of a Rose. That was a great event in Russia.

Each concert lasted about two hours. The set list included songs from the new album and previous hits already known from last year’s show. On both evenings, the audience called Blackmore’s Night persistently and loudly for an encore. When the band returned to the stage, the audience stood up from their seats and jointly sang the song “We Sing Together” like a hymn.

So, the second visit of Blackmore’s Night in Moscow was glorious. The musicians were pleased, and after the shows, Ritchie Blackmore willingly talked with fans and gave his autographs.

The concerts were held with the support of the distributor of musical products – the company Group SOYUZ (UNION). The JSA Promoter team conducted a good advertising campaign for this event through the network of SOYUZ stores.

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. 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 group’s music has won many new fans.”

The JSA Promoter team thanks the author for his kind words to us in this well-detailed report about the second visit of Blackmore’s Night in Russia.
