In Moscow, on the 9th of March, in the largest Sport Palace, was held perhaps the last large-scale concert of the recent period of time. Despite of the coronavirus fervor, the already world-famous singer from Kazakhstan, Dimash Kudaibergen, and the composer Igor Krutoy, managed to gather a full stadium of people. However, this is not something surprising. It seems that fans would go to attend his performances even if the end of the world was underway. For the next week, the star plans concerts in Germany that he also was not going to cancel. Maybe the love for Dimash gives immunity against infection or maybe frau Merkel herself was preparing to attend his performance. We’ll find everything now. Dimash Kudaibergen and Igor Krutoy are today in the Central TV’s studio. I want so bad to applaud you but we don’t have audience Hello. Operators and everyone we have in the studio, you can applaud instead. Thank you very much. Dimash and Igor Y, you had a huge concert on March 9th. But immediately on the 10th, Sergey Semionovich (mayer of Moscow) banned all mass gatherings. Admit it. Maybe Serghey Semionovich (mayer of Moscow) was standing somewhere in the hall, in the first row, maybe the mayor of Moscow is your fan? Why exactly on the 10th, only after your concert? I don’t know… it happened like this probably. And the day after that, I was going to hold a concert in Kiev, and the same thing happened there. The next day after the concert, they announced the quarantine. I don’t know… maybe I was just lucky like that. Fortunate… Yeah, fortunate… Did you take… especially, Igor Yakovlevich (since he is older), did you take some precautions? I don’t know. Maybe turning away the hands of the fans or maybe standing at the piano with a mask. Well, my precaution was not going to Kiev. Yeah. Well, actually I was not able to go there But in regards to Moscow… well, you didn’t perform before while wearing a mask, right? I should try… How the voice will turn out. Yeah… how it will sound. Well, yes, interesting. Tell me, you are planning to tour in Germany but many artists already canceled these European concerts Did they make an exception for you? Open the mystery for us. Or, after all, coronavirus is stronger? First of all, even if they would’ve made an exception, I would’ve been afraid myself because you can’t put people’s lives at risk. It would be better to postpone them. Yes, better to postpone them calmly, after that, without hurry, we can… So, concerts will not take place yet. Yes. It seems like a correct decision to me. By the way, when was your last time in China? Half a month ago… Or maybe a bit more… When did coronavirus began? That is to say, the virus was already there. Yes. When coronavirus broke out, I was in Beijing at that time, and after that I took a flight to Kazakhstan we had some video shootings there, by chance and the next day it turned out they closed the borders with Kazakhstan. Unbelievable. Interesting to know, have you considered such a scenario… they say that in China the virus started to decline, maybe it’s worth hiding there from the viruses that are spreading here? I don’t know, I don’t know… You can’t guess what will happen there… There’s no place where one can hide, I think We need to hope that they will find a cure, after all. Uh… Well, yes, everyone hopes that. I don’t know if the virus is to blame or something else for that, but I wanted to ask about a video from your concert. Show it to us, please So you want to know if he is infected or not? Firstly, yes, that. Secondly, is this a common happening at your concerts or did this comrade already understood that all the concerts will be postponed and decided to fire himself up on the last one? In my opinion, this is Todis’ branch in Kiev (soviet and Russian ballet group)
(lmao) Yes, probably. Dimash, I know that at your concerts, besides singing, you also play on an amazing instrument, that is called dombra And you’re even doing rap. So why didn’t we hear it before? Well… By the way, there is the video too Can you play something? Give as the dombra quickly. Can you show us for a second? It’s possible to rap along with this? It’s possible to rap along with this? I don’t know. Like that saying: “The young man is playing on the violin and says: “I don’t know how to play it and I didn’t try it before”. Like I already said, performances are being canceled everywhere in the world, not only in our country. Only in our studio. Even though today we don’t have audience in here, there are millions at the TV screens, I beg you to go on the stage. Before going, I want to thank you because at every premiere of a new song, we come here, at your invitation This is already a tradition This is a tradition and these songs are having a good and easy fate after that so let’s not break the tradition We’re not going to, it will take place here, at the Central Television So, I propose to make a gift. You can go to the stage. I propose to make a gift for everyone that wanted to go at the concert of these amazing artists, but couldn’t because of the well-known reason. I think and I hope this is the first and the last time when they will perform in an empty hall. Dimash Kudaibergen. Igor Krutoy. The premiere of the song “Your Love”, that gathered more than 1,5 million views in only three days. Igor Krutoy and Dimash Kudaibergen. The hall is so empty and silent. There should have been applause. In the times we live the hand-shaking and embraces are not welcomed but I will do it anyway. Awesome song. Thank you very much for coming. Applause from those who are in the studio. Give them to us. Thank you. Thank you. I wish you success. See you.
