    if there's no promoter willing to pay PJ fees, there will be no PJ show there...

    Jeff can play his pink "Free Pussy Riot" bass throughout the concert (See 2013 South American shows). We'll never see PJ again!!! :lol:

    A Russian fan? Really? I was already losing hope about it.

    Not sure they would sell that quickly in Russia. Not much awareness in Russia about PJ. I had very difficult time here finding the official albums, DVD's when I was collecting them like 2 years ago. Big record stores and Gorbushka people have not even heard about this band. Finally, I collected them in my home country Turkey and some from Europe.

    I hope I am wrong about it but that is what I have experienced.

    Привет всем.

    I've wondered why they've never played there too. Not just a one-off show, but something added to a Euro tour. I'm sure they'd love to rock Red Square!

    Wovw, this support is really heartening. I would love to be a host here for 10C PJ fans in case of a show.

    I love St. Petersburg and have been wanting to re-visit Moscow for years. Finally an excuse to make it happen. Only not sure i could pull it off now that I have a kid.

    I am not sure why it has not happened, a show in either Moscow or St. Petersburg would be great, maybe next time they tour Europe!

    I would definitely try to go, and I can even speak a little (very very little) Russian.
    I am just a dreamer, but you are just a dream...

    You can leave the kid at my place during the show. S/he will hang out with mine.

    Come to think of this exciting subject, I should say Russians have this unique talent such that; anything they touch, they make it the most expensive item in the world. I am pretty sure that a PJ show in Moscow would reveal one of the most expensive ticket prices ever in the band history. Not that I think would stop a lot of PJ fans, but still an issue.

    I have been saying they should play Kiev, Ukraine, may as well play Moscow while they are at it

    You decide if you are happy or not, no one else makes that decision for you, so why not be happy? I mean it beats the alternative, right? And listening to Pearl Jam makes me happy, so consequently I listen to a whole bunch of Pearl Jam -Hank Kershell 2014
