Legendary rock band Agatha Christies recent anniversary concert at the Luzhniki Sports Palace brought together numerous Russian rock stars, the daily Zhizn reported.
Agatha Christie is celebrating its 15th year together as a group.
ChaiFfrontman Vladimir Shakhrin and the full lineup of Smysloviye Gallyutsinatsii all from Yekaterinburg, Agatha Christie's hometown were the first to arrive. They joined the band in the rehearsal room. Drinking beer, the musicians recalled the landmark events in their career.
"In Moscow, we get together even more often than we do in our hometown," said Sergei Bobunets, Smyslovye Gallyutsinatsiis vocalist. "This calls for booze," he added.
Then B2 came in, warmly greeted the members of Agatha Christie, took to the stage and performed their new song "Sneg kruzhitsa" (Swirling Snow).
Actor Andrei Panin, best known for playing the "bad cop" in the popular TV series "Brigada," made an appearance as well and confessed that he was a long-time fan of Agatha Christie.
"I like their music a lot, and the guys promised they would give me CDs of their latest albums," Panin proudly said.
But only the 7B frontman, Ivan Demyan, arrived with a real birthday present.
"Knowing your fondness for high-quality alcoholic beverages, I decided to give you, my brothers, a bottle of really good vodka," Demyan said, producing a bottle filled with a dark liquid.
Noticing the bewildered expression on the faces of Gleb Samoilov and his brother, Vadim, also of Agatha Christie, Demyan explained that this was special, rare vodka with healthy herbal extracts. The brothers Samoilov emptied the bottle right in the car on their way back from the concert.
