December 18 2008

In the midst of a great concert season 2008-2009. experts of the Information Agency «InterMedia» decided to take his interim results, assessing the concert life in 2008. On the whole year has been quite prosperous for the domestic music industry, although the outbreak of the economic
crisis has undoubtedly left its mark on the last few months.

Professionals show business unanimous: the recession of sales of tickets and a significant decrease in the number of concerts we should expect in 2009. In the next 2-3 years we are unlikely to see such an abundance of concerts of Russian and foreign musicians, which was observed in 2007-2008. Experts predict that the concert market in 2009 may decrease by 10-30%. Nevertheless, the show must go on and live performances will be in demand by the public, even in the most dysfunctional times.

For 2008 in the top continues to veterans, each year brings together the largest area in all cities of Russia: "Turetsky Choir", Philip, Alexander Rosenbaum, Yuri Antonov, Grigory Leps. It is interesting that they all represent a totally different musical genres: from pop-rock, chanson, and pop classics. At the 4 gig "Turetsky Choir" in the Kremlin, the tickets were sold out in less than a month, and due to excessive demand
Organizers were forced to make even further - the fifth! - Concert in the concert hall "Russia" in the Luzhniki Stadium.

One of the biggest events of the year was the concert * * Zemfira, who no longer appeared on the big stage for four (!) Hours holding its powerful energy-packed Olympic Stadium. Not less
effectively get in and out debutants - ten days before the "Zemfira" in the "Olympic" made by Maxim, and also a huge success. The youngest were triumphant "Ranetki, fans are not left in a DS Luzhniki

But even if we take into account ticket sales on all platforms and in all cities in Russia (for instance, only the head of the rating of "Turetsky Choir" gives about 100 concerts a year, not counting the performances on the busx
concerts and corporate events), our artists are far from the stars of foreign music scene.

Thus, the record holder of the year - Madonna - 3 hours sold more than 100 thousand tickets to concerts in Mexico, but only on its entire tour - more than 1 million tickets. In 2000, the U.S. tour "No Strings Attached" the group `NSync in one day was sold 1 million tickets. And in 2005, on a world tour concerts Robbie Williams for three days of sales out of print more than 1.6 million tickets.
