Bi-2 is a Russian rock band.
One of the most famous bands in Russia and CIS (with Mumiy Troll and Zemfira). Became popular after movie “Brat 2”.
It will be the largest post in my blog (about 80 photos).
A lot of people in Russia think that the Bi-2 is a band with Belarusian origin, but in Israel we think that the Bi-2 is our band. Why? The leaders of the band- Leva and Shura lived in Israel and they wrote a lot of songs under the influence of Jerusalem. And yes, they are “zionist spies” with israeli citizenship (Leva served in the IDF:))
It was great show with good light, powerful sound and sense of friendship between the musicians and the audience. All tickets were sold out for a few days via Facebook (without advertising in press and posters about show). And yes, the club was full of people (good for band, bad for me).
I think it was the best russian bands show in Israel in 2013…Really!
To be honest, it wasn’t my first Bi-2 show. In february 2009 I came to the “16 Tonns” (music club in Moscow) with my first photo accreditation in this place to photograph Bi-2. At that time I was “young” show-photographer without any skills (I started to photograph shows in november 2008).
I found my post after show in 2009 (wow, it was 4,5 years ago), I wrote short message about it- “A lot of people. People are very angry and Leva with Shura are very friendly”.
After 4,5 years the Bi-2 are still very friendly. I hope we’ll meet again…
P.S: I want to say thank you to Igor Rubinstein – good and humble man.
And here are some photos from 2009. Such a horrible photo:)
