Mimino to fly to Baku, not Moscow2010-02-07 16:27
Vakhtang Kikabidze, the Georgian star of Soviet cinema is going to see his fans in Baku timing concerts with his 70th birthday he celebrated in 2008, the year of war in South Ossetia and had no time to mark with a jubilee tour. Buba doesn't turn up in Moscow distantly confessing love for Russian fans.
Vakhtang Kikabidze is not in a hurry to give up the stage for the sake of politics or a well deserved pension. On March 3 he is organizing a concert dedicated to Mother's Day in Tbilisi State Philarmonic Hall. He also plans to congratulate women of Azerbaijan on March 8, the international women's day with a concert in Baku Philarmonic Hall.
As the artist reports now he is negotiating concert details. "State Oil Company of Azerbaijan is acting as the concert's sponsor. Things will be finalized next week. I would like to go to Tbilisi together with friends of mine and have a joint concert since we all love that city and want to seize the opportunity of staying there one more time. It would be great to have it as a travel so that all Georgian citizens who would like to go to the concert could accompany us in buses", - APA special correspondent in Georgia quotes Kikabidze.
Cinema pilot nicknamed Mimino as he is remembered by dozens of millions of Soviet viewers continues to stay away from Russia.
Early in January the artist confessed he was missing his Russian fans. After refusal to be granted an Order of Friendship, to take part in a Russian movie, after his hostile speeches and "You didn't betray me - you disappointed me" video this revelation sounds somewhat strange.
Kikabidze said he "was missing his friends and fans in Russia". "Fans there trust me... People that are tired of life, not involved in politics, pay money and you sing for them while they forget about their problems for a while. When I go onto the stage there (in Russia) I'm inside my own world. I can simply talk instead of singing and Russians will anyway listen to me, it happened more than once", - VZGLYAD quotes.
Kikabidze also confessed his love for Russian culture referring to Turgenev, Tolstoy, Pushkin, Chekhov and Tchaikovsky. "No Georgian will ever allow himself or his grandchildren or great-grandchildren to forsake these giants", - he said as if the Russian language keeps being a mandatory subject at school, as if foreign films can be viewed translated in Russian or as if Buba is unaware of recent boycotts against the Russian language.
