“It’s one thing that the honored artist Russia Valeriy Meladze makes statements that are poorly correlated with his titles and official status as a member of the Public Chamber Krasnogorskanother thing is where the money he earns at corporate parties in Moscow and Dubai facilities. Is it not to finance the Ukrainian army?” asked Korobkov-Zemlyansky in his Telegram-channel.
It is noted that throughout 2022, Meladze performed in Russia. In 2023, the singer canceled all tours and club concerts in the country. At the same time, he continued to sing at private events – corporate parties, weddings, anniversaries and parties for the rich. The artist’s fee, according to the newspaper, has fallen from 5 to 3 million rubles per hour, and guests of such concerts are asked not to publish photos and videos with the artist.
Earlier, the organizer of the canceled Meladze concert in Arkhangelsk decided through the court recover from the singer 1.25 million rubles. It is specified that the performance was supposed to take place on April 12, 2022, but it was postponed several times. As a result, the show was canceled “due to the current situation.”
