Deep Purple and Hallyday rock Moscow

30th Oct 2012

Legendary heavy metal band Deep Purple and French rock and roll star Johnny Hallyday have been wowing fans in Russia.

Hallyday, whose 53-year career has seen him collaborate with everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Charles Aznavour, was performing in Moscow as part of his Never Alone farewell tour.

The goodbye tour has already taken the 69-year-old to New York, London and Montreal, where he treated fans to songs from some of his 40 albums, 18 of which have gone platinum. Hallyday shot to fame in the 1960s for singing rock and roll songs in French and was considered by some to be the 'French Elvis Presley'.

Meanwhile, British rock band Deep Purple, considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and once named the world's loudest band, performed at Moscow's Olympiyskiy Stadium as part of their tour of Europe and Russia. The group has millions of fans in Russia, including Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, and have been frequent performers there.
