His Ukrainian manager Yana Pryadko was present and shared this video on FaceBook:
The open-air concert
The concert was great. It was obviously a bit cold, but with a Christmas hat and warm jacket, Alexander managed well. During the concert he also went down to greet the audience and handed out signed cards and some other stuff. Pictures from the concert you can see below the video.
They waited for him for more than 3 years and finally, Alexander visited Moldova for the very first time, invited by the city of Chisinau. The occasion was the anniversary of the city of Chisinau (Kishinev). He gave a press conference and was interviewed by several newspapers, performed at a mutual concert with Paula Seling, was a guest in several TV-shows and performed at an open-air-concert late at night. In Chisinau he gave the first live-performance of his new song “Leave Me Alone”.
He arrived in Chisinau 12/10 and stayed until 15/10. Sunday 14/10, between two TV-shows, he made time for a Meet & Greet with his fans in Moldova in the cozy cafe “Tucano Coffee” in Chisinau.
