In pictures: Joe Cocker at Minsk-Arena


"Hello, Minsk! God bless you," legendary Joe Cocker doesn't say a lot. He doesn't flirt with the audience - it's not the age and the reason to do so. The concert in Minsk is a scheduled gig of the musician in the framework of the tour in support of the album Fire It Up.

There was no dance floor at Minsk-Arena this time. Solid public wanted to listen to the author of a hundred hits in a cosy atmosphere. Cocker did not object. He was generous with the hits like You Can Leave Your Hat On or Cry me a River, or the cover of the Beatles' With a Little Help from My Friends, that brought him a success one day.

Joe Cocker came out for just one curtain call and said goodbye to the Minskers. To them, the grand's music was a nostalgy, some good memories and pleasant emotions.
