Today is the premiere of the live album that was captured in 2019, during LP’s Tour of Russia. On the 9th April LP performed a sold out concert, in front of a 6.000 audience at Crocus City Hall in Moscow. For my post about that concert please click here.
In LP words:
“This show is such a beautiful example of the passion, love, and affection I share with my Russian audience. I’m so happy everyone can now hear this special night!! Spasibo!”

However I also wanted to quote Olga, who witnessed LP’s magic that day and captured it in her words earlier today:
…when mysterious Dreamcatcher’s intro started the heart was pounding heavily and the degree of the emotional tension of anticipation that had been building up for many hours before was now reaching its peak. Hadn’t LP come out on stage you would have literally exploded! The eyes were desperately glued to thе stage catching every movement behind the scene… Now… it’s about to happen now… You stopped noticing hundreds of people sticking to your skin… you ceased hearing the roaring screams into your ears… you suddenly turned into a very concentrated essence of your true desire: nothing mattered more than what’s about to happen on that stage couple of meters away… Thank you LP for this awesome live album! I have been there, I felt it back then and I feel it now… again (!)
Album was recorded, engineered and mixed by Brian Pomp of Seven Seven Media, who wrote in detail about the whole process:
This was going to be a straight ahead live rock record for all intents and purposes. The performances were great and so easy to work with. One of the fundamental issues with mixing live recordings is capturing and conveying the energy experienced in the room. From the audience cheering to the chemistry of the band and artist, you get so many variables to properly put into place.
Camera operators: Paul Boychenko, Dmitriy Denshikov & Dmitriy Tsygankov. Album is out now, in most countries at least, on various digital platforms, as well as on LP’s YouTube. Later today (at 12 PST) LP will go live via YouTube and half our later we will see a premiere of video of “Lost On You”, from that very same concert.
As I’m writing my words, “One Night in The Sun” is playing, and once again I’m amazed by that song and LP’s magic… It’s one of the most beautiful songs ever written, and to be able to hear it live is literally heaven… Thank you LP for your voice and your music. Music that heals and helps so many of us… Thank you!
