U2 Leader Bono Sings Duet with DDT Frontman Yury Shevchuk at Moscow Concert

Bono performed Knocking on Heavens Door in duet with the leader of Russian DDT band Yuri Shevchuk at the concert of U2 in Moscow.
      
      Bono sang the refrain of the song in English, whereas Shevchuk sang the couplets in Russian. When singing this song, Bono thanked the spectators who had booked the Red Zone tickets - all the income from tickets sale will be allocated for treatment of children suffering from AIDS.
      
      Recently Yuri Shevchuk has been playing a remarkable role in the Russian opposition movement: in particular, he is actively supporting defenders of the Khimki Forest.
      
      As for the U2 gig in Luzhniki, Moscow, it did not run without a scandal. Volunteers of the Amnesty International were detained by Moscow militia, which also closed all information stalls of the Amnesty International, Greenpeace of Russia and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS. Militiamen claim that volunteers arranged an illegal picket before the concert.
