“Musical tastes of tourists and fans who came to Moscow for the 2018 World Cup differ, the songs of such famous bands as Queen and Metallica are familiar to the majority of foreigners, so when the cover versions of “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions” (Queen), “Nothing Else Matters” (Metallica) were played in the metro, tourists actively sang along, applauded, made selfies with musicians and danced”, he noted.

In addition, the fans from the Middle East often asked to perform the song popular in their region -  Habibi (Maître Gims), and the guests from Latin America likes the hit “Asereje” of the Spanish “Las Ketchup” quartet.
