BRUTTO to perform in Belarus after long ban
Good news for the fans of Belarusian rock-punk band BRUTTO which is finalled allowed to perform in Belarus. The artists wrote on their Facebook account that the cocert will take place on October 29 near the Ice Arena in Homiel.

The concert organizers - Allstars agency - has received a permit from the authoirities. Tickets will hit the sales offices with the next several days.

Over the two years since inception, BRUTTO has never been able to play in Belarus. As far as back in 2011, BRUTTO's front-man Sergei Mikhalok, the then leader of Lyapis Trubetskoy band, was banned in Belarus after having condemned the Belarus authorities for their crackdown on the opposition and civil society in the aftermatch of the brutal dispersal of December 19, 2010 protests.

After Lyapis Trubetskoy split up into BRUTTO and Trubetskoy, it is the Mikhalok-led band that has problems with performing in Belarus.
