The stars of 2010 Europeans returned to Tallinn for „Kings on Ice”
http://www.insideskating.net/2015/11/25 ... ngs-on-ice

On the evening of October 18th, one could notice a long line in front of the freshly built Tondiraba Ice Hall in Tallinn, Estonia; that impressive was the line that the event had to be delayed for 20 entire minutes… That was the night Evgeni Plushenko and his „Kings on Ice” show highlighted the capital of Estonia; and for a small Northern country like this one, „Kings on Ice” was a massive show, comparable only to the European Figure Skating Championships that took place here in January 2010.
And, as if we were to draw a symbolic circle between then and now, in 2010 Evgeni Plushenko won in Tallinn his 6th out of 7 European crowns, whilst the silver and the bronze were claimed by Stéphane Lambiel and Brian Joubert – and, five years later, all three medalists came back to Tallinn, for „Kings on Ice”. Tomáš Verner and Kiira Korpi were too among the contestants of 2010 Europeans – and returned to Estonia this year, as part of the cast. And, to the joy and enthusiasm of the audience, almost every participant in the show performed not one, but two exhibition routines.

One special group number – already a tradition of „Kings on Ice” shows – featured all „4 Kings”, showing their strengths and aces: Evgeni Plushenko, Stéphane Lambiel, Brian Joubert, Tomáš Verner.

The host of the show, Russia’s Evgeni Plushenko, closed both parts of the gala. He first introduced his new short program to Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana: a powerful, famous piece of music which, combined to his unique skating style, made fans go absolutely nuts.

In the end, the skater whose titles took a couple of minutes to announce decided to get nostalgic and recall the music of his first Olympic triumph. Evgeni Plushenko skated to “Tosca Fantasy”, accompanied by his friend and composer Edvin Marton and his one-of-a-kind Stradivarius violin. At 32, the Russian legend didn’t loose his charisma – or his fans. He actually seemed to be on top of his game in Tallinn, successfully executing a series of triple Axels during the show.

At the end of the show in Tallinn, the participants indulged the fans with another two collective performances. Not to mention the audience didn’t seem to want to let the skaters go – so Evgeni Plushenko, always in a good mood, promised to pay a visit next year. Well, the audience in Estonia is already waiting…
