After relase of Lilith in December, 1997 - January, 1998, Boris assembled a new band, that included only on member of Aquarium 1997 - Andrej Surotdinov. But this time, this violin player was playing keyboards. Another notable addition was the return of Alexander Lyapin. In April, 1998 Boris and his band finally made it to the US. They played two concerts in New York City.
The first concert was played at the Irving Plaza on April 25, 1998. This concert includes one of the best performance of Тень. It also includes the new version of Мой Друг Доктор. It was also the first time I heard Скорбец, which doesn't sound anything like the version released on the CD-single, and the first time I heard Афанасий Никитин Буги Или Хождение За Три Моря Два. Overall it was a great concert.
