He also added that Sarah Brightman will give a concert in Moscow in February 2014, “her admirers will be able to see her in February. But our ‘space” meeting is not scheduled so far”, – he specified.

After her World tour Brightman is waited in Russia for additional medical check, Medical Commission for Cosmonauts selection secretary , RAS Institute for biomedical Problems Elena Dobrokvashina reported earlier.

The check already passed by Brightman is valid within a year. Every cosmonaut passes it twice. May be not in full scale but some elements of the check.

She pointed out the she’ll be glad to greet the singer in the institute.

“Sarah Brightman is a very positive person, very pleasant. And we’ll be very glad to see her again.

I am afraid that due to her serious tour she could have lost her physical conditions” – Dobrokvashina concluded.
