Kontsert (Russian: Концерт; English: Concert; k; commonly corrupted to Kohuept) is the second live album by Billy Joel, released in 1987. The album was recorded during the Soviet leg of Joel's 1987 The Bridge tour. The tour made history, as it was the first live rock radio broadcast in Soviet history. 2

Joel's cover of The Beatles' "Back in the U.S.S.R." became the first single released by Joel that was written by someone other than himself. The B-side was "The Times They Are A-Changin'", Joel's live cover of Bob Dylan's song.
