According to the Cuban Institute of Music, the concert could take place at “sometime in the year 2020”
The Cuban Institute of Music reported that the concert of the Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, supposedly scheduled for next December 28 in Havana, will not be possible.
In a brief press release, published this Saturday, the entity denied Tourism Minister Manuel Marrero, who had notified the artist's participation in the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the founding of the Villa de San Cristobal de La Habana.
"Havana will host important celebrations with renowned national and international artists, such as tenor Andrea Bocelli, who will sing in Wonder City on December 28," Marrero said from London.
Apparently, the cancellation of the concert is due to alleged “logistic limitations”.
“Among the date options that were being handled, it was valued to make the long-awaited event coincide with the end of the year celebrations, but logistic limitations prevent this great artist from being able to materialize said project,” explains the note.
Now, according to the Cuban Institute of Music, the concert of the interpreter of "I live for her" could take place at "sometime in the year 2020". For this, the Ministry of Culture is in dialogue with the Bocelli work team.
