Just a quick update on what’s going on with LP. She arrived to Ecuador on the 7th October (Monday), however due to the unstable situation in the capital city, the band had to leave the country in less than 24 h since their arrival. The concert wouldn’t take place anyway, as the venue was opened to/occupied by (depending on the sources) the protesters.
After article for El Comercio (source), LP concert was canceled due to demonstrations; decision was undertaken by the Police Administration to suspend all public events. Company responsible for the production of the concert also explained that because of the taking of the facilities of the El Teatro Nacional de la Casa de la Cultura by the protesters, the concert of LP was canceled as a precaution to protect the attendees of the concert.
The company added that: “soon we will announce the rescheduling of these concerts. The tickets purchased will be valid for the new dates.” Karla Sanchez, head of press at CK Concerts explained that the stage at the National Theater was already prepared, and LP arrived to the country on Monday in the afternoon at the Mariscal Sucre Airport in Quito ready to perform.
LP arrived to Lima in Peru yesterday, after a very long day and some overcrowded flights in the wrong direction, however the welcome she received was so warm and almost intense, that I’m sure she felt a lot better after the cancellation of the shows and all the troubles she experienced.
I also wanted to quote @lizavillegas, who welcomed LP in Bogota & wrote few words about the concert in Colombia for the blog:
Tonight in Bogota, Colombia I went to my 4th concert of the amazing LP. It was intoxicating as always, watching her connect with the people through her songs, her smile and her whole personality and kindness. I had the pleasure to introduce my friend/neighbor to the world of LP. According to Vero, LP’s enthusiasm, energy and passion inspired her to join me from Austin to Bogota for the first but definitely not the last time! I can testify that she has officially drank the Kool-Aid and is now a super fan girl like me. I hope that this experience inspires many other fans to share the music and the craft of LP and her family.
LP said she was very exited to be there and was so emotional that we “took her breath away” and it was an honor to experience that again. As a fan club member, we worked so hard and diligently to make LP feel loved, welcome and safe in our country and we will continue to do so; I’m so blessed to be part of that. All LP’s concerts are amazing and explosive in different ways but it is my opinion that the fans of Colombia, and who we are as a people, a culture and a country will definitely bring LP back for another tour.
@lizavillegas & @veryveryveryvero my friend/neighbor
LP will resume her tour on Friday.
