British singer-songwriter Sting’s concert on Oct. 2 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum has been canceled, the show’s promoter Ovation Productions announced today on its Facebook page.
The problem, Ovation boss Renen de Guia told Inquirer, was that Sting had “multiple dates in Japan” that ran into conflict with the Philippine show date.
Tickets to the Manila date had been selling fast, with more than 50 percent sold, said Ticketnet staff.
Sting had also canceled several dates from the tour a few days ago until yesterday, July 12, citing health reasons, his own Facebook page said.
Here’s Ovation’s statement:
“We regretfully announce that Sting’s concert scheduled for October 2, 2019 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum is unfortunately canceled due to scheduling conflicts. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this development and know that Sting hopes to return to Manila soon to perform for his fans.”
