"With deep regret, we are informing all music lovers that he (Julio Iglesias) has canceled his concert in Nusa Dua," Abby Krisnamurti, an official of Trans Event, the organizer of the concert, told the media here on Tuesday.
He noted that Julio Iglesias managers did not give further details about the cancellation. The Spanish singer has also canceled his tour of New Zealand.
"As a sponsor, we have been 100 percent ready for the event. All logistics and technical production arrangements as well as hospitality aspects were in place as per Julios request. That also included all the vendors and hotels which were ready to welcome them," he added.
Abby expressed disappointment at the cancellation since the event was expected to attract tourists to Bali.
"We came to know about the cancellation when we contacted Four Seasons Hotel, which informed us that Julio Iglesias has canceled the reservations for November 10-15," he revealed.
Abby said Julios management has yet to provide clear information about the reasons for cancellation.The management apologized and expressed disappointment through a media teleconference for not being able to perform in Bali.
"Modes of issuing refunds for tickets will be explained directly by ticket management company, Cognitix. We will refund 100 percent of the tickets price," he assured.(*)
