Aiai Delas Alas, devastated after cancellation of pre-Valentines Day concert
Low volume of tickets sold. Lack of preparation. Unpaid venue and artists. These are the alleged reasons as to why the concert of Aiai Delas Alas was cancelledThursday, February 12, 2015
In this photo posted by TV5 showbiz reporter MJ Marfori, Comedy Queen Aiai Delas Alas looked devastated after her pre-Valentine's Day concert got cancelled a day before.
According to the comedy-concert Queen, the concert, which was supposed to happen tonight in Solaire, was cancelled because the concert producer wasn't being honest to her. The venue as well as the artists performing for the show were not paid yet.
Delas Alas said that she will make it up to her fans as she's planning to stage a concert for FREE on May 16 which she will produce herself.
But according to Jacob Fernandez, the producer of the said concert, these are all lies.
“Hindi totoo ‘yan! Matagal na akong nagsu-show sa Solaire and meron kaming mga arrangements with Solaire. Meron kaming arrangements for that. Ang production crew, pagkatapos ng show saka kayo babayaran, so bakit bigla kong babayaran agad? So, siguro na-misinterpret lang."
“Nung pagdating lang ni Pope (January) kami parang nag-start sa show ni Ms. Ai-Ai... kaya kulang talaga sa preparation. Siyempre, Comedy Concert Queen siya, gusto natin bonggang-bongga yung concert, di ba, tapos nagpalit pa kami ng guest, so feeling ko, kulang talaga sa preparation.
Apparently, Fernandez was pointing the lack of the time to prepare for the concert as the main reason of the cancellation. He also dismissed reports that the number of tickets sold was low
Delas Alas and Fernandez haven't talked personally to each other as of the moment.
