Concert ni Psy sa Pilipinas ngayong Disyembre, 'di na matutuloy

December 18, 2012 7:31pm

(Updated 12:45 pm Miyerkules) Hindi na matutuloy ang inaabangang concert sa bansa ng Korean Pop sensation na si Psy na gaganapin sana ngayong Disyembre 20, 2012 sa Mall Of Asia.

Sa opisyal na pahayag nina Joed Serrano ng That's Ntertainment at Renen de Guia ng Ovation Productions, sa halip na sa Disyembre ay idaraos na lamang ang concert ni Psy sa Pebrero 2013.

"The organizers of the Gangnam Style event on December 20, 2012 at MOA Arena have collectively agreed to postpone the event to February 2013 due to logistical issues," nakasaad sa pahayag na inilabas Martes ng gabi, dalawang araw bago ang nakatakdang konsyerto.

Idinagdag pa nito na, "Psy remains extremely excited about visiting the Philippines and looks forward to performing for his fans in early 2013."

Nang tanungin ng GMA News Online nitong Miyerkules tungkol sa dahilan ng pag-postpone ng concert, ito ang pinadalang text message ng mga organizers: "Flight issues. Walang makuha na sked ang entourage, meaning, Psy will arrive in Manila on December 20 but not with his dancers. Wala pang confirmed departure date sila."

Una rito, inihayag ni Serrano noong nakaraang linggo na kasama sa plano sa Psy concert na magbahagi ng tulong sa mga naging biktima ng bagyong Pablo.

"Actually we're doing this, may beneficiary na kami bago pa dumating yung victims ng typhoon Pablo. Part of the proceeds will go to the Ciara Marie foundation. Ito 'yung mga batang nangangailangan ng tulong sa pagpapa-opera pag may sakit," ayon kay Serrano. (Basahin: Concert ni Psy sa Manila, tutulong sa mga batang may sakit at 'Pablo' victims)

Paliwanag pa niya, si Psy mismo ang humiling na magkaroon ng benepisyaryo sa kanyang concert dito sa bansa.

"Kasi yon 'yong gusto ni Psy. Kailangan pag nagco-concert siya, meron siyang beneficiary," kwento niya. -- Mac Macapendeg/FRJ/KDM, GMA News
