Actual closing concert suspended

A positive in COVID-19 in the team of the artist María José Llergo forces to cancel her performance in the cycle ‘Great Concerts’ of the Riojaforum auditorium

The culmination of the Actual 2022 festival will be the cancellation of the last concert. The performance of María José Llergo that should be held this Saturday in the Riojaforum auditorium is suspended due, according to the organization, “to the notification of a positive case due to COVID in the artist’s team.” Although it is the first cancellation in the program with the festival started and already in its final stretch, previously the concerts in the Fundición and Stereo rooms, the ‘Vermú’ sessions at Bodegas Franco Españolas and the movie marathon were dispensed with.

The artist, along the lines of the equally Cordovan India Martínez, was going to present her album ‘Sanación’ as the final session of the cycle ‘Grandes Conciertos’. But his fusion of flamenco and electronics will have to wait. The organization of Actual has informed that the process of returning the tickets to the spectators who had acquired them through the same channels through which they were purchased has begun and clarifies that it will not schedule a replacement show.

In addition to starring in the closing concert of the festival, María José Llergo was going to receive one of the ‘A de Actual’ awards at the gala scheduled to be held this Saturday. And although in agreement with the artist and her team “it has been chosen not to be present at these events and thus prioritize health safety”, from the festival they confirm that the award will be maintained, as well as transmitting “the best wishes for a speedy recovery of the affected case.

While the ‘Vermú’ at Bodegas Franco Españolas de Actual is intended to recover in the next month of June, it is not known whether it will be decided to definitively cancel or postpone the María José Llergo concert. The suspension of the last concert joins the irregular influx of public in this edition of the Actual festival that, except for those full of Ariel Rot and Nathy Peluso in the auditorium and Rodrigo Cuevas and Rigoberta Bandini in the chamber room, in the rest of Proposals has had a number of viewers sometimes well below expectations or desirable.
