The concert with Cuca Roseta at the Festas da Erra was scheduled for this Sunday, July 31, when about half an hour after its start, the famous Portuguese singer felt ill and left the stage, being later “replaced” by the local fado singer Beatriz. fortunate.

Miguel Capucho has already reacted in a statement to what happened, thus intending to clarify the whole situation, which he regrets, also stressing that “immediately reimbursed all sums paidto the Festival Committee, after having refused to reschedule the concert, for today (Monday) or for a day to be agreed between the two parties.

In order to “save artist recovery time“, the fado singer Raquel Machado was called on stage, as well as Miguel Capucho himself, a former fado singer who played two songs.

“Although we understand the frustration of a Festival Committee which struggles a lot to carry out this kind of concert and to which we are always sensitive, there must also be a better understanding on the other side if there is has a health problem with the artists, the only safeguard that allows a postponement of the concert”, we read in the press release of the artist, who claims to have “the same commitment and love to sing for large crowds or small villages”.

Miguel Capucho also points to “the less dignified way in which the Commission has dealt with the matter”, refusing to provide further clarification on the matter and what he says is the “less dignified way”.
