An announcement posted on his official website on October 19 said that the concert will still push through on December 9, Sunday, but will be held in a different venue.
“The Mall of Asia Arena management, with its commitment in providing its patrons with choice entertainment, has exhausted all measures for the show to push through. However, we recognize and respect the fact that the show’s cancellation is the artist’s own decision,” the statement said.
Daytec-Yangot was said to have posted this message via Facebook: “I wrote a letter to Sting’s agents appealing that they abandon SM Mall of Asia Arena as the venue for the musician’s December concert. Sting, a voice of the oppressed, cannot sing in the halls of an oppressor!”
The news release further noted that MOAA representatives have appealed to Sting to keep the concert in their venue insisting that they have nothing to do with the issue despite their company’s relation to the Baguio mall.
