Jean Michel Jarre scraps Latin America shows over dispute with promoter

Musician Jean Michel Jarre has been forced to axe a series of upcoming shows in Latin America due to a string of unresolved issues with the local promoter.
The French star took to his Facebook page on Tuesday (07Nov17) to apologise to fans with tickets for the concerts, explaining he and his management team have spent weeks trying to find solutions to problems staging the gigs.
“I am not only very sad, but very upset and very angry by the terrible situation created by Fenix Entertainment Group regarding my concerts in Latin America,” Jarre wrote.
“My team and I have spent weeks trying to find solutions to deliver these shows on time… but the current shows announced for November 9 and/or November 14 & 18 cannot be delivered…”
“We are trying very hard to find a way to reschedule these shows in Chile and Argentina, sooner rather than later, and we will keep you informed of a hopefully positive issue as soon as we can,” he added. “Once more I would like to tell you how much I personally feel so upset for the consequences you all have to endure, and I appreciate your ongoing support for me & my team.”
A spokesman adds, “We had no other choice but to announce the cancellation of the planned shows in Latin America, due to reasons far beyond our control… The reality is that there will be no shows in Chile & Argentina until we have the assurance that all the means are available for us to securely send JMJ and our team of Musicians/Management/Production/ Lighting crew/Sound engineers/Audio crew/Backliners/Video crew/Laser crew overseas… alongside the 11 tons of equipment via air freight… to deliver the best shows you all expect and deserve.”
