The Spanish singer Enrique Bunbury announced this Saturday that he will leave the stage earlier than expected. The Zaragoza-born artist announced that he will cancel his last tour, which he had just started in the United States, because his throat problems worsened.
Through a statement released through his social networks, Bunbury announced the news and assured that his state of health is not optimal to offer the concerts he had planned for his last tour before official retirement.
“Unfortunately, today, in Chicago, one day before the Rosemont show, we have to announce that we will not be able to continue with the tour. My throat and breathing problems increased and came back sharply last night and what I thought was going to be under control is totally out of my hands and desire,” the statement read.
Given the seriousness of his health and despite having other concerts scheduled, the renowned artist assured that “with all the pain in my heart” he will have to anticipate what he already considered imminent. “It is impossible for me to do more concerts.”
After the cancellation, he apologized to his followers. “I understand that many of you bought tickets, for a North American tour that was already sold out and a Spanish tour that aimed at the same thing. You can return the tickets where you bought them.
Bunbury had announced last February his withdrawal from the stage due to health problems, and assured that despite this situation he planned to continue with his creative activity of composition, recording or writing.
At the beginning of the year, the artist revealed that for years he has had a “discomfort” that has “cost him a lot to locate and understand.” Specifically, he believes that since the ‘Mutaciones’ tour between 2015 and 2016, he began with his health problems, which worsened on the ‘Expectactivas’ tour, between 2017 and 2019.
“In these 35 years, I have been on the best stages in the world and some of the worst, I have performed in front of 25 people and 250,000, and in most of them, I have been fortunate to enjoy a time in which No masks or cell phones were visible. Sincere thanks!” he said in February.
