St. PETERSBURG, December 13. /TASS/. Concert of the world-famous British violinist Vanessa-Mae, who was expected to perform in St Petersburg on December 13, was cancelled at the eleventh hour, executives at the Oktyabrsky grand concert hall said on Sunday night.
They said ticket offices would receive the tickets back pay reimbursements through to December 23, they said.
“We bring our apologies for this inconvenience,” the directorate of the concert hall said.
In the meantime, Vanessa-Mae’s manager Giles Holland said the concert in St Petersburg was cancelled because of the performer’s conflict with the promoter agency, Moschetti World Entertainment, which was said to have failed on its obligations.
Executives of Crocus City Hall center where the violinist gives a concert on December 14 said in a report quoting her official statement.
She said she was sorry the concert had been cancelled and she would be unable to meet with thousands of her fans in St Petersburg.
At the time of reporting, the problem with the promoters had been resolved and Vanessa-May had gotten a new promoter agency.
“She has already arrived in Moscow and her concert for tomorrow is confirmed,” Crocus City Hall said.
