You may have seen the shocking news from St Petersburg yesterday as 2016 Russian artist Sergey Lazarev collapsed on stage during a live performance. We are pleased to report that Sergey is ok, he posted this photo & had this message to say to his fans on Instagram this morning.
“Dear friends! Honestly I’m really shocked about yesterday’s accident on the stage in Saint-Petersburg! I didn’t expect that my body would fail that way, especially during such an important moment, during a long-awaited concert in my beloved Saint-Petersburg.
Yes, I’m on tour for last few months, I’ve been playing in theatre, rehearsing and getting ready to represent our country in Eurovision in May – maybe all these things caused my body to fail on me and that’s a sign that I must pay more attention to looking after myself.
Dear friends, I apologize to the audience in Saint-Petersburg and Tallinn (planned concert on 10th of April) for the inconvenience due to moving my concerts to June! All the tickets are valid! So see you
Tallinn – 4th of June, Saint-Petersburg – 9th of June!
Thank you for understanding!”
We’re thrilled that Sergey is well and look forward to see him in Stockholm in few weeks time.
