The Roop have withdrawn from all the announced 2020 Preview Parties across Europe – including the London Eurovision Party. They will no longer be visiting London (as mentioned), Amsterdam or Madrid before the Eurovision Song Contest takes place in Rotterdam, this May.
The Lithuanian Head of Delegation, Audrius Girzadas, had the following to say:
“It is a pity that we have to postpone the long-planned travel of our representatives, but such a decision is the only right step in this case. In the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic, we have to be responsible and to avoid risks and visits to foreign countries as much as possible.”
Like Israel, Lithuania will also not travel to The Netherlands to film their Postcard ahead of the Contest in Rotterdam.
