“My apologies to everyone who came to the Bureaugard Festival (sic) last night, I was so disappointed to have to cut the set short,” the former lead singer of Oasis said on Twitter. “I was diagnosed today with laryngitis and the doctors prescribed me rest. Unfortunately, this means that I have to cancel my next concert in Cognac…”, he added, saying to himself “really sorry” but anxious to put his “health first”.
The news did not come as a surprise to many people. We feared this defection a little from the moment the news began to circulate on social networks that he had left the stage of the Beauregard festival near Caen on Friday evening after just twenty minutes of show. Liam Gallagher living up to his reputation as a “bad boy”.
This announcement forced the festival to recompose the program for the evening: Ash Bucher & Blue Combo will open (6:30 p.m.), followed by Tommy Castro & the Painkillers (8 p.m.); Thorbjorn Risager & The Black Tornado (9:30 p.m.); Marcus King (10:30 p.m.) and Mister Tchang and his friends (Midnight). “Paradoxically, this brings us back to the DNA of the festival for this closing evening which will be 100% blues”, comments Michel Rolland.
As a result, the organization decided to open its doors free of charge for this last evening. People who had purchased their ticket are asked to present it at the entrance (1) and for the others, a free entry will be given to them.
