Due to the complicated epidemiological situation and cross-border obstacles, ASIA star John Payne will not be able to join the summer tour of the Bulgarian supergroup Intelligent Music Project. He announced this in a video message through the group’s Facebook page.
“Unfortunately, COVID-19 struck again. This created many travel restrictions for me that did not allow me to come this time. I really hoped will be able to make it and I was looking forward to this event. I wish everyone who will be on the tour to have a great time! I apologize again, but I hope to see you in the near future!”, said also Payne in the video.
Instead of John Payne people will see on stage the vocalist of another legendary rock band – Carl Sentance from Nazareth.
“The global situation is unpredictable and creates unforeseen obstacles. One came out in front of John Payne, who was preparing for our concerts until the end. We did everything possible to solve the problem that arose with him, but unfortunately things do not always depend on us. We are fully aware of the organizational risks of touring in such complicated situation, but at the same time we know that people are in dire need of good live music, so we are working at full speed for the upcoming concerts. We will have on stage another world-class artist – the Nazareth vocalist Carl Sentace, who has worked with us on the last 3 albums of the Intelligent Music Project,”, said the creator and producer of the Bulgarian supergroup Dr. Milen Vrabevski.
We remind you that in addition to the new star addition Carl Sentance, The Creation Tour of the Intelligent Music Project will include the drummer Bobby Rondinelli (Rainbow, Black Sabbath) and the current Rainbow vocalist Ronnie Romero.
