A few hours before the concert began, the stage where Gloria Trevi would sing collapsed. The platform was located in the facilities of the baseball field in the Library Services Unit (USBI), in Xalapa.
After circulating photos on social networks about the spectacular accident, the singer spoke through a video on her Instagram account and clarified that there was no fatality or injury after the crash.
“Today (Saturday) has been a very intense one, literally the structure of the stage fell to present Isla Divina here in Xalapa and the truth is something that we did not expect, but nobody is exempt from an accident. Thank God there were no injuries, which is the most important thing, no one from the staff, no one on stage, “he said in the video.
The interpreter of hits such as “Todos me miran” and “Loose hair” pointed out that the structure was completely new. There, she would present her show Isla Divina.
The show must go on
After what happened, Trevi emphasized that his staff built an alternate stage to fulfill the presentation, for which he improvised an original show, which he performed yesterday at 11:30 p.m.
“Yes, we are going to see each other, because I have told them that we must move on, that we do not give up. We are going to present ourselves today (yesterday) at night here in Xalapa, in the middle of the storm, against all odds”, he explained.
“It will not be able to be ‘Isla divina’ because the stage was destroyed, but I want to thank the staff guys who raised the stage in another area for an alternative concert,” he added.
Although at the moment the causes of why the structure collapsed are unknown, network users asked to delimit responsibilities and were grateful that the concert had not started.
