Disagreement between Joss Stone, agent and Rock in Rio caused the show to be canceled at the festival
show of Joss Stone at the Rock in Rio was canceled by mistake. Singer was scheduled for September 8, at the Sunset Stage. Jessie J, who performed at the last edition of the festival, in 2019, will be the substitute. The advisory informed that cancellation was for personal reasons, but stone explained the situation to the public on social media.
“Dear Brazilian fans, I’m so sad to say that I won’t be playing the Rock in Rio. Not by any choice of mine. My manager mistakenly led the event’s producer to believe that I couldn’t play at the festival. So of course he had to replace me so you all could have fun and listen to some good music,” he said on Facebook (via The globe).
Last Thursday, the singer announced a show in São Paulo on a date far from the festival, on June 1st. KT Tunstall will open the event. Rock in Rio announced replacement by Jessie J after two days, on Saturday.
This would be her second performance at the festival – she participated in the 2011 edition – and she intends to return after a miscommunication in 2022: “The truth is that my agent made some decisions for me and not with me. I’m very upset about not playing at the festival this year as I’ve looked forward to it and will continue to look forward to the next opportunity to play something so wonderful.”
Joss took the opportunity to praise Jessie J and wish the Brazilian fans a good show.
