PR dla Zagranicy
A concert of Polish music organised by public broadcaster TVP in the southern city of Kielce which was announced on Friday has been cancelled by the host city.
The deputy mayor of Kielce, Andrzej Sygut, said on Monday that the city would not be hosting the “National Concert of Polish Song” on 10 June.
He said that a joint press conference would be held on Tuesday by Kielce City Hall and TVP to explain the decision.
Sygut added that the amphitheatre in Kielce, where the concert was set to be held, would be hosting a comedy routine on the second weekend of June in line with earlier plans.
The concert’s cancellation comes just days after another city broke off the contract to hold a major music event with TVP.
Opole, in southern Poland, terminated the deal with the broadcaster after music legend Maryla Rodowicz – who was due to mark her 50th year on the Polish stage – and a number of other stars said they would not perform. (rg)
