Regine Velasquez clarifies her no-show at Canada concert

Regine Velasquez, a no-show at her concert in Canada? This was the issue that hogged showbiz headlines for quite a while. Regine was supposed to perform in Canada last August 31, and all the tickets had already been sold out. But on the night of the concert, Asia's Songbird was nowhere in sight. Regine explains her side on the said issue.

Boy: Sabi raw ng iyong producer, Regine, na mataas daw ang iyong kontrata, mahal daw ang bayad sayo kaya hindi ka nakarating sa Toronto, Canada nung August 31.

Regine: Then why did they get me in the first place? Pinirmahan nila yung kontrata, pinirmahan ko yung kontrata…so bakit nila ko kinuha in the first place kung namamahalan pala sila.

Kris: Hindi sila nagbayad? Nag-down?

Regine: Hindi sila nagbayad, hindi sila nag-down. As a mater of fact, I even had to pay my musicians para lang mag-rehearse kami, and to shell out something like 12 thousand dollars, that my own money. Hindi po ganon kadali maglabas ng 12 thousand dollars, hindi ako mayaman!

Boy: Regine, bakit ganito ang trato na binibigay sayo ng producer?

Regine: I have no idea actually, I've met this guy, his name is Ernest Quinto Junior. He's a very nice guy, he's 23. Mukhang ok naman siya kausap that's why I said yes to the show.

Boy: Binigyan mo ba sila ng pagakakaton na mahabol yung payment scheme?

Regine: Oh yeah! Wala silang nabigay. A week before the concert binigyan namin sila ng chance, meron kaming lawyer don, sabi nung lawyer mayber the best thing to do is just to open a bank account there kasi hindi na aabot dito yung pera. Para mas madali, siya na yung maniningil. They didn't even wanna recognize the lawyer that I have there. Inamin naman nila sa kin na a week before na wala silang pera.

Boy: Pero sold out yung concert! Saan nila dinala ang pera?

Regine: Hindi ko alam kung saan dinala. Ang sabi ko na lang, promissory note na lang na nakalagay sa sulat na as soon as we get there we will be paid the whole amount. We all went to the airport. Hinihintay namin yung producers na I-fax nila yung promisory note na magbabayad sila. Walang dumating.

Boy: Ang malungkot dito mga kaibigan, usually ang artists ang nasisisi.

Regine: I just wanna say sorry sa mga lahat ng mga tao na bumili ng tickets. Sorry po hindi ako nakarating, hindi ko po talaga gusto na hindi makarating. As a matter of fact nung Friday po, the whole band and myself, we all went to the aiprot. Hinihintay namin yung producers na ifax nila yung promisory note na magbabayad sila... walang dumating. To the producer, I'm sure he's a nice guy. Naawa rin ako sa kanila kasi binayaran na rin nila yung venue, yung hotels, yung airfare. Ang tanong ko lang, bakit ako yung ginagawa niyong dahilan. Kasi ang sinsabi nila reputation ko yon. I'm a no-show. First of all Ernest, just to let you know, I have been in this business for a long time, hindi ako magtatagal sa business na to if I'm a no-show. I've worked so hard for my name, hindi ako sasagot sa isang show, tapos hindi ako sisipot for no reason at all. Ke libre, ke may bayad, pag sinabi kong dadating ako, dadating ako don. I have never cancelled a show in my entire career unless may problema talaga.
