British pop star Dua Lipa concerned about the possible financial crisis which affects the music industry after postponing and delaying live concerts due to coronavirus outbreak.
Grammy Award-winning singer who uses her Instagram page to address which in the financial problem caused by the cancellation of live concerts, shows, and events, expressed the urgency of financial support from the government to help British artists and the UK music industry including all the crew who work so hard behind the scenes.
“I miss this so much! I’m so grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given. Now it’s time to pay back to the incredible people who make up the UK music industry including all the crew who work so hard behind the scenes. From the very start of my own career, playing live concerts up and down the country has been a cornerstone for my own career.”
She argued that the government must find a solution to overcome as soon as possible this potential financial crisis. She continued:
“I am proud to have had the chance to play through all the levels…small clubs, then theatres and ballrooms and into arenas, and of course festivals in between each touring cycle. But the possibility for other emerging British artists to take the same path is in danger and the livelihoods of those who work behind the scenes are at risk.
The industry urgently needs Govt support in the interim period before all the various venues, festivals & promoters are ready and able to operate independently again. #LetTheMusicPlay”
