CATALAN singer, Sergio Dalma urged his audience to ignore social distancing guidelines amid a new coronavirus spike in Spain. 

The musician was forced to suspend his gig by organisers after he stopped his set three times in order to instruct fans to break the rules and get out of their seats during his concert in Murcia on Sunday. 

Te Amo star Sergio performed as part of the Noches del Malecón series but things turned sour when he encouraged audience members to ignore the restrictions and stand up from their seats during the show. 

The 56-year-old singer tried to resist safety measures, telling the audience:: “We are going to interrupt the concert every time they tell someone to sit down.” 

As part of the current COVID-19 regulations in Spain all concertgoers must remain seated at a safe distance and wear a mask at all times. 

Sergio later apologised for encouraging fans to get out of their seats, despite the clear COVID-19 guidelines for live events. 

“I got over excited trying to make everyone enjoy the concert and encouraged them to get up from their seats but always wearing a mask,” he said.

He told fans that his concert ‘was not adequate’ but urged them to not take any further stance against COVID measures. 

The singer said he did not deny the severity of COVID but said: “I wanted people to get up from their seats to enjoy some of my songs.

“But I have had the complete vaccine schedule for months and I always wear a mask.” 

“My performance yesterday was not adequate and of course I apologise for that.” 

The organisers behind the event said they had no choice but to suspend the performance. 

In a statement released on Twitter concert bosses said: “We could not let it be different on our last night especially as  the rules have been very clear since the beginning of the concert cycle”.

“We know that it was not the night you were waiting for, but it has not been for us either.”
