¡¡ATENCIÓN!! SAM THE SHAM CANCELA SU VISITA A SURFORAMA

Nos duele enormemente tener que daros la siguiente noticia. Debido a un empeoramiento de la salud de Sam the Sham, el legendario creador del “Wooly bully” no puede realizar su viaje a España para actuar en el Surforama.

Durante los últimos meses Sam estaba entusiasmado con esta visita a nuestro país. Él se sentía con fuerzas y todo estaba a punto con su guitarrista americano y su banda de respaldo, el combo británico MFC Chicken. Pero con 81 años las cosas pueden cambiar rápidamente y durante las últimas semanas se ha ido debilitando hasta el punto en que tanto su médico como su familia desaconsejan el viaje de forma categórica.

Este es el comunicado que hemos recibimos de su hijo:

Sam the Sham, legendary songwriter and performer, announces his retirement from touring due to age-related health issues. Acting on medical advice, Sam the Sham will focus on writing and recording his music close to home.

“It has been my privilege to perform for the public for nearly 60 years. Many thanks to my fans from around the word. I will miss getting to meet you.”

(Sam’s son Dimitrius Samudio comunicate. April 02, 2018)

Éramos conscientes del riesgo que se corre cuando intentas traer a una leyenda de esta edad a tu festival. Pero la posibilidad de poder disfrutar de su presencia y su mítico legado en el Surforama nos hizo apostar por ello.

También somos conscientes de que no hay un nombre que pueda reemplazar plenamente ésta baja en el cartel, y menos cuando falta solo un mes y medio para la celebración del evento. Las pérdidas de dinero y tiempo de trabajo son algo secundario. Es más doloroso no poder ofreceros la actuación de uno de los nombres del cartel en el que teníamos depositada la mayor de nuestras ilusiones. Aunque lo más importante, lo que deseamos de todo corazón, es que la salud de Sam mejore y este mal episodio sea solo algo pasajero.

Esperamos que entendáis las circunstancias de esta cancelación, las cuales están totalmente fuera de nuestro control. Seguimos convencidos de que esta 15ª edición va a ser algo muy especial. Tras llamar a muchas puertas en busca de una propuesta que, sin poder suplir la pérdida fuese satisfactoria, hemos sido afortunados. El fabuloso showman EL VEZ se viene al Surforama. El Vez & MFC Chicken ofrecerán un repertorio exclusivo para esta actuación y dedicado al gran Sam the Sham.

Sentimos enormemente las molestias ocasionadas. Gracias por vuestra comprensión.

ATTENTION!! SAM THE SHAM CANCELS HIS VISIT TO SURFORAMA

It is really painful for us to have to tell you such sad news. Due to a worsening of the health condition of Sam the Sham, legendary creator of “Wooly bully” cannot take his trip to Spain to act in Surforama.

In the last months Sam was thrilled of his visit to our country. He felt on top of it and everything was in order with his American guitar player and his backing band, MFC Chicken. But with 81 years things can turn around very quickly and in the last weeks he has been feeling very weak, to such extent that both his doctor and his family strongly advise against his trip to Spain.

This is the communication we received from his son

Sam the Sham, legendary songwriter and performer, announces his retirement from touring due to age-related health issues. Acting on medical advice, Sam the Sham will focus on writing and recording his music close to home.

We understood the risks taken when you try bringing a legend of this age to your festival. But the possibility of enjoying his presence and his epic legacy in Surforama made us go for it

We are also very aware that there isn’t a name with which we can fully replace this loss in the lineup, especially when there is less than a month left for the event to take place.

The time and money spent in the organization are secondary. It is more painful to us no to be able to offer you the show of one of the names in the lineup in which we had deposited a lot of our hopes. Although what really matters, and what we really hope for, is that Sam’s health will recover and this sad episode will be something of the past.

We hope you understand the circumstances of this cancelation, which are completely out of our hands. We are truly convinced that this 15th edition of Surforama will be something really special. After knocking on many doors in search for a show that, without trying to replace the loss, would be satisfactory, El Vez & MFC Chicken will offer an exclusive repertoire for this show, dedicated to the great Sam the Sham.

We are really sorry for the trouble this may cause. Thank you very much for your understanding
