Nagpadala ng official statement ang Viva Artist Agency (VAA), na pinamumunuan ni Veronique del Rosario-Corpuz, kaugnay sa hindi pagpunta ng artists ng VAA sa scheduled shows nila sa Los Angeles at San Francisco, California.
Ipinadala sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang official statement na ito ng PR man ng VAA na si Duds Santiago, kahapon, November 17, bandang 4 p.m., sa pamamagitan ng e-mail.
Ito ang nilalaman ng official statement ng VAA:
"VIVA Artists Agency (VAA) deeply regrets to announce that it has decided to pull out its stars Anne Curtis, Cristine Reyes and Mark Bautista from a series of shows billed as ’Handog Pasasalamat (A Thanksgiving Unity Concert)’ scheduled to be mounted in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, U.S.A. on November 18 and 19, 2011.
"The decision was made due to the failure of the show’s producers to comply with many crucial contractual obligations.
"Said failure compromises the security and welfare of the artists and their entourage, which is of paramount importance to VAA.
"VAA has a long history of successful shows in the US that proceeded without encountering any unfortunate incidents, such as this one.
"It sincerely apologizes to the fans who have been looking forward to seeing Anne, Cristine and Mark live on the aforementioned shows.
"Anne’s fans can expect to see her next year when she holds her solo concert tour."
