Show them the money
The likeliest reason for a concert to be called off is when the performing artiste is not paid on time, said LAMC's co-owner Lauretta Alabons.
"It's standard procedure. If you don't pay the artistes, they won't have confidence in the show."
In this case, 1 World Festival organiser Retfar said all artists have been paid in full.
Visas and genres
Sometimes artistes encounter problems entering Singapore if they don't have the required visa, said Midas Promotions director Steven Woodward.
There are also occasions when they are not allowed to play because of their genre of music, added Live! Empire's managing director Rudy De Rozario.
"If their songs contain lots of vulgarities, or if they are a death metal band, they might face roadblocks," he said.
