Adryanto Pratono, CEO of Juni Suara Kreasi as the concert’s organizer, said in a statement, “We prioritize the safety and health of everyone who is involved in the concert, including the concert-goers. It is also important for us to heed the recommendations of the Jakarta administration [on mass gatherings].”
In the statement, Raisa sent a message for everyone to stay healthy and urged them to support all affected industries, including entertainment and music.
Loket as the concert’s official ticketing partner will send emails to all ticket holders on Friday, containing details of the new concert date.
The Raisa Live in Concert will mark the first time an Indonesian female singer has performed a solo concert in the stadium. It will also be the 10th anniversary of Raisa’s first single, “Serba Salah”.
In early December last year, 10,000 tickets for the concert sold out within 14 hours. Tickets for several categories, such as Festival A and B, sold out within two hours.
Gelora Bung Karno Stadium has a capacity of 50,000 people. Only three Indonesian acts have performed at the stadium in solo concerts: Kantata Takwa in June 1990, Kantata Barock in December 2011 and Slank in December 2018. International artists that have held shows there include One Direction, Metallica, Ed Sheeran and Guns N’ Roses.
Raisa has released three studio albums since 2011 and received numerous awards, including seven awards from the Indonesian Music Awards (AMI) in 2016 for Best Album, Best Pop Album and Best Pop Female Solo Artist, among other categories. Her newest single, “Teristimewa”, was released in February. (wng)
