The reported solo Philippine concert tour by Jessica Sanchez, the runner-up in the eleventh season of "American Idol', is not yet official but the group tour scheduled for September 21 has been confirmed by the promoter of the show
This was clarified by Renen de Guia, head of Ovation Productions and promoter of the "American Idol" group tour scheduled for September 21 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
In the article carried by the Philippine Daily Inquirer and its news website on June 19, which is the source of an article by Digital Journal on the planned solo concert tour, the writer quoted a source confirming the planned solo concert.
De Guia told the writer in a subsequent article; "“There is no truth to the news item you put out the other day (June 19) in the Inquirer on Jessica Sanchez’ performing in 5 cities in the Philippines after American Idol Jessica’s management company, 19 Entertainment has tweeted the following: ‘Contrary to many false reports, @JSanchezAI11′s ONLY performance in the Philippines will be 9/21 in Manila as part of the Idol Live Tour.’”
It turned out, there is another promoter trying to negotiate for Jessica Sanchez' solo concert tour but no official announcements have been made yet by Ovation Promotions or the other promoter.
The 16-years-old Sanchez is getting more popular as promoters of the nation's biggest sports events have engaged the Filipino/Mexican-American singing sensation to sing the National Anthem in their opening ceremonies.
Sanchez has recently performed at the opening of the NBA finals featuring Miami Heat and Oklahoma Thunder.
In Las Vegas, she graced the Pacquiao-Bradley fight with her rendition of the National Anthem before some 15,000 live audience at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and the millions of boxing fans from around the world watching the telecast from the US.
