Saraya Cancel Firefest Appearance
Saraya have cancelled their appearance a Firefest later this year – and the band are blaming singer Sandi Saraya.
This is what the band have to say about the decision: ‘When Kieran Dargan (Firefest promoter) first approached us with the idea of re-uniting after 20 years, we (the remaining band members) were all immediately on board. The question was whether or not Sandi, who now leads a very different and private life, would be into it. When she responded with an enthusiastic “definitely!” we were all surprised and delighted. However, nearly eight months later, and three months before the show, it seems she requires a great deal of money to do this. This is not what Firefest is about, and neither Firefest nor the remaining band members were willing to be put in such an unexpected and unpleasant position regarding the personal demands of our former singer’.
