Singer Enrique Banbury (Zaragoza, 54), immersed in his last tour (The Last Tour) in the US and Spain, announces that he is no longer giving up on himself. “A few days ago we started the first show of this farewell tour in New York, continuing in Atlanta. Both were (sic) fabulous concerts, both from the audience and from our side, I think I can say with some pride,” Banbury said in a statement. Despite his good mood, Banbury’s throat does not allow him to continue, and he hurries to say goodbye to the stage.
Whoever the sinuous voice of Heroes del Silencio is, he announced in February, in the middle of a difficult tour of Mexico, that his artistic career was coming to an abrupt and premature end due to problems with his voice, at least as far as live performances are concerned. . “The reality is that my throat is blocked and irritated, and my airways make even the slightest exercise and doing my job difficult,” he said at the time in a statement. However, Banbury kept some shows already scheduled in Spain and the US and as a farewell until September 2022. This cannot be.
At a concert in New York, he gathered 3,300 people at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn to browse his entire discography, starting with the first single from the album Héroes del Silencio, published in 1987. Musician from Zaragoza. Hence the distrust of many present at the farewell speech that ended the concert: “Don’t forget about us. See you always,” EL PAÍS New York correspondent Maria Antonia Sánchez-Vallejo said. But when they arrived in the city of Chicago, a day after the concert at Rosemont, the artist realized that in spite of his best efforts, in spite of the fact that he had scheduled concerts with a calm frequency to give his voice a rest, he could not continue.
These setbacks are not new for the artist, as they date back to the 2015-16 tour, when he began to feel the discomfort that accompanied him throughout the day and not only when entering the stage. But during the pandemic break, when his body and throat were rested, he thought he might have recovered. Returning to his old habits, he found that everything was a mirage.
“My throat and breathing problems got worse and returned abruptly last night, and what I thought would be controlled is completely out of my hands and desires,” the artist said in a statement. In view of the recurring problems, Banbury succumbed to the evidence. He doesn’t want to do more individual cancellations or postpone performances: “With all the pain in my heart, I have to anticipate what I already saw as inevitable. I can’t do more concerts.”
Purchased tickets can be returned and refunded at the places where they were purchased. Despite the fact that Banbury was forced to withdraw from concerts where the artist’s nature as a purely stage animal, full of attitude, charisma and theatricality, manifested itself, Banbury promised to continue to actively compose, record and write poetry.
