León Larregui responds to accusations of playback

Music news

His presentation at Crown Capital with Phoenix has been criticized by fans.

Leon larregui again sounds in controversy after its presentation in the Crown Capital with the band phoenix. They recently released their collaboration “Artifact”, a reissue of the last album by the French band, who would visit Mexico, with a possible cameo by Lion in his show.

The live collaboration became a reality, because in their set they announced Leon larregui as a special guest, to which many reacted as unexpected. As soon as he got on stage, a change in the melody was noticed, which started rumors of the singer doing playback of “Artifact”.

As expected, Lion responded to the accusations by saying that he has no control over what the band’s team selects during the concert, since it is not Zoe nor his solitary project. Furthermore, he stated that in his career he has only used this “dishonorable resource” five times and that it has only been in emergencies. He even asked people not to detract from such an important moment for a Mexican musician in front of an international festival.

Although the doubt still remains and the answers of Larregui were already eliminated, the moment seemed to be special for phoenixwhich continued with one of the most unforgettable sets of the festival.
