This comes a few days after Ben&Ben cancelled its earlier show in Surigao City, when its other lead singer and Paolo’s twin brother Miguel Benjamin Guico tested positive for COVID-19.
“Ikinalulungkot naming sabihing ‘di kami matutuloy sa show natin sa Surigao this June 26. Positive si Migs sa COVID-19. Don’t worry, okay naman kami, pero para sa safety nating lahat, naka-isolate lang muna siya,” the band told fans at the time.
(We are saddened to say that we can no longer push through with our show in Surigao this June 26. Migs is positive for COVID-19. Don’t worry, we are okay, but for everyone’s safety, he is isolating.)
