THE on-going Marawi crisis has again taken its toll in one of the most-awaited and touted as the biggest concert in Davao City this year.
The continuing military offensives against local terrorists, the Maute Group, who attacked the Islamic City of Marawi last May 22, has given impression to international community of an unstable peace and order in Mindanao.
This is apparently the reason why organizers of the once-in-a-lifetime concert of three of the most sought-after performers in the 70's to 90's slated at SMX Convention Center in Lanang, Davao City on July 1 decided to call off the show.
The concert, dubbed as Flashback Saturday, is supposed to feature international artists El Debarge, Sybil and Kalapana.
