Jorge - I do realise that the news of Mike's appearance has been mentioned in some newspapers (I think there was another, other than La Voz de Galicia, wasn't there?), but some fans were still not totally convinced that it was going to happen (it was also mentioned in at least German newspaper that Mike would appear in Hanover, I believe). Newspapers almost always just print whatever information they're given by the organisers - they won't have checked the news with anyone at OML.
That was the reason I checked it with Fanny - I assumed that she would be able to give a conclusive answer. Fans were asking for a confirmation/denial of the news, from someone close to Mike, and that's what we got!
So what we're left with is two sources - the organisers of Xacobeo, who say that Mike will appear and are keenly telling all the press that, and Fanny at OML who says she's not even heard about the concert. They can't both be right...
What can I say? If people want to make a trip to see Luar Na Lubre in the hope that Mike may also appear, then believe the organisers. I don't want to be responsible for people feeling disappointed because they've missed seeing Mike because our news turned out to be false, so if you feel like taking the chance, go and see it. It will no doubt be a great concert, even without Mike.
However, if people make a special trip, and it turns out that Mike doesn't appear, as this news from Fanny seems to indicate, then please don't be angry at Mike - he's never said himself that he will be appearing, and it seems like maybe he doesn't even know that people think he will.
I've altered the news item to reflect the fact that there is still doubt over this.
