Safura, the Azerbaijan singer in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest is currently undertaking an extensive European promotional campaign. Her busy schedule has already included visits to several cities in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands and will continue with visits to Switzerland, Poland and Russia. The scheduled promotional trip to Greece has been cancelled due to the current protests in Athens relating to the planned austerity measures.
The promotional tour started in the German cities of Munich, Cologne, Berlin and Hamburg where Safura was interviewed by some of the biggest German newspapers and radio stations. Safura's trip to Germany gave her the chance to experience her first ever train journey. Speaking of this experience Safura said I never was on a train before, I've had so much fun to look through windows! Germany is amazingly beautiful,Her trip moved on to Belgium on 4th of May where she was interview by Dag Allemaal, a leading Belgium magazine and later appeared live on TV on the GUNK-TV station in Brussels. The promotional tour then moved on to Amsterdam in the Netherlands for another round of interviews and photo shoots for the singer.
Later on this week Safura was due to continue her promotional tour with a four day visit to Greece. This was now been canceled due to the violent protests in Athens relating to the planned austerity measures. She was scheduled to appear on several TV shows on MAD TV, STAR Channel, ALPHA TV, MEGA Channel and ALTER TV channels. The trip to Greece was also to include a visit to the recording studio to meet with Dimitris Kontopoulos, the composer of This is our night, the Greek song performed by Sakis Rouvas in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009. Safura was planning to record a new track for her debut album called Please Don't Let the Morning Come. Another casualty of this cancellation is Safura's plan to meet with her follow competitor George Alkaios, the Greek singer at the Eurovision Song Contest. Safura and her team expressed sorrow from the tragic events taking place in Athens. Greece was a very important country in singer's promo tour schedule but social and political situation made this trip impossible. Safura sends all the best wishes to her Greek fans and hopes that all conflicts will be solved in near future. Safura hopes to visit the Greek islands after Eurovision 2010 for her summer holidays.
Safura will continue with her promo tour with visits to Switzerland, Poland and Russia. Updates on Safura's schedule and all news about the tour can be found on:
