With a broken heart emoticon, the singer also added, “My crew, band, friends and family who were all travelling with me are safe after an emergency landing. We were, unfortunately, unable to fly into Paraguay. I LOVE YOU.”
According to the festival’s website, Asunciónico is “one of Paraguay’s largest rock festivals” typically held every March. Local reports say Cyrus’ performance was expected to draw a big crowd.
Cyrus got the show on the road by performing in South America. Over the weekend, the pop star attended the Lollapalooza Argentina and Lollapalooza Chile where she brought the house down with an electrifying performance to some some of her biggest hits.
