During a concert in her hometown of Seville on Saturday, in which she was presenting her latest album “Conóceme”, the Eurovision 2012 diva Pastora Soler fainted, alarming the thousands of spectators in the audience. The gig had to be cancelled. Fortunately it wasn’t fatal: Pastora is now said to be doing well.

A few hours earlier, Pastora Soler was telling her fans how excited she was to perform on home turf. The gig had been sold out long before and her new album is a real hit in Spain, so she had ample reason to look forward to this live show.

However, one hour into the concert, at the end of the song “Cambiando”, which she performed with a choir, the singer fainted and fell from the small podium she was standing on. The microphone hit the floor, accentuating the fall with a thud which sent shockwaves among the spectators, who reacted in horror.

A fan video of the incident recorded the dramatic fall:

Pastora was taken backstage and although she recovered quickly and wanted to continue, her husband/manager Francis Viñolo decided that it was too risky and informed the audience that the concert had to be cancelled. It was later revealed that Pastora fainted because of high blood pressure, but the tabloid media was quick to speculate that the 35-year old singer might be pregnant.

Pastora returned to Twitter on Sunday, to reassure her fans that she was perfectly fine and to thank them for their good wishes. She blamed nerves for the incident and apologized for the gig cancellation.

We would also like to wish Pastora the best of health and a speedy return to the stage, where she belongs!

Here she is on the stage in Baku back in 2012, where she stole the show with the ballad “Quédate Conmigo”:

Viví eso en directo el pasado sábado. Fue muy chocante verla caer. Lo peor es que no nos devuelven el dinero de la entrada ni repite el concierto, al cual le quedaba la mitad.

Pastora, cuidate mucho, que nos va a cantar si te pase algo. Sobre todo si estas embarazada, deberias cuidarte mas. Salud en primer lugar, despues todo!

It’s obvious from the video that the audience was warping spacetime with their rapturous applause, and as the dimensions started ripping apart she took immediate action to stop them. Well done, Pastora, that was quick thinking. Universe saved.
