Miley Cyrus has confirmed that she, her team, and various loved ones are safe after encountering dangerous weather during their recent trip to Asunción, Paraguay.
The well-known singer was originally set to open the second day of Asunciónico — a music festival that takes place annually in Paraguay’s capital city — but said her plane was struck by a lighting and forced an emergency landing.
Miley shared a frightening video recorded while she was on board. Later, she shared a photo taken after landing in which is showed the damage to one wing of the plane.
“To my fans and everyone worried after hearing about my flight to Asunción. Our plane was caught in a major unexpected storm and struck by lighting,” she wrote in the caption. “My crew, band, friends, and family who were all traveling with me are safe after an emergency landing. We were unfortunately unable to fly into Paraguay. I LOVE YOU.”
Following initial show cancellations yesterday due to flooding, Asunciónico officially deleted the rest of its scheduled performance lineup this morning, citing severe weather conditions. The festival said more information about ticket refunds will be available early next week.
Yesterday’s weather-related cancellations prevented artists like Doja Cat and Machine Gun Kelly from performing on stage at Asunciónico.
