- THE GALLO
The following is a comment from Lulu.
I’m sorry to have to announce such surprising news to everyone.
I have my reasons for leaving, but I cannot talk about them right now.
I have come to this conclusion after a lot of worry and thought.
It was difficult to come to this decision during the tour, but everything that I have said and played over the last few days has been true.
Up until then I will still be Lulu, ThE GALLO’s guitarist.
Although I want to tell you why I’m leaving, I can’t. It would take too long to explain.
This will be the last CD release and tour for me. I don’t think I could stand onstage again.
It’s hard to express how I feel about thinking that this will be the last time I play onstage.
I hope you all understand and accept my reasons for leaving.
To all our fans and staff who support me until the end, I’ll do my best play with all my might onstage. Thank you all so much for everything.
