In this sense, he has criticized the "parties in chalets or private spaces" which are "more difficult to attack from the security forces" and that "may be overcoming that control situation, but not that of contagions and other consequences most terrible ".

The performance of Nacho Cano in the Puerta del Sol, with a single song, will have no cost for the Madrid City Council or commercial purpose, remarked the councilor, who explained that it was the Consistory, which participates in the organization of the event, which contacted the musician for this tribute to Spanish society.
