We know about the existence of many Laura Pausini Tribute Bands. 

First and foremost Laura and all of us with her are very happy that these bands are taking around the name Laura Pausini besides their own professionalism.  

The only comment we would like to point out  is the question of the officialization.

We know that some of the bands are using terms as 'OFFICIAL' or 'UFFICIALE' to define themselves as a band that we recognized.

Laura has never wanted to formalize ANY band NOT to take distance from these initiatives but NOT HAVING TO CHOOSE a band in DISADVANTAGE  of the others. It also alows them to work in the music field.

We kindly request to Tribute Bands dedicated to Laura NOT to use terms as 'OFFICIAL' and 'UFFICIALE' associated with the name Laura Pausini on posters, invitations and on their websites or promotion material.

We confirm on behalf of Laura and the Fanclub all of our esteem and our support for your nowadays and future initiatives.
