Selena’s Legacy Will Be Honored With A May Concert In San Antonio
San Antonio will play host to a Selena Quintanilla tribute concert headlined by Pitbull that will celebrate the Tejano music legend's legacy 25 years after her death in 1995.
Other performers include Los Tucanes de Tijuana, A.B. Quintanilla III y Los Kumbia Allstarz, Becky G, Elida y Avante, Ruben Ramos, Pete Astudillo, Gilbert Velasquez, Ricardo Castillon, Ally Brooke, Isabel Marie and The L'ab.
The one-night only concert honoring Selena will be held from noon-11:45 p.m. May 9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. Tickets will go on sale at noon on Tuesday, and they range from $40-$200. The Quintanilla family told Corpus Christi officials in October that Fiesta de la Flor, a celebration of Selena's music held in the Texas city for five years, would not take place there in 2020.
Selena's siblings, Suzette and A.B. Quintanilla III, San Antonio's mayor Ron Nirenberg, Alamodome General Manager Stephen Zito and Visit San Antonio Vice President Andres Munoz made the announcement Tuesday morning.
Mayor Ron Nirenberg said, “it’s an exciting day for San Antonio.”
“The tribute concert will certainly have great meaning to the millions of Selena fans all over the world,” he said. “We welcome all to join us here in San Antonio, Texas, on May 9 as we pay tribute to the most celebrated Mexican-American entertainer of our lifetimes, and that is Selena.”
Earlier this year, Q Productions announced the cancellation of the “Fiesta De La Flor” festival in Corpus Christi.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Selena’s death and many celebrations will be held in her honor, including a Selena night at the April 3 Spurs game.
