Selena Live - The Last Concert / Vimeo / @arplusfashion / Instagram

It’s been 21 years since Selena rocked the Houston Astrodome in what would be her last ever televised concert. You know, the iconic show where the stunned in that killer purple jumpsuit. Here’s a look back at one of her most amazing concerts, ever.

She entered like a true queen, in a horse drawn carriage.

Seriously. What Latino kid didn’t want their very own horse-drawn carriage after seeing La Reina rock it like a boss?

She warmed up the crowd with a disco medley and dance moves only she could do.

This was the only way anyone could get us to listen to disco.

Let’s not forget when she totally owned her wardrobe malfunction.


How many of us haven’t lost a piece of clothing while tearing up the dance floor? #SelenaProblems

She showed the world that she was so much more than just a Spanish-language musical powerhouse.


And all the little Latino kids everywhere learned that it’s totes acceptable to speak both English and Spanish… or Spanglish.

Her final concert gave us this iconic photo of La Reina.

And once that jacket came off, Selena was in full beast mode just owning the stage. ?

Giving us all the feels in the world.

We watched her shake those hips long before Shakira was even a thing in the U.S.

Not saying she is better, just a pioneer.

She made the concert feel so intimate when she softly sang “Cobarde.”
