“There are very uncertain times ahead given the nature of what’s going on right now. Our family truly understands everyone’s concerns about the COVID-19 virus. We’ve spent the past several days monitoring the situation and we feel that rescheduling the tribute concert for Selena is in the best interest of everyone,” Suzette Quintanilla said in a statement. “Rescheduling will give people time to feel more comfortable and bring calm and ease during this unprecedented time. We will continue to monitor the situation to select the best and most responsible date to ensure the safety of everyone coming to the event. It will still be held in San Antonio, Texas at the Alamodome.⁣

Music is taking a moment to honor Selena with a 25th-year tribute concert.

SelenaXXV is happening at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The concert is bringing together some of the biggest names in Latin music to give fans a night to remember centered around La Reina of Tejano music.

The concert is happening on Saturday, May 9 in San Antonio because texas is the only place to have this concert.

Selena’s place in Latin music history is undeniable. She was the first major Latina musician to start breaking down barriers for future Latino artists to rise in mainstream music. Her crossover songs brought our culture and experience to mainstream music audiences.

Here are a few of the artists you can expect to see at the SelenaXXV concert:

Pitbull

There’s no way you can have a tribute concert to a Latin music legend without Mr. Worldwide. The Cuban musician has spent his career bettering his community and giving Latino representation around the world. Who better to keep the hyped energy for the concert that Pitbull?

Los Tucanes de Tijuana

We are definitely feeling this norteño take on Selena’s classics. The band is wildly popular for their solid and incredible norteño sound and we can only imagine what they will prepare to honor Selena. Mexican legends giving praise to a Mexican-American legend is everything.

Becky G

The Inglewood native already showed her respect and love for Selena during her last concert in Texas. The singer belted out a beautiful rendition of “Dreamin’ of You,” one of Selena’s most famous songs. It just seems like a natural choice to have Becky G back in San Antonio for more Selena tributes.

Ally Brooke

The former Fifth Harmony band member took the stage during the 2019 Miss Universe pageant to sing a medley of Selena’s songs. Fans of the pageant and of Selena were ecstatic that Selena was getting some recognition during one of the biggest pageants in the world.
