Through a press release issued Wednesday afternoon, February 22, Tapia Entertainment indicated that the concert of singers Edén Muñoz, El Fantasma and Peso Pluma, scheduled for March 4 at the Chevron Stadium, has been cancelled.
“We inform you that unfortunately the concert on Saturday, March 4th of this year to be held at the Chevron Stadium will not take place, it has been canceled despite ticket sales, unfortunately insecurity and threats to other events have been affecting us and we did not meet the goal to hold this event,” said Tapia Entertainment.
At the same time, they pointed out that refunds for those who purchased their tickets will be made from Monday, February 27 to Monday, March 6, according to Ticket Power system policies.
“If the purchase was made through a website, you do not have to make any claim since your refund will be automatic, any questions or clarification can go to the box office,” they said, adding that: “if the purchase was made at the box office, you must go to the same one where the purchase was made, while Farmacias Roma will make their respective refund if the ticket has been checked in one of its branches.

On February 11, the Sinaloa band Grupo Arriesgado had to suspend its presentation at the Chevron Stadium after the criminal group Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) made threats against its vocalist, Arturo González (El Panther Bélico), through a couple of banners exposing the singer of the so-called “corridos bélicos” for promoting his music in the region.
Other events scheduled at the baseball stadium for the coming months are: Julión Álvarez (March 18), Carin León and Remmy Valenzuela (April 1), Alfredo Olivas and Luis R. Coronel (May 6), Los Tigres del Norte (May 27), and Pancho Barraza (June 24).
