Selena to Be Honored with Tribute Concert in Texas 25 Years After Her Death


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 take place May 9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. (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 Andrés Muñoz made the announcement Tuesday morning.


Selena Quintanilla will be honored with a tribute concert in San Antonio, Texas, in May, 25 years after her death.


Suzette Quintanilla, CEO/president of Q Productions, said the family chose the city for the tribute concert because it is "the hub for Tejano music" and the family's "second home."


"We were asked by several cities in Texas and California to host the concert, but we really chose San Antonio because we have a lot of memories here," Suzette Quintanilla said. "The Alamodome is an amazing venue. ... It's huge and I couldn't ask for a better location to have it. This place houses about 54,000 people and I truly believe we will fill it."
