Peso Pluma’s planned October 14 concert at Estadio Caliente in Tijuana has been canceled after the singer faced death threats from alleged members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel. “Our goal is to protect the fans and the team,” a statement from Peso Pluma’s labels Double P Records and Prajin Music Group posted to Instagram reads. “For the safety of everyone involved, we will cancel our show in Tijuana. Thank you so much to all our fans for understanding. We love you.”
Four banners hung on bridges across Tijuana specifically targeted Peso Pluma and mentioned the planned concert. “This goes to Peso Pluma, refrain from presenting yourself on October 14, because it will be your last show due to your disrespect and loose tongue, you show up and we are going to (break you),” the banners reportedly read.
Local authorities investigated the threats and municipal president of Tijuana, Montserrat Caballero Ramírez, told journalists that he would consider canceling the concert. A 43-year-old man in possession of one of the banners was arrested. Peso Pluma recently postponed a series of U.S. shows.
