Before this El Kommander asked the organizers of the concert to put at his disposal a private plane, the full floor of a hotel, and armored trucks, which was granted.
According to the statements of the promotion company Balboa Promotions, the Sinaloa newspaper El Debate, they asked for the support of the Army and the Marines to guard the event.
The singer decided not to attend and in his Twitter account he wrote "for reasons of force majeure our presentation is cancelled. Thanks for your understanding".
After the cancellation of El Kommander, the entrepreneurs contracted the group Calibre 50, but they also suspended their attendance due to threats.
According to the website Tamaulipas Today, the entrepreneur Edgar Ramirez and Roberto Balboa announced the refunding of ticket money.
The promoters said that El Kommander cancelled the concert at the last minute, when they had everything ready in Palenque.
