After listening to a person on stage tell them the that narco-corrido singer El Kommander would not be appearing tonight, April 24th, at the concert in Santa Ana Ahuehuepan, Tula Hidalgo, the hundreds of angry followers attending, caused a disturbance.

The burning of tents, vehicles and looting of beer outlets among other things.

In various videos circulating on networks, where people are moving from one side to the other, looting beer and setting fire to the place.

It was said that the motive that El Kommander didn't want to sing, was that he had received no money from the organizers of the concert, so he decided to leave the venue without giving an explanation to his followers.

In the video someone asks why he is not appearing, with the question "what is happening?". To which someone answers " We have just spoken with the people of El Kommander and they said they have not been paid and that he is not going to appear.

The concert was taking place in the community of Santa Ana Ahuehuepan, where he was the headline act. Earlier acts had benn Rancho el Aguaje, grupo Comboy Alterado, among others.
