Vicente Fernández show canceled for lack of permits

April 3, 2009

Costa Rica health authorities on Saturday ordered the cancellation of the eagerly awaited performance of legendary Mexican singer Vicente Fernández, the same night the show was set to take place.

The concert, scheduled for Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in Tibás, north of San José, lacked health and other permits, according to press reports.

A star of ranchera and mariachi music, Fernández told the daily La Nación he has never seen anything like this. “Why if the sound, the stage, the lights, everything is all ready, did they close off the stage?” he asked.

Thousands of fans waited outside the stadium hoping the doors would finally open.

The concert has been rescheduled for April 28, La Nación reported Sunday.
