More than 100,000 people attending a free concert in the Zocalo, Mexico City’s main plaza, with Chayanne and Marc Anthony.
Chayanne said, “Esta es hora de decir ‘México lindo y querido’, porque desde que empecé mi carrera he estado ligado a esta tierra, y hoy es un honor estar en el Zócalo. Mis músicos, mi gente y yo hemos preparado este show con mucho cuidado, así que pueden hacer de nosotros lo que quieran.”
(Chayanne said, “This is the time to say ‘beautiful and beloved Mexico’, because since I started my career I have been tied to this land, and today is an honor to be in the Zocalo. My musicians, my people and I have prepared this show very carefully, so we can make whatever they want.”)
This is the first concert held under Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera, who is following the lead of his predecessor, Marcelo Ebrard, in fostering huge – and free – cultural events organized in the Zocalo in a country where having to pay to go to a concert is not within everyone’s financial grasp.
Here are a few clips of the concert:
