(CNN Spanish) –– Minutes before taking the stage at the Rommel Fernández Stadium in Panama, Puerto Rican salsero Marc Anthony canceled his show.

Moments before Anthony’s presentation, the attendees had enjoyed the songs of Panamanian Sandra Sandoval and Puerto Rican salsero Jerry Rivera, who had animated the public for about an hour and a half as a prelude to Anthony’s arrival.
The announcement that was heard through the stadium’s speakers, as CNN found after speaking with some of the attendees, limited itself to saying that the presentation had been postponed due to an “accident” and that Anthony was being treated by local paramedics from the capital. Panamanian.
As an added bonus, fans were asked to “hold onto” their e-tickets because the performance would be rescheduled.
CNN attempted to contact Marc Anthony’s representatives but were unable to obtain comment on the reasons for this cancellation. In Panama, the company Magic Dreams Productions, which organized the concert in that city, announced that it will soon issue a statement on the matter.
This is the second time this year that Marc Anthony has canceled his presentation in Panama. The artist was scheduled to perform on February 23, but on that occasion he was postponed to give citizens an opportunity to complete their vaccination schedule against covid-19, according to the Panamanian authorities.
