“All these years that have allowed me… I don’t speak Spanish,” he joked, when he was interrupted by the screams of his fans.
“All these years that I have come to Mexico have shown the world why I have the best fans in the world. There are things I didn’t think would happen and you make it possible. Thank you very much for allowing me to continue here,” she stressed.
Meanwhile, the band Metronomy performed on the Corona Cero stage, this being their last performance in Mexico City before taking an indefinite hiatus from their career.
