Queridos amigos de Monterrey,
Estoy muy triste de anunciarles que, lamentablemente, por motivos de incumplimiento en las obligaciones del promotor para lo acordado en nuestro contrato, no podré ver a mis hermosos fans en San Pedro este domingo y lunes y cantarles las canciones que querían escuchar.
Ustedes saben que los quiero mucho México!… espero verlos muy pronto.
