Juan Gabriel holds the record for the longest concert in Mexico


Juan Gabriel always gave something to talk about for his great talent and charisma, but also for his eccentricities, such as offering a concert of several hours, with which he would break a record.

Let’s think about going to see an artist and dreaming of him doing a long show to have a lot to enjoy. Two hours? Three hours tops? Well, for Juan Gabriel there were no limits and that’s how in 2015 he broke the record for the longest concert in Mexico by singing for six hours straight. Yes, six hours!

On May 10, 2015, Juan Gabriel sang for more than 6 hours to celebrate Mother’s Day, breaking the duration record at the National Auditorium in Mexico City. The most curious thing about this whole situation is that it was not planned to last so long, so neither the musicians, nor the staff, nor the people from the Auditorium knew that they would be there for six hours.

Those who knew “Divo de Juárez” knew that with him it was only possible to know when his concerts began but never when they ended.

The concert with which Juan Gabriel broke the record was part of one of the 18 presentations he made between April, May and September at the Auditorium in 2015. An orchestra, choirs, dancers and mariachis participated in the show, as well as some guest artists. .

On stage he was accompanied by artists such as David Bisbal, Daniela Romo, Emmanuel, Natalia Lafourcade, Lupillo Rivera, Espinoza Paz, Lucía Méndez, Yolanda del Rio, Aída Cuevas, Yuri, Carlos Rivera, Fernando de la Mora, Paquita “La del Barrio” , Pepe Aguilar, Pablo Montero and Mariana Seoane, just to name a few.

While Juan Gabriel has always been a popular performer, it is his work as a composer that really stood out. His compositions have been recorded by many other singers and include hits such as “Yo No Se Que Me Paso”, “El Palo”, “Mi Pueblo”, “Te Sigo Amando”, “Asi Tu” and many more. In fact, Juan Gabriel is credited with having written more than 500 songs, quite a feat for a man with no musical training.

In 1996, Juan Gabriel was inducted into the “Billboard Latin Music Hall of Fame“; the previous year he was named ASCAP’s “Songwriter of the Year.

Throughout his career, he sold more than one hundred million records, composed more than 1,800 songs and won several gold records, becoming a one-of-a-kind artist.
