Latin musicians Joan Sebastian and Ramón Ayala have had to cancel a U.S. leg of their concert tour including their concert Friday, September 13, 2013 at Aurora's RiverEdge Park. Replacing the duo is Alfredo Bojorquez (El Puma de Sinaloa), a traditional Mexican singer who has embraced his career singing at mainly jaripeos performing on horses and singing traditional Mexican corridos to romantic ballads, and Paquita La Del Barrio (a songstress from the barrio). Mexico's popular ranchera music star represents musically the feminine point of view for relationships.
Tickets are $30 in advance; $35 at the door; $75 Sky Deck, which includes food, drinks and the concert. The RiverEdge box office is currently contacting all Sebastian/Ayala ticket buyers to arrange refunds or offer exchanges into the Paquita concert.
