Peso Pluma crosses OKC, Tulsa and other cities on the North American tour

Pioneering Mexican musician Peso Pluma has canceled his summer shows in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, along with several other concerts during his North American tour.

In partnership with Live Nation, the rising global music star announced plans in February to play coast-to-coast on his 2024 “Éxodo Tour” in celebration of his 2023 Grammy-winning album “Génesis.”

His 40-day trek was originally scheduled to include two summer shows in Oklahoma: July 23 in OKC at Paycom Center and August 3 in Tulsa at the BOK Center. But representatives from both Sooner State venues confirmed this week that those shows have been canceled.

Ticket holders for his OKC show can expect refunds to be issued within the next 60 days and received in the same format as at the point of purchase.

Tulsa ticket buyers will automatically receive a refund to the original payment method used to purchase the tickets.

Who is Peso Pluma?

Pluma, 24, was born Hassan Emilio Kabande Laija in Zapopan in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. He is leading a crop of young Mexican and Mexican-American artists who are emerging as global stars and “removing the stigma of regional music from Mexican music,” he told USA Today.

Last year, Pluma’s “Ella Baila Sola,” a collaboration with Mexican-American group Eslabon Armado, made music history as the first regional Mexican song to enter the top five of the all-genre Billboard 100 chart. The acts performed the global hit together for the first time on television in November during the 2023 Latin Grammys.

Since his breakthrough album “Génesis” was released last June, Pluma has achieved several more impressive milestones: in July, he broke Bad Bunny’s record on the Hot Latin Songs Chart with 25 simultaneous titles in the ranking of 50, making him 24 out of Puerto Rican superstar surpassed. song record from 2022.

In September, he became the first Mexican artist to perform at the MTV Music Video Awards since the show’s inception in 1984, performing his single “Lady Gaga” at the VMAs.

He ended last year as YouTube’s No. 1 most-viewed artist of 2023 in the US, with more than 8.5 billion views throughout the year. “Ella Baila Sola” was also the third most streamed song on YouTube last year.

In February, his “Génesis” won the Grammy Award for Best Música Mexicana Album (including Tejano), and in April he played a standout set at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California.

What other shows has Peso Pluma canceled?

In addition to his scheduled OKC and Tulsa shows, Pluma has canceled tour dates in at least seven other North American cities, including Montreal, Toronto, Kansas City, Nashville, New Orleans, Detroit and Miami, Florida, according to Ticketmaster.

No reason was given for the Oklahoma show cancellations. Neither Pluma nor Live Nation representatives responded to an email from The Oklahoman this week.

Earlier this year, Pluma canceled three Latin American tour stops for undisclosed “personal reasons,” according to Billboard.

In 2023, he canceled a fall event in Tijuana, Mexico, after alleged death threats were posted on banners around the city signed with the initials of a Mexican cartel, NBC News reported.
