Fans in the Dominican Republic are mad at Luis Miguel as his scheduled concert for Wednesday night at the Estadio Olímpico was rescheduled abruptly. The production team announced that they moved the event to Thursday, January 18, citing tech issues as the reasoning.
Dominicans, like most Latinos, love Luis Miguel. In fact, the stadium was brimming with eager fans awaiting the artist. However, as the hours passed, technical issues emerged, prompting the production team to display a message on two giant screens citing “technical problems” without specifying the nature of the issue.
According to Diario Libre, at around 11:00 PM, the concert equipment began to dismantle after over two hours of anticipation. The show’s suspension was officially announced at 11:17 PM, but even before this, some audience members had started leaving due to the prolonged wait.
In a statement posted on social media, Pav Events explained the decision to postpone, citing the demanding requirements of production for an artist of this caliber and expressing regret for any inconvenience caused.
The excitement had been palpable since the announcement of Luis Miguel’s visit to the Dominican Republic as part of his tour, with tickets selling out within hours of their release.

As the concert equipment was dismantled without explanation, faces of displeasure and boos emerged from the audience. Complaints echoed in the air, labeling the situation as disrespectful and disorderly. People also took to social media to voice their displeasure.

Even though people will be able to use their tickets today, as per Pav Events‘ official page, numerous users are demanding refunds. Some fans are stating that they won’t be able to attend Thursday’s rescheduled show due to work commitments, residing outside the city, or having booked flights out of the country.
Fans Are Not Happy
Many attendees lamented the slow and poorly organized entry process. Others complained about the scanners for accessing digital tickets, an issue previously observed at other massive concerts like Bad Bunny’s.
Inside the stadium, even before 10:00 PM, giant screens displayed a message of experiencing technical difficulties, seemingly foreshadowing the unfolding events.
On January 18th, El Heraldo de Mexico reported that Luis Miguel had allegedly canceled his entire concert in the Dominican Republic. However, as of the writing of this article, the artist nor his team had confirmed this.
What a mess. Hopefully, people can enjoy a performance by the “Hasta Que Me Olvides” singer.For Image credit or remove please email for immediate removal - email@example.com
