There seems to be some confusion with this one, so let’s clarify things now.

People have been writing in asking about the safety of la Arrolladora Banda el Limón and the tragedy that struck at their recent concert in Veracruz, Mexico.

Here’s what happened…before the band got on stage to sing, a shootout occurred some ten blocks away. The event organizers decided to announce that on the mic and asked everyone to leave for their safety.

This caused pandemonium and the pushing, shoving, and trampling soon followed.

There were over 30 people who were injured once the panic took over the place.

Fortunately, there weren’t any deaths and the shooting never reached that location.
