Selena Quintanilla-Pérez’s family is putting on a massive concert to celebrate her life.

The Selena XXV-Veinticinco Años concert, put on by the family company Q Productions, will commemorate the 25th anniversary of Selena’s death on May 9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

“We are excited to bring this ultimate fan experience to honor and celebrate my sister, Selena,” CEO/president of Q Productions, Suzette Quintanilla, said in a statement to Billboard. “Over the past 25 years, her influence and relevance have only grown throughout generations. Through our father, Abraham Quintanilla, we were taught to persevere in the face of adversity and to work hard to accomplish our dreams. Those core values, along with her amazing talent and ability to connect with people has helped sustain Selena’s legacy and it is what makes her an impactful and an important role model 25 years later.”

The lineup will include Pitbull, Becky G, Los Tucanes de Tijuana, A.B. Quintanilla III & Los Kumbia Allstarz, and more. 

Selena was known as the Queen of Tejano music. Her career was tragically cut short on March 31, 1995 when at the age of 23, she was shot and killed by her agent, Yolanda Saldívar.

San Antonio’s Mayor, Ron Nirenberg, said that the city is “committed” to having the concert live up to the expectations. Tickets are available at the Alamodome Box Office or via Ticketmaster.
