The event organizers’ informed the public that the concert was being canceled due to an accident that Marc suffered backstage, minutes before he was scheduled to perform. In a statement, event organizers said, “Marc Anthony had to postpone his concert in Panama due to an accident involving the stage’s stairs, occurring minutes before his appearance onstage. The injury resulted in complications on his back, which prevented his live performance.”

“Currently, Marc is being transported to Miami to be attended by his specialists. We are grateful for medical personnel in Panama, who immediately provided their services and to all guests who were present for the concert.”

The incident disturbed some of the attendants, who asked for reimbursement. Despite this, Magic Dream, the company that organized the event, is adamant that the concert will have a new date that will soon be revealed, and that ticket holders wouldn’t have to make any extra purchases.

This isn’t the first time where Marc cancels a show in Panama. Last February, he canceled a concert due to a COVID-19 outbreak. In 2015, he canceled another show due to showing symptoms of dehydration, preventing him from giving the performance that people had been expecting of him.
