Mexican legend Ana Gabriel said she felt tired during the kickoff concert for her Por Amor a Ustedes Tour in Los Angeles, and went on to announce her retirement from music. Her reason? Gabriel said she wants to spend more time with her family, and enjoy the spoils of her almost 50-year music career.
"I want to tell you that soon I will leave the stage and it is not far away, because I am tired, because I have the right to live and I want to enjoy my family in another way," Gabriel said during her concert.
The singer did not announce an exact date for her retirement, but will continue to perform shows on her tour before ending a career of almost half a century on stage.
During her concert in Los Angeles, the Mexican singer also talked about the political situation in some Latin American countries like Mexico. This annoyed her fans, who began to boo her in the middle of the concert.
"Even though in this first concert I went out to give everything as I usually do, tonight part of the audience put me in a difficult situation as a human being and as a singer, it unbalanced me as an artist. In 48 years of career, this has never happened to me and I assume my responsibility but I cannot accept disrespect when the only thing I bring with me is my voice, my singing, my friendship and my blessings," Gabriel wrote on Instagram about what happened.
She also apologized in the post about the situation, writing she wants those that come to her concerts to have the best time.
"I apologize to the public who went to have a good time and who know that the artist will fulfill them and fill their soul with love, I want to tell them that right now I do not feel good as a human being and much less as an artist, but that yes, I promise that other shows will be completely full of love and music, thank you for your understanding," Gabriel wrote.
She will continue with her Por Amor a Ustedes Tour, which has 20 cities on its docket.
