“Since the death of my dearest friend and colleague on the beach at Playa Del Carmen, I have had the intention to visit there to make my homages at the very place where we lost him. I am delighted to return to the beautiful Playa Del Carmen and make my dedication to Paco with my upcoming concert”, says John.
