About the tour[edit | edit source]
The Amor Prohibido Tour was the final concert tour for Selena and her band "Los Dinos". The tour was the most successful tour by a Latin artist and performing more places than ever before. The tour was expected to last into mid 1995. Selena was scheduled for a mega televised concert on April 1, 1995 in Los Angeles, California Sports Arena. After the tour had finished, Selena had planned on releasing her crossover English language album Dreaming of You and going on tour to promote her English language album, with many songs on the tour from her previous albums. Selena also stated that while touring for the English album, she would also be in the studio recording her next upcoming Spanish language album.

The Disco Medley including "I Will Survive", "Funky Town", "The Hustle", "Last Dance", and "On The Radio" was only performed at the Houston Astrodome concert on February 26, 1995.

The tour also included many songs that were requested by fans, such as “¿Qué Creias?”, "No Debes Jugar", "La Llamada", "Ven Conmigo", "Si La Quieres", and "Missing My Baby". Selena was noted to perform "Ya No" on selected dates, which is the only song from "Amor Prohibido" album not included in the main setlist.

When Selena performed at the Houston Astrodome on February 26, 1995, she drew the largest crowd in history of the Astrodome. The concert drew in a total of over 61,000 fans. Many of which have said it was Selena's best performance. The concert was noted as Selena's last performance, but it was really Selena's last televised concert. Selena's last performance was on March 19, 1995, which took place in Bryan, Texas. The set list for that performance only included six songs: "Amor Prohibido", "Baila Esta Cumbia", "Fotos Y Recuerdos", "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom", "No Me Queda Mas", and "Como La Flor". After the performance, Selena took a small break from the tour to record more of her English album. She was scheduled to perform at the Los Angeles sports coliseum, California, on April 1, 1995, but was murdered the day before.

I should know, My name is Jeannie Hoffman and I reside in Ridge, Md and I was an Usher/Staff member scheduled to work that concert. Until we got the notice Of Selena's untimely and broken hearted death. We will miss her very much. My young daughters love her music and can't get enough. And I never will either. Our hearts will always go out to her family members. We love you too and you are in our prayer until the end of time. 8/2011.
