Quoting Pzurita1 (Reply 4): What the article fails to mention is that they had an electrical problem and they had to continue singing and playing unplugged
However, this was reported by many mexican media outlets. A spokesman for Volaris indicated that they provided the batteries and electrical power as per the specs provided by the band's engineers. The band just decided to "go acoustic" and amended their programme as necesary. Personally, I wouldn't object hearing an acoustic jam with these guys (and perhaps I would have preferred it).
For those not familiar with them, Los Tigres del Norte is by far the most important mexican folk music band since a number of years (and they've been around 25+ years). These guys brought a music genre ("corrido") to a new level.
Quoting OP3000 (Thread starter): She says the concert ended when the nearly four-hour flight from Toluca, Mexico, to Los Angeles, California, entered U.S. airspace because U.S. authorities do not allow concerts on airplanes.
That is interesting. Where is that prohibition stated?

Los Tigres del Norte concert AND a flight home? Don't think you can ask for anything greater than that! Just wish I would have known about this earlier. Im trying to think if this could have placed a saftey hazard on the aircraft but cant think of any as long as no electrical strain was put on the aircraft generators. What about sound waves traveling through the aircrafts airframe creating vibration?
