Ranchera icon Vicente Fernandez has canceled his July 18 show at the US
Airways Center in Phoenix.

Live Nation didn't respond to inquiries at press time about the specific reason for the cancellation. But it comes in the wake of other Latin artists skipping the state on their tours as a protest against its new immigration enforcement law.

Fernandez' show with Paquita la del Barrio had appeared to be going forward a couple of weeks ago, but Ticketmaster.com shows a cancellation of the date.
