Eternamente Juan Gabriel was announced by the chart-topping artist's family back in December. "We have the support of Mexico's government to produce something of high quality, just like the concerts my father gave us," the singer's son, Iván Aguilera, said in a press conference. "It will be something very special where people will be able to relive the experience of watching their idol Juan Gabriel."
Gustavo Farias, musical producer for the tribute concert, offered details about the production, teasing a "very big surprise": "During performances, we will be showing images of Juan Gabriel but we have a very very big surprise. I can't say much yet but we will be using high quality technology."
