The Juan Gabriel concert scheduled for Sept. 9 at the Tacoma Dome has been canceled after the artist died early Sunday.
The 66-year-old Latin music legend died of natural causes in Santa Monica, California.
The Tacoma concert was one of 15 he was set to perform through the end of the year. In addition, his life story was to be told in a telenovela set to air on Telemundo.
During his 45-year career, Gabriel sold more than 100 million records, according to his website. Gabriel, whose real name was Alberto Aguilera Valadez, was inducted into Billboard’s Latin Music Hall of Fame in 1996.
