On February 26, 1995, Selena performed an iconic concert at the Houston Astrodome in Texas. She rolled up on stage, riding in a white buggy and carriage. Waved to the sold-out crowd. Got on stage and said, “How ya doin’, Houston, Texas.” The wild thing is that this concert was just another show, no one had any idea it would be her last performance ever. That is why the announcement that her last show will be available for streaming on Amazon is extra special.
“Selena – The Last Concert: Live From The Astrodome” is now streaming on Amazon via the Qello channel. So technically, the special is free, with a 7-day subscription of the Qello streaming channel. But you can work around it but canceling the channel at the end of the week once the trial is over.
All of her concerts are special, which is why we love re-watching them. But this last show at the Astrodome has a special place in all of our hearts because it was her last. We also see Selena shine because she’s singing old favorites and classic disco songs in English.
The show actually begins with a disco medley and then moves on to “Amor Prohibido,” then “Baila Esta Cumbia.” The rest of the set includes Selena’s signature songs including “Tus Desprecios,” “Cobarde,” “Techno Cumbia,” “La Carcacha,” “No Me Queda Más,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” “Si Una Vez,” “El Chico Del Apartamento 512,” “Ya Ves,” and, of course, “Como La Flor.”
Her last concert went down in history as it sold more tickets than country legends, including Vince Gill, Reba Mcentire, and George Strait. Celebrity fans today continue to pay homage to Selena’s show at the Astrodome by singing one of her songs at their Houston concerts. Earlier this year, singer Kacey Musgraves sang “Como La Flor” at the Houston Rodeo, then Prince Royce covered “No Me Queda Mas.” Cardi B and the New Kids on the Block paid tribute to Selena as well during their Houston concerts.
While we must say that Selena’s Astrodome concert is available for free on YouTube, there’s nothing like watching it in good quality and without any annoying ads. So yeah, it’s probably worth the Qello subscription. Now all you have to do is make a night of it and invite over all the Selena fans you know!
