Miscellaneous[edit]

  • This concert was featured in the film based upon the life of Selena.
  • The opening scene in Selena is a recreation of the actual "Disco Medley" performance. However, the version of the song used in the film is much shorter.
  • "Si Una Vez" is also featured towards the end of the film. The performance recreated for the film was short upon its release in theaters, but an extended scene in the TV Version and the new DVD edition of the film contains the song in almost complete entirety.
  • This concert held the record for the largest crowd in the history of the Houston Astrodome until April 1, 2001 when World Wrestling Entertainment (then known as WWF) hosted Wrestlemania X-7 inside the stadium with a new all-time record for the facility at 67,925 fans.
