According to local chronicles, Fontanet was presented with his new band “Almost Social Justice” in a night club that had a capacity for about 1500 people and ended up attending at least 3000.
The call was made through social networks to avoid problems with local authorities, but the news about violating the capacity of the place, already circulates in all media.
Some officials tried to stop the show, but the owners of the bar ignored them. In addition, the police were outnumbered by the many people who attended.
Parents of victims of Cromañón are outraged, believing that Fontanet enjoys total impunity and fear that a similar tragedy could happen again. In Paraná, the audience was composed mainly of children and adolescents.
