Mexico City recap: biggest show of TOFTT tour

The July 21st date was reserved for Simple Plan’s show in Mexico City, Mexico, which was – as the band members have put it – the best show of the Taking One For The Team tour so far, surpassing the band’s other favorites such as Rome, Cologne or Prague.

One of the reasons Mexico City may have earned this title, could be that this was also the biggest show of the tour so far – with over 5000 attendees [before that Simple Plan’s biggest show this year had been Prague with 4000 people]. And it was not just the fans that went crazy – no. Check out the video below, which captures the moment Pierre hit the pinata that appeared on the stage:
