The star took part in the city's Tecate Emblema Festival, and though she later took to Instagram to thank fans for their support and detail how amazing her experience was, she also revealed she faced a major risk.

While Gwen is a seasoned performer and has toured all around the world, she admitted she wasn't quite prepared for the challenges she faced due to the city's high altitude.

She explained on Instagram Stories: "I just played Mexico City, and nobody told me that it's 7,000 feet above sea level."

The songstress revealed the scary consequences of singing under those circumstances, saying: "My lungs almost burst."

Out of breath as she might have been, she still expressed how great it felt to perform, telling fans: "It was an amazing show, thank you Mexico City! Two years I waited to come back and see you guys, and your love is just… I don't even know what to say."

Gwen still gave an epic performance

She thoughtfully ended her message to her fans by saying: Thank you so much, I love you," and by puckering her signature red lips and kissing the camera.
