Here is my train of thought. "Ayer estuve en un concierto:" "Yesterday" requires the pretérito indefinido because it refers to a completed action at a time in the past, and the verb is estar because it is referring to a location; hence estuve.
However I am stuck with "Fue en San Juan:" Is San Juan not a location? If so, would it require the verb estar rather than ser?
It would be great if you could explain this.

Good question! One of the specific uses of verb Ser (not estar) is when saying when and where "something takes place". Here is a lesson explaining this. It is a basic lesson so you will probably only find verbs in the present tense, but it applies to all tenses.
Thanks ... .that's really clear.
