David Bisbal to Launch U.S. Leg of “En Tus Planes Tour” in September

David Bisbal is hoping he’ll appear in your plans

After postponing his 2020 tour dates, the 41-year-old Spanish singer is hitting the road for his 2021 En Tus Planes trek that is set to kick off September 30 at The Fillmore in Miami.

David Bisbal

The coast-to-coast U.S. tour — which will follow Bisbal’s 11 shows in Spain over the summer — will make stops in major cities like Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

The 16-date tour will wrap up October 30 in San Jose, Calif.

Bisbal’s En Tus Planes tour is named after his 2020 album that includes star-studded collaborations featuring Alejandro Fernández (“Abriré la Puerta“), Sebastian Yatra (“A Partir de Hoy“) and Carrie Underwood (“Tears of Gold“).

Billboard caught up with the Spanish star earlier this year at the Latin AMAs, where he talked about his unprecedented song with Underwood. “The song was part of one of my projects and when I discovered the power ‘Tears of Gold’ had, I knew it needed a powerful voice,” he explained. “That’s why we got in touch with Carrie’s team. She said yes from the very beginning and I’m very grateful for that. In fact, it was her idea to sing some of her parts in Spanish.”

David Bisbal Teams Up with Carrie Underwood for Bilingual Uptempo Pop Ballad “Tears of Gold”

David Bisbal is shedding tears with an American Idol

The 41-year-old Spanish singer, songwriter and actor has joined voices with Carrie Underwood for the bilingual single “Tears of Gold.”

David Bisbal x Carrie Underwood

The dancetastic single – a soaring, uptempo pop ballad – features Bisbal and Underwood’s powerful voices.

It’s vintage Bisbal, who’s always had a flair for the dramatic. And, it’s Underwood’s first-ever foray into recorded musica en español.

When Bisbal first heard the demo, “I immediately knew it was an amazing track that needed a special talent, and voice, to work with me on a duet,” he explains. “As an artist and vocalist, I listen to a lot of songs, determine the style and sound, and am involved in the process of my collaborators for my projects.”

Bisbal took “Tears of Gold,” originally written by Paul Harris, Matt Schwartz and Cameron Forbes, plus “Despacito” producers Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo, who added Spanish lines to turn the track into a bilingual song.

When he approached Underwood to sing it as a duet, she was game, even though she’d be singing in both English and Spanish, and despite the fact that “Tears of Gold” is not a country song but purely a pop track.

“I was very excited that Carrie wanted to record a bilingual song with lyrics in both English and my language, Spanish,” says Bisbal, who also sings in Spanish and English on the track. “It is a big moment for me personally to be joined by such a powerful voice in music on a track that connects Latin, pop and country music together in this way. It’s a beautiful moment for our music genres and I am thankful for Carrie to collaborate with me for this release.”

The sleekly elegant video for “Tears of Gold” was shot in Los Angeles, in urban backgrounds that highlight the strength of Bisbal and Underwood’s voices.
