Pepe Aguilar to Launch 15 New “Jaripeo Sin Fronteras” Tour Dates in September

Pepe Aguilar is expanding his North American presence…

After a successful U.S. and Mexico tour in 2018 and 2019, the 52-year-old Mexican-American singer-songwriter and actor will continue his Jaripeo Sin Fronteras tour with 15 new dates in 2021.

Pepe Aguilar

Conceptualized by the renowned Regional Mexican star himself, the family-friendly concert will have performances by Pepe, Angela Aguilar, Leonardo Aguilar, Antonio Aguilar Jr., Banda Sinaloense, Mariachi Zacatecano, rodeo acts, horse shows, charreria competition, bull riders, and more.

The 2021 tour, produced by Live Nation, will kick off on September 4 in Phoenix’s Gila River Arena, and wrap up on December 5 in San Jose’s SAP Center.

The Aguilar dynasty will also make pit stops in Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles, to name a few.

Combining traditional equestrianism with the latest technology like video, lasers, lights, and special effects, Pepe describes the tour as “a rock concert but with traditional content.”

“It’s basically a modular concept, where you can change the pieces,” Aguilar previously told Billboard of the family touring tradition. “The fundamental parts are the horse shows and the Mexican traditions.

Alejandro Fernandez Announces 19-Date U.S. Leg of “Hecho en México” Tour

Alejandro Fernandez is rarin’ to get back on the road…

After a more than 12-month hiatus that saw him interrupt his tour mid-start, the 49-year-old Mexican superstar has announced a 19-date U.S. tour.

Alejandro Fernandez

It’ll see him performing with 25 people onstage, including his full band, his Mexican mariachi, special guests Christian Nodal and his son, Alex Fernández, as well as a handful of guests in different cities.

The “Hecho en México” tour, so named after Fernández’s Grammy-nominated album (out on Universal Music Latin), kicks off on September 10 in Reno, and ends October 24 in Phoenix.

The tour is presented by Live Nation, and tickets go on sale on April 16 at 10:00 am on Ticketmaster.

The tour will play to full capacity venues, says Luana Pagani, a partner in Seitrack, Fernandez’s management team. For these venues, it translates to 5,800 people at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden to nearly 15,000 at The Forum in Los Angeles.

“Nothing is ‘normal’ yet in terms of venues, but we understand all venues will follow their protocols, and we will as well,” says Pagani.

All visa and work requirements for Fernández and his musicians have already been cleared, and Fernandez will also perform at the Latin American Music Awards April 15.

For Fernandez, the import of his tour announcement is not lost, especially as one of Latin music’s biggest stars, as the scion of one of Mexico’s most prominent musical families (his father is Vicente Fernández), and as the spokesperson of Families Belong Together. The campaign of the National Domestic Workers Alliance works to end family separation, and will receive a portion of the tours’ proceeds.

“We lost a lot of people in this pandemic — fiends, family,” Fernández tells Billboard. “So the most important thing is we’re coming back properly, doing things right and with a very important message after all that’s happened, which is thanking God that we’re alive.”

Fernández, a prolific touring act, is known — like his father — for his bravura performances that are long on time and high on quality.

For “Hecho en México,” he is upping the ante by touring for the first time ever with his son, Alex Fernández, who is 25 and signed to Sony. The prospect recalls Fernández’s own stage debut alongside his father, when he was only six years old.

However, says Fernández, “I only started to tour when I was 18, so we’re not that far apart. Alex is a good kid. He’s dedicated and professional. He’s seen how my father works, and he’s seen how I work, and he’s responsible. He’s hungry to do things right.”

Fernández will also invite rising ranchero/norteño star Christian Nodal as a special guest on at least three tour stops. The two became close after recording the hit “Duele” together. It was the kind of cross-generational collaboration Fernández had not done before in Mexican music.

Fernández, that rare artist who’s able to navigate easily between traditional pop and traditional regional Mexican music, had most often collaborated with pop acts, and in his concerts he tends to mix styles and outfits to represent his two styles of music.

Partnering with Nodal, and also with Edén Muñoz of Calibre 50, who will be a guest in at least one show, highlights a new generation of Mexican music starts that are propelling the music forward.

“There’s a resurging interest for Mexican music,” agrees Fernández. “In fact, I’ll be singing some of my pop material, but in more Mexican arrangements.”

Fernández will also perform the entire tour dressed in the traditional formal charro garb that includes the broad-rimmed hat, tight decorated pants and a short fitted jacket.

That’s good news for Mexican fans, who are expected to fly in from Mexico to see Fernández’s shows, particularly on the West Coast. The month of September, which has traditionally drawn Mexican tourists to Las Vegas for the many Latin music performances that take place there as part of Mexican Independence, is expected to see a surge in travel, as concerts have not restarted in Mexico.

“Last year I had played Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City and a couple of dates in Guadalajara and then we had to put everything on hold,” says Fernández. “This will be an epic return.”

Here are the dates and venues for the “Hecho En Mexico” tour:

Jennifer Lopez Signs Multi-Year Touring Deal with Live Nation

Jennifer Lopezis taking the show on the road…

The 50-year-old Puerto Rican superstar, who wowed a global audience of 100 million with her co-headlining Super Bowl Halftime Show, has signed a major multi-year touring deal with Live Nation.

Jennifer Lopez

“Jennifer Lopez has given fans spectacular live performances for decades through sold out tour dates and her Las Vegas residencies,” said Brad Wavra, senior vice president touring, Live Nation.

WhileJ.Lo‘s recent Super Bowl halftime performance was a highlight, Wavra says it’s Lopez’s2019 It’s My Party Tour (produced by Live Nation) that really cemented the partnership, featuring Lopez’s thrilling brand of signature pop hits, from “Ain’t Your Mama” and “El Anillo” to “Let’s Get Loud” and “Live It Up.”

“The demand to see Jennifer live is only growing,” Wavra said. “Live Nation is proud to be partnering with such a worldwide phenomenon for years to come.”

Lopez has established a career as an actress, producer, singer and entertainer with extensive projects in music, film and television with more than 75 million records sold globally, in addition to a cumulative worldwide box-office gross of more than $3 billion.

Lopez, who is the only female artist to have a No. 1 album and No. 1 film at the box office simultaneously, will next star in the movie musical Marry Me withOwen Wilsonand Colombian recording artist Maluma. The film is set in the world of pop music, which celebrates the unlikely romance between a pop star and a fan. 

Earlier this week, Lopez took the top prize forPollstar’Best Latin Tour(It’s My Party).

Lopez has returned for another season as the global face of Guessand has been appearing in global advertising campaigns for both Guess and the brand’s more fashion-forward label, Marciano. Lopez also has deals with Versaceand Coach, with more on the way.

Lopez was a Fly Girldancer on In Living Color before she decided to pursue an acting career in 1993. It was the 1997 film Selena, directed by Gregory Nava, that made her a household name and earned her a Golden Globenomination.

Lopez, who has millions of followers on social media, including more than 110 million on Instagram, is part of a new remix of the song “RITMO” — the 2019 single by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin.

Maná Becomes First Act to Perform Seven Shows in One Year at LA’s The Forum

It’s Lucky No. 7 for Manáfans in Los Angeles…

Due to continuing ticket demands, the legendary Mexican rock band has added a seventh show at The Forum in Los Angeles as part of its Rayando El Sol Tour, which kicks of at the end of August.

Mana

The seventh date at the venue, which will take place on December 7, makes Maná the only act in any language or genre to ever play seven dates at the venue as part of a single tour.

“Mana makes history today by becoming the first artist that will perform seven shows in one year at the ‘Fabulous’ Forum since our reopening in 2014,” said a spokesperson for The Forum. “Mana also holds our record for most shows since the reopening at 11. The Forum is proud and honored to be the home to Mana’s historic run of shows.”

Maná, Latin music’s most successful rock band and one of the most prolific and highest-grossing Latin acts in the market, announced dates forRayando el Sol, their first tour in three years, this past February. 

Tickets sales were so strong, that additional dates were added almost immediately, and the tour, originally set to kick off September 4 from Corpus Christi, is now starting August 31 in Laredo.

New dates were also added for Chicago, Oakland, San Jose, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix and Los Angeles. 

Originally, Maná was slated to play four dates at The Forum, which grew to six, and now, seven. 

The group performed on Good Morning America this Wednesday, the same day they streamed an intimate performance for fans on their YouTubechannel in anticipation of their tour.

“Maná is a touring powerhouse,” Bob Roux, president of U.S. concerts for Live Nation, said in a statement back in March, talking about the sellout speed of Maná’s shows. “I’ve never seen an onsale like this in the Latin Market. This puts Maná in the rarefied realm of the biggest bands in the U.S., regardless of language.”

The Rayando el Sol tour will now play 35 stops. The tour takes its name from Maná’s 1989 breakout hit song of the same name.

“It was the song that kicked off our career when we were ready to walk away from it all,” Fher Olvera, Maná’s lead singer, told Billboardearlier this year. “We spent many years with very little money. One time, [drummer] Alex [Gonzalez] spent the night at an apartment in Colonia Roma [the Mexico City neighborhood depicted in Alfonso Cuarón’s film Roma] that didn’t even have furniture. And there, between beers, we wrote the song. At that point, I was ready to work in what I’d studied in college: communications. And Alex was going to return to Miami. But that song allowed us to breath, so we have a real appreciation. It’s a very emblematic song. It’s played everywhere.”

Kirstin Maldonado & Pentatonix to Launch World Tour in May

Kirstin Maldonado is going global…

The 26-year-old half-Mexican/part-Spanish American singer and her Pentatonix group mates will be hitting the road this spring for their upcoming world tour, and they spilled all the details of what fans can expect in a new video, premiering exclusively on Billboard.

Pentatonix

In the clip, the five singers sit down with Live Nationto answer questions about the tour and get quizzed about their fellow bandmates. 

“A lot of new music!” Maldonado says of what to expect, while Scott Hoyingpromises “fun,” “choreo” and “belting” at each show.

Next, the a cappella group plays a rapid-fire round of superlatives, naming which of their bandmates is the biggest prankster (Kirstin), the messiest (a toss-up) and always late (also Kirstin, though beatboxer Kevin Olusolapoints silently to himself).

Another fun fact? If the band could change their name, original members Maldonado, Hoying and Mitch Grassiall agree it would be — wait for it — Fifth Harmony! The girl group may have announced their indefinite hiatus in March 2018, but it’s a good thing CamilaCabello & Co. laid claim to the moniker during The X Factor back in 2012.
