Backed by big screen images of the Mexican landscape and a robotic light show, singer Alejandro Fernandez -- whose "Confidencias" debuted at No. 1 this week on the Top Latin Albums -- will tour the U.S. this fall.
Fernandez will perform Sept. 15th in Las Vegas for his 11th annual "El Grito" concert there before embarking on his "Confidencias" tour in Miami on Nov. 16. Eleven dates have been announced, including stops in five Texan cities, and concerts in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Chicago.
According to tour promoter Cardenas Marketing Network, Fernandez will perform a spectacular show paying homage to Mexican culture. "Breathtaking scenes… of Mexico’s most important and beautiful resources: its traditions, its architecture and its folklore" will accompany a charro-suited Fernandez on a big screen as he sings some of his greatest hits with new arrangements, as well as songs from the new album.
Fernandez, known for his vocal command of both traditional ranchera ballads and romantic pop songs, had his best sales week in his 20-plus year career as "Confidencias," out on Universal Music Latino, debuted at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums. The album, his 15th studio production, sold 21,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album premiered at No. 19 on the Billboard 200.
The album features interpretations of Latin classics, including Miguel Gallardo’s "Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti", a duet with Christina Aguilera, the album’s first single and the theme song to the Univision soap opera "La Tempestad." Rod Stewart guests with Fernandez on a bilingual version of Stewart’s "Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out." "Confidencias" also features Fernandez’s first collaboration with his father, Regional Mexican icon Vicente Fernandez, in over 20 years on "Me Olvide de Vivir".
"Confidencias" was the last production by the late, legendary producer Phil Ramone.
