In a major twist in his traditional touring form, Colombian star Juanes has paired up with rising alt/chanteuse Mon Laferte and together they’ll launch their 2018 North American Amarte Tour. Mexican artist Caloncho will be the opening act. The trek is scheduled to kick off April 20 in Orlando’s Amway Center and will hit a mix of arenas and theaters in 15 additional cities, ending May 20 in Temecula’s Pechanga Theatre.
Both Juanes and Mon Laferte launch the tour fresh from winning a Latin Grammy for their collaboration “Amárrame." Juanes also won a Latin Grammy for best pop/rock album.
“It’s the first time a do a tour of this magnitude,” Mon LaFerte told Billboard at Casa Buchanan’s during Latin Grammy week, when the tour was still in its planning stages.
