It pays to be a Juanes fan! The Colombian rock star offered some of his loyal listeners the ultimate insider experience this past weekend while prepping for his upcoming Loco de Amor tour. The Latin Grammy winner’s tour organizers partnered with one radio station in each tour market for the “Ultimate Fan Experience” promo, which gave a select group of lucky fans a sneak peek at what’s expected on the tour, all from the coziness of Juanes’ recording studio in Miami. The promo ran for three weeks, after which close to 50 fans were flown in from different cities to experience the intimate rehearsal on June 12. Those same fans also won tickets to see Juanes live in their home city during the tour.
“We’ve got the best company ever today during rehearsal. Thank you all for being here,” posted Juanes on Instagram:
Then he shared a 15-second video singing his hit “Volverte a Ver” with the caption, “This is everything that I want to do” (a lyric from the song):
And of course, he couldn’t forget to take a selfie:
The U.S. leg of Juanes’s Loco de Amor world tour kicks off July 28 at the Rabobank Theater in Bakersfield, Calif. and wraps in December at Miami’s American Airlines Arena. Ximena Sariñana will join as a special guest on 20 stateside dates.
Juanes — who will tour Europe before embarking on the U.S. leg of the tour — recently collaborated with French DJ/producer Cedric Gervais on a new EDM track called “Este Amor” (This Love), which he debuted at the Sunset Music Festival in Tampa.
