Mon Laferte will embark on her first U.S. tour this fall, visiting major cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Las Vegas, the Chilean singer-songwriter shares exclusively with Billboard.
The 12-date trek will kick off Nov. 6 in Washington. D.C. and will wrap up Nov. 23 in San Francisco. “It will be a very special trip for me because this is my first tour in the U.S. and my whole band will be with me, they are my best friends. ” the “Amor Completo” says Laferte.
The up-and-coming singer, whose unique style and powerful vocals have enticed fans in Latin America, says the audience can expect a “theatrical style concert” during her presentations in the States. “I’m an actress trapped in the body of a singer, so the principal idea is to be able to provoke certain things, my thing is drama and performance. Fans should be prepared for anything extreme and to hear a very good band, ver Latin and also very old school with jazz and cabaret influences.”
After a few performances in the U.S., Mon Laferte, who currently lives in Mexico City, says the Latin community here inspired her to write a new song. “I notice how united Latinos are in general and that makes me very excited. I was so excited that I wrote a song, since I felt happier than ever to be Latin. We are very fortunate to have this skin. Latin people in the world are beautiful, warm and wherever you are, they will make you feel at home.”
