Juanes’ live show is a “don’t miss” event, with rave reviews:
“[His show] confirms Juanes as the rare artist — in company with the likes of Bono, and Bruce Springsteen —
with the power to inspire beyond the arena walls.” – Los Angeles Times
“Without exaggerating, I can say that Juanes and his bandmates have never sounded tighter…
he has strived for (and undoubtedly reached) a new level of musicianship…
Whatever you do, don’t miss the chance to check Juanes out when he comes your way” – ABC News
“The Grammy Winning Colombian [Rocker]… Is A Headliner To Seek-Out”- Entertainment Weekly
Likewise, Mon Laferte has quickly become one of Latin music’s most captivating young performers:
“She is probably the most acclaimed artist now in the Latin American alternative scene. But the truth is that Mon Laferte is much more than a figure that can be placed in a specific niche… With her incredible voice… [she] explores different rhythms and styles to bring diversity to truly personal and deeply emotional songs”- Hoy
“Mon Laferte’s dramatic appeal is irresistible, [with] references to vintage pin-ups and rockabilly,
coupled with a soaring vocal range” – Remezcla
The tour announcement follows closely behind recent Latin Grammy wins for both artists. Juanes’ critically-praised, and chart-topping Mis Planes Son Amarte (Latin Music’s first major visual album) received two new awards this year, increasing the Colombian superstar’s career tally to a staggering twenty-five combined GRAMMY & Latin Grammy Awards. With a rare five-starRolling Stone review and pick as “One of the best albums of 2017,” Mis Planes Son Amarte also just earned a 2018 GRAMMY nomination for “Best Latin Pop Album.” Hailed by TIME as “one of the 100 Most-Influential People in the World,” and The New York Times as “Latin America’s soulful poet,” Juanes has built a distinctive sound that fuses his love of rock & pop, with multi-layered songwriting, and a deep reverence for the traditional folk and other indigenous rhythms of the continent. With eight multi-platinum albums to his credit, Juanes has notched eleven #1 Billboard singles, and holds multiple chart records. He is also one of Latin music’s leading social media voices and a dedicated global activist, with wide ranging charitable efforts.
Mexico City based, Chilean singer-songwriter Mon Laferte is “One of the rising stars of the Latin music world.” Following the release of her new album “La Trenza,” MTV named Mon Laferteas this year’s Best Artist In Mexico, while NPR, All Music, The New York Times and more have also applauded the album. Most recently, “La Trenza,” received an impressive five Latin Grammy nominations, with Mon Laferte taking home the award for “Best Alternative Song”- recognizing “Amárrame,” her hit duet with new tour partner Juanes.
