Latin music superstar Luis Miguel will start and conclude his 2018 North American ¡México Por Siempre! tour with concerts in California, beginning with a May 4 show at San Diego’s Mattress Firm Amphitheatre.
On May 6, he will headline for the first time in his career at the Hollywood Bowl, a venue whose pop concerts are exclusively booked by former San Diego promoter Bill Silva and his business partner, Andrew Hewitt.
Miguel’s tour takes its name from his latest album ¡México Por Siempre! (“Mexico Always”). Born in Puerto Rico, the 47-year-old singer was only 14 when he won his first Grammy Award for "Me Gustas Tal Como Eres," a vocal cuet with Sheena Easton.
He has thus far released 33 albums, with worldwide sales of more than 100 million. Miguel has won six Grammy Awards and four Latin Grammy Awards. He also holds the record for the most performances — 223 — at Mexico City’s National Auditorium by any artist.
An urbane balladeer, Miguel specializes in boleros and rancheras. Several years ago, he disclosed that he suffered from tinnitus. But his hearing problems do not appear to have diminished the number of performances he has done with his 23-piece band, which includes 11 mariachis and San Diego percussionist Tommy Aros.
Tickets for Miguel’s ¡México Por Siempre! tour go on sale to the general public on Friday at 10 a.m. local time at LiveNation.com and by phone at (800) 745-3000.
A pre-sale for Citi card holders and Miguel fan club members begins Tuesday at 10 a.m. local time. At least three other pre-sales will take place for his San Diego show; they are listed on livenation.com.
Ticket prices for his San Diego concert range from $39.95 to $500, plus service charges.
