Maná bringing its ‘Rayando el Sol’ tour to San Diego on Sunday

The world’s most popular Mexican pop-rock band, which has a dozen Grammy wins to its credit, is now embarked on its first tour in three years


The title of Maná’s ongoing “Rayando el Sol” (“Reaching for the Sun”) tour is drawn from the Mexican pop-rock band’s 1989 breakthrough song, but the four-man group isn’t resting on its laurels.

Earlier this month, the Guadalajara-bred band set a record with seven consecutive Los Angeles concerts at The Forum, which each drew more than 15,000 fans.

In 2018, Maná — which features lead singer Fher Olvera, guitarist Sergio Vallín, bassist Juan Calleros and drummer Alex González — became the first band to receive the Latin Recording Academy’s Person of the Year award, an honor previously accorded such superstars as Plácido Domingo, Shakira and former Tijuana guitarist Carlos Santana.

It remains to be seen if Maná’s Sunday concert here will include a cameo by armless San Diego guitar sensation Mark “Big Toe” Goffeney, whose 2016 guest spot with the band here at Viejas Arena went viral.

Maná: 8 p.m. Sunday. North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre, 2050 Entertainment Circle, Chula Vista. $39.50-$240, plus service charges.
