Alejandro Fernández Announces 2020 'Hecho En México' World Tour
Mexican rancheras star and Latin pop singer Alejandro Fernández has announced dates for his Hecho En México World Tour. The 28-date trek, which kicks off this May and runs through December, will take the revered singer across North America and Europe and will include his debut shows in Toronto, Canada, London and Paris.
The newly added global tour dates are an extension of the initial leg of the Hecho En México trek, which he announced last November and runs across his native Mexico for multiple dates starting this month.
The tour is named after his forthcoming album, Hecho En México, Spanish for "Made In Mexico," which releases this Friday (Feb. 14). The album, which features collaborations with Christian Nodal, Luis Carlos Monroy, Jorge Massias and Chico Elizalde with production by Áureo Baqueiro, sees Fernández returning to his mariachi and ranchera roots.
Alejandro Fernández is considered ranchera royalty. He is the son of ranchera icon Vicente Fernández, the latter of whom is widely known as El Rey De La Música Ranchera, or The King Of Ranchera Music, for his dominance in the traditional Mexican music genre. Alejandro is also the father of Alex Fernández, a rising ranchera singer.
Last November, the Fernández clan stole the show at the 20th Latin GRAMMYs when the three of them performed live onstage together for the first time ever, delivering a moving performance spanning three generations of ranchera music and culture.
In 1997, Alejandro Fernández released his sixth album, Me Estoy Enamorando (I'm Falling In Love), which marked his departure from ranchera music and expansion into the wider Latin pop canon. The platinum-selling album topped the Latin Pop Albums and Top Latin Albums charts in the U.S. and received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Latin Pop Performance. Fernández received his most recent GRAMMY nomination, for Best Mexican-American Performance, for his 1999 album, Mi Verdad. He has also won two Latin GRAMMY Awards.
Tickets for Fernández's 2020 Hecho En México World Tour go on sale Friday, Feb. 14, at 9 a.m. local time. For more information and for the full tour routing, visit his official website.
