Latin Grammy winning and multi-platinum selling Mexican superstar Alejandro Fernandez, whose new album CONFIDENCIAS on Universal Music Latino debuted at #1 on the Billboard Latin charts and #19 on the Billboard Top 200, kicked off hisALEJANDRO FERNANDEZ CONFIDENCIAS WORLD TOUR 2013 with sold out shows in Miami and Atlanta this weekend. His exultant audience was ecstatic and rewarded his amazing vocals and world class production with standing ovations and sing-alongs at every turn.
The weekend shows were the first of a dozen performances that will take Fernandez and his entirely new production to major markets in the US including New York, Los Angeles, bChicago, Houston and El Paso. $1.00 of every ticket sold on the tour goes to Maestro Cares, which seeks to ensure the wellness of homeless and neglected children throughout Latin America.
THE CONFIDENCIAS tour promises an unprecedented production from one of the most iconic voices in Mexican musical history. The dazzling show pays homage to Mexico via Fernandez’s exceptional mariachi, orchestra and vocal prowess, featuring a collection of his greatest hits, including traditional “rancheras”, pop hits and songs from his new album CONFIDENCIAS.
Renewed musical arrangements and innovative technology featuring mobile structures in which more than 230 robotic lights dance along with a giant screen give life to breathtaking scenes from Mexico accompany “El Potrillo” throughout his country. The images portray some of Mexico’s most important and beautiful resources: Its people, its traditions, its architecture and its folklore. The costumes are also fascinating, including handmade looms from the Mexican state of Chiapas, shawls from Michoacan, and traditional “charro” suits from Jalisco. Fernandez will premiered the show at Auditorio Telmex in his home city of Guadelarjara and brought it to to his 11th annual El Grito performance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Fernandez released his critically acclaimed new album CONFIDENCIAS on August 27th. Since then it has gone #1 on 19 countries. Recorded in Los Angeles last summer, the album is available in two formats, standard and deluxe, with 11 tracks and 15 tracks plus a DVD, respectively. Featuring duets with Christina Aguilera, Rod Stewart and Vicente Fernandez “Confidencias” was produced by the late legendary producer Phil Ramone.
The album gathers some of the most relevant classic tunes from Latin America and Spain with new arrangements by Ramone, powerfully performed by Fernandez. The first single and video from the album, Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti, features Christina Aguilera and was the theme song to Univision’s prime time soap, La Tempestad.
Alejandro just launched the second single from the album, “Me olvidé de vivir”, which he recorded with his father, the legendary Vicente Fernandez. The two had not recorded together for over 20 years, and the emotional new video for the single documents moments from that recording session and features never-seen childhood photos and videos of Alejandro and his family. A preview of the video will go live on November 25th and the worldwide premiere of the official video will be launched on November 29th both will be available online, exclusively on VEVO.
