Juan Gabriel kicked off the U.S. leg of the tour on 4/3 and 4/4 with two sold out shows at the Allstate Center in Chicago, where the Chicago Tribune raved, “…like a conquering hero…(Gabriel) once again displayed his total command of the stage. His 2.5-hour concert Friday, with its impeccable showmanship and boundless energy, confirmed that he’s the reigning king (elder statesman division) of the Latin pop realm.”
Sold out shows at Madison Square Garden, the Toyota Center in Houston and Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas followed. On Sunday night at Mandalay Bay, Gabriel, known affectionately as “Juanga” by fans, played his full show plus 30 minutes beyond his curtain time to appease the crowds who were on their feet for the full 3 hours and have waited over 7 years to see him tour.
