Latin Rock’s leading global ambassador and the most-awarded solo artist in Latin Grammy history, Juanes, today announces the 2018 North American “Amarte Tour” with Latin Alternative’s new leading-lady Mon Laferte.
The tour announcement follows closely behind recent Latin Grammy wins for both artists. Juanes’ critically-praised, and chart-topping, “Mis Planes Son Amarte,” (Latin Music’s first major visual album) received two new awards this year, increasing the Colombian superstar’s career tally to a staggering 25 combined Grammy & Latin Grammy Awards. With a rare five-star Rolling Stone review and pick as “one of the best albums of 2017,” “Mis Planes Son Amarte” also recently earned a 2018 Grammy nomination for “Best Latin Pop Album.” Hailed by TIME as “one of the 100 most influential people in the World,” and The New York Times as “Latin America’s soulful poet,” Juanes has built a distinctive sound that fuses his love of rock and pop, with multi-layered songwriting, and a deep reverence for the traditional folk and other indigenous rhythms of the continent. With eight multi-platinum albums to his credit, Juanes has notched 11 number one Billboard singles, and holds multiple chart records. He is also one of Latin music’s leading social media voices and a dedicated global activist, with wide ranging charitable efforts.
