“CMN is excited to welcome back such an important and celebrated artist like Juan Gabriel,” said CMN President/CEO Henry Cardenas. “Juan Gabriel is not only a musical innovator, but also a cultural game-changer. His music has been embraced by this country by countless nationalities for decades and he continues to be an inspiration for many artists. We can’t wait to see him fill every stage during this exciting tour, which will feature his brilliant Mariachi band and full orchestra on a 360-degree stage.”
Gabriel is one of the highest-grossing touring artists in the world and one of the best-selling Latin recording artists of all-time with sales of more than 100 million albums. His music has remained among the most popular throughout Latin America and Spain. Gabriel, a six-time GRAMMY nominee, was inducted into the Billboard Latin Music Hall of Fame in 1996 and has received countless industry awards including ASCAP Songwriter of the Year (1995), Latin Recording Academy’s Person of the Year (2009) and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
His music has served as an inspiration to the Mexican film, “Que Le Dijiste a Dios?,” which premiered earlier this month to wide acclaim. The film features 14 Gabriel songs including hits such as “El Noa Noa,” “La Farsante,” “No Me Vuelvo A Enamorar” and “Pero Que Necesidad,” among others.
