Luis Miguel Announces U.S. Summer Tour
Anna Wong – Luis Miguel
Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.
Luis Miguel announced an 18-date U.S. arena tour on Monday.
The massively popular Mexican musician will begin his trek at Phoenix’s Talking Stick Resort Arena on June 1 and will conclude it on July 6 at UTEP Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas, where he sold 6,748 tickets and grossed $1.09 million last September.
In 2018, Miguel grossed $61.5 million globally, placing him at No. 26 on Pollstar‘s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart. The major tour also won Favorite Tour at the Latin American Music Awards. His upcoming tour routes him through several venues he played — and, in many cases, sold out — just a year ago.
On June 9, Miguel will play Allstate Arena in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Ill., where he sold 12,242 tickets and grossed $1.49 million in May 2018. He’ll hit Houston’s Toyota Center on June 29, where he sold 11,690 tickets and grossed $1.48 million, also in May 2018.
Miguel’s June 23 stop at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena will be a hot ticket: In June 2018, he sold out two nights at the venue, selling 14,098 tickets and grossing $2.25 million.
Miguel will also hit some fresh cities, including Oklahoma City and Uniondale, N.Y., on June 4 and June 12, respectively. And his appearance at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo., marks his first time performing there since an October 2008 date at the same venue.
Miguel’s 2018 continued his perennial live dominance this decade. He appeared on Pollstar‘s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart in 2011, 2013 and 2015, grossing a total of $88.7 million during those three years.
And though Miguel’s chart-topping days may be behind him — between 1987 and 2003, he notched 16 No. 1 hits on Billboard‘s Hot Latin Songs chart — he remains a critical force: His most recent studio album, 2017’s ¡México Por Siempre!, took home the Grammy for Best Regional Mexican Music Album in February. The record also took home Album of the Year and Best Ranchero Album at the 2018 Latin Grammy Awards.
Tickets for Miguel’s upcoming tour go on sale March 15 at 10 a.m. local time. Find a list of dates below.
