Christian Nodal To Embark on 31-Date ‘Foraji2 Tour’ This Fall
Mexican star Christian Nodal, known for fusing mariachi with the accordion that is popular in música norteña to create what he coined as “mariacheño,” will trek out to the United States for his “Foraji2 Tour 2023,” Cárdenas Marketing Network (CMN) announced Monday.
During the 31-date tour, the Grammy Award-winning Sonora-born singer will visit some of the country’s most popular venues, such as Kia Forum in Los Angeles, California and New York’s UBS Arena. Nodal will start his run on Aug. 25 at Anaheim’s Honda Center and make stops at Chicago’s Allstate Arena, Austin’s H-E-B Center, Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center, Miami’s Kaseya Center and Seattle’s Wamu Theater before closing in Reading, Pennsylvania, at Santander Arena on Nov. 12.
“Being on stage and sharing my music with fans is where I feel the most myself,” Christian Nodal, who has been preparing the new show for months, said in a statement. “I can’t wait to be with my fans to show them this new show that will have many surprises and of course, a lot of great music that celebrates Mexican culture in the way that it deserves.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public on May 13 at 10 a.m. local time. A presale exclusive to Amazon Music users can be accessed May 10-13. Fans can purchase presale tickets by downloading the Amazon Music app to receive the exclusive code and then visiting cmnevents.com.
Nodal is one of several notable events from CMN this year that celebrate Latin music and Mexican culture.
“There is no denying the popularity and reach of regional Mexican music, which is why it has always been important to our company,” Alex Cardenas, director of tours at CMN, said in a statement. “We are proud to once again produce Christian Nodal’s new tour, given that as one of the greats of Latin music, he continues to break records and barriers.”
The popular Mexican musician has grossed nearly $23 million from 48 headline shows reported to the Pollstar BoxOffice. Nodal performed a sold-out concert at FTX Arena in Miami, Florida, on Nov. 11, selling 11,331 tickets and earning $1,169,237. He was among Pollstar’s Top 200 Worldwide Tours in 2022, grossing $17 million from 27 shows reported.
