Alejandro Fernández announced the release of his new single titled “No Es Que Me Quiera Ir.” The “ranchero-ballad” written by Eden Muñoz is the story of a broken-hearted man, learning to let love go, because it is no longer reciprocated. This song is sure to join Fernández’s extensive repertoire of number 1 hits. Alejandro became the first Latino artist to achieve number one albums in 4 consecutive decades – 1990’s, 2000’s, 2010’s and 2020.
In conjunction with this release, this Saturday, May 20th, Fernández will perform to a SOLD-OUT audience at the Monumental Plaza de Toros México – better known as “La Monumental” – the biggest bullring in the world. This special presentation comes almost 40 years after his legendary father Vicente Fernández performed in the same arena. The 360-degree production guarantees an unforgettable experience for all fans.
A few weeks later, he will cross the Atlantic to kick off his ‘Amor y Patria’ tour in Spain, a much-anticipated return from his fans after a 5 years absence. This show will have an unprecedented production, and fans will be able to re-live and sing along all his greatest hits like “Me Dediqué a Perderte,” “Tantita Pena,” and “Como Quien Pierde Una Estrella.”
The ‘Amor y Patria’ tour will arrive in the U.S in September to kick off Fiestas Patrias celebrations with his fans in North America. The the 22- date tour will start in Sacramento on September 8th, making stops in major cities like Los Angeles, Miami, NY, Chicago, including his first ever performances in Toronto and Oklahoma City. Continuing the family tradition, his son Alex will be accompanying him on most shows.
Alejandro has a long history of helping others through his music and shows. Most recently he funded a children’s music school in his native Guadalajara, which is part of ECOS Música Para la Paz, a social program promoted by the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Jalisco. This center, which carries the Mexican singer’s name, was inaugurated last Thursday, May 11th, where 150 minors between the ages of 6 and 16 became the first generation of future musicians sponsored by ECOS and the Alejandro Fernández Foundation (FAF).
A portion of his U.S tour’s proceeds will support Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino. For the last twenty years, the organization has fought to bring the previous 500 years of U.S. Latino history to light by creating a National Museum of the American Latino on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. His 2021 U.S tour raised over $100,000 for “Families Belong Together” to unite immigrant parents and children separated at the US border.
