TEMECULA, Calif. (December 5, 2017) – Latin Rock’s leading global ambassador and the most-awarded solo artist in Latin Grammy history, Juanes, takes the stage at the Pechanga Summit, the brand new 40,000 square foot event center added as part of the $285 million expansion at Pechanga Resort & Casino.

The “Amarte 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 just 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 eleven #1 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.
Mexico City-based, Chilean singer-songwriter Mon Laferte is “One of the rising stars of the Latin music world.” Following the release of her new album “La Trenza,” MTV named Mon Laferte as this year’s Best Artist In Mexico, while NPR, All Music, The New York Times, and more have also applauded the album. Most recently, “La Trenza,” received an impressive five Latin Grammy nominations, with Mon Laferte taking home the award for “Best Alternative Song”- recognizing “Amárrame,” her hit duet with new tour partner Juanes.
