MEXICO CITY – Singer Alejandro Fernandez performed songs from his most recent album, “Confidencias,” for about 10,000 fans at Mexico City’s National Auditorium.
The 42-year-old Mexican singer promised fans at the start of Saturday’s concert that he would give them his “soul, heart and life” after not performing at the venue for a long time.
The concert was one of the stops on Fernandez’s “Confidencias World Tour 2013.”
Fernandez opened with a bit of the “big band” sound, performing “Se me va la voz” and “Concavo y convexo.”
He then changed into a traditional jacket and sang several of his hits, such as “Matalas,” with a group of mariachis.
The most touching moment of the evening came when the singer dedicated some ranchero songs to his father, Vicente Fernandez, calling him “my friend, my example, my confidante and my teacher.”
Vicente Fernandez, considered the leading performer of mariachi music in Mexico, announced his retirement from the stage in early 2012 to spend more time with his family.
Alejandro Fernandez’s tour will take him to the United States, where he will perform at concerts in a dozen cities, including New York, Atlanta and Miami.
