Following the release of Origen, an album stacked with covers spanning five decades of Latin classic hits and other global masterworks that shaped his life, Juanes returns to U.S. concert stages with a 20-date run launching with two dates at Fillmore Theatre in Miami Beach, starting Thursday night (Sept. 16) and wrapping Oct. 17 in New York City.
The covers set featuring classics by Juan Gabriel, The Beatles, Joe Arroyo, Bruce Springsteen, Juan Luis Guerra, Joaquín Sabina and other greats, will embark on a road trip through Juanes’ Origen Tour, an exploration of his musical roots. The experience will also journey back to his songbook, some of the most recognizable tunes in his musical vein, coinciding with Hispanic Heritage Month in September and October.
Through his more than 30 years of music, Juanes has provided immersive and forward-looking tunes that sway from traditional pop fused with vallenato and cumbia to alternative rock-permeated songs. Ahead of Thursday night’s kick-off performance, here are seven tracks Billboard can confirm he’ll be performing, out of his 34 hits on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, most of which took over atop the chart.
