Why Luis Miguel Is (Still) One of Latin Music’s Biggest Pop Stars

tazz | May 23, 2023

Forty years since launching his career, Luis Miguel is one of Latin America’s biggest pop stars today.

Shortly after announcing his highly-anticipated tour on April 19, the crooner — and one of the top vocalists of his generation — sold out multiple dates on the 40-plus dates stint that is set to kick off Aug. 3 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

How? A reminder that before Bad Bunny broke box office records, the “Ahora Te Puedes Marchar” singer was the top grossing Latin touring act. Luis Miguel’s Mexico Por Siempre Tour (2018-19) grossed $101.4 million and sold 965,000 tickets across 116 shows. It was the highest-grossing Latin tour in Boxscore history until last year when Bad Bunny and Daddy Yankee passed him.

Following multiple shows in Argentina and Chile, the Luis Miguel Tour 2023 will anchor in the U.S. visiting major cities such as Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami and Los Angeles. The tour, produced by CMN, will then head to Mexico where it will wrap up Dec. 17 in Guadalajara, Jalisco.

Without even having to drop new music — his last album was ¡MÉXICO Por Siempre! in 2017 and won album of the year at the Latin Grammy Awards — the elusive artist continues to be a mainstay on the Billboard charts (as the pop artist with the most entries on the Hot Latin Songs survey) and a top touring act across the U.S. and Latin America.

Below, five reasons why Luis Miguel is still one of Latin music’s biggest pop stars four decades since becoming “El Sol de México (The Mexican Sun)”:
