The night was full of celebration of music, family and Mexico. Alex Fernandez, joined his father as special guest: serving as opening act and later singing alongside Alejandro during the main act. In one of the more impactful moments of the night, Alex serenaded his father with “El Tiempo No Perdona,” bringing Alejandro to tears. The father-son duo also performed “Mujeres Divinas” by the iconic Vicente Fernandez – grandfather of Alex – who sadly passed away two years ago.

Over the course of 30 years, Alejandro has built an extensive repertoire of music ranging from love ballads, such as “Abrazame” to more pop songs like “Canta Corazon.” With each note, the passion in the singer’s voice resonated with the crowd.

The performer has found ways to reinvent himself while still staying true to his roots and culture. Complete with a full mariachi band and a 30+ song setlist, Alejandro performed many new styles of his greatest hits over the years including, his version of Natanael Cano’s “Amor Tumbado,” which mashes his mariachi style with a more hip-hop sound. Fernandez also played some nostalgic hits such as “Matalas” and “Nube Viajera.”

The Amor Y Patria Tour is a tribute not only to mariachi, but all regional Mexican music. At the same time, it also celebrates the careers of one of the greatest Mexican family musicians in the music industry. Alejandro Fernandez will continue his US tour through the rest of this year.
