He's at it again this year, which is said to be his most extensive tour with a bigger production execution. And again, fans will not be taking this news sitting down. They're on the run now for tickets. If you don't want to miss this, do the same. Get your tickets now!
Juan Gabriel's concert clocks an average of 2 hours straight, non-stop, or even more. His eclectic and unpredictable repertoire, line-up, and adlibs can vary on every show, depending on how his emotions would carry him. Perhaps, this is Gabriel's ways of giving back, in return for the love, loyalty, and years of support that his fans have bestowed on him. At the age of 21, in the year 1971, Gabriel clinched a recording contract with RCA Records. After 15 albums and 20 million records sold, he made his acting debut in 1975.
