Colombian superstar Juanes returns to the Hollywood Bowl on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, for a musical journey through his greatest hits, as well his latest chart-topping album, Mis Planes Son Amarte.
Born and raised in Medellín, Colombia, Juan Esteban Aristizábal – better known as Juanes – has become Latin rock’s leading global ambassador. Hailed by TIME as “one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World,” and The New York Times as “Latin America’s hottest singer-songwriter… a soulful poet with electric guitar,” Juanes has built a distinctive sound that fuses his
love of rock and pop music with smartly crafted, multi-layered songwriting and a deep reverence for the traditional folk and other indigenous rhythms of Colombia and Latin America. With seven multi-platinum studio albums, a critically praised MTV Unplugged release, and Disney soundtrack work to his credit, Juanes has sold millions of albums around the world, notched eleven #1 Billboard singles, held multiple records for Latin rock chart duration, and been recognized with numerous awards, including 25 combined Grammy® and Latin Grammy® Awards.
Frequently recognized as one of Latin music’s leading social media voices (with an online following of over 25 million fans), Juanes has also made several groundbreaking TV and special event appearances, such as the first Spanish-language Grammy performance in a decade, the first Spanish-language performances on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and The TODAY Show plaza concert series.
Juanes has performed at the World Cup, the Vatican’s Festival of Families event with Pope Francis, a bilingual educational performance on Sesame Street, primetime TV tribute concerts to John Lennon and Frank Sinatra, and multiple appearances at The Kennedy Center Honors, Musicares Person of the Year tribute, and the Nobel Peace Prize Concert.

The album’s first advance single, “Fuego,” quickly vaulted to #1 on charts in 17 countries, including Billboard’s “Latin Airplay” chart, notching Juanes’ eleventh #1 single in the United States. The album followed suit, debuting at #1 on the Billboard Latin Album chart, and likewise atop iTunes charts in numerous countries. Upon release, Mis Planes Son Amarte was praised by NBC News as “a stunning visual album…that forges connections between modern man and our ancestral traditions” and received a rare five-star review fromRolling Stone. Juanes’ musical peers recently continued the special recognition for Mis Planes Son Amarte with five additional Latin Grammy nominations – making him the most nominated solo artist in Latin Grammy history – and a Best Latin Pop Grammy nomination.
