Pepe Aguilar’s enthusiasts are in for a treat as the Tejano singer-songwriter returns with the Jaripeo Sin Fronteras 2021 tour, resuming Friday night (Sept. 3) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and traveling through 17 other cities before wrapping Dec. 5 in San Jose, Calif.
Produced by Live Nation, the tour picks up after its run in the U.S. and Mexico in 2018-19. The 18-date leg sports a crew of 150, including 40 stage musicians, backed by Aguilar’s band El Mariachi “El Zacatecano,” the musical accompaniment of Sinaloa’s Banda MS and his brother Antonio Aguilar, daughter Angela Aguilar and son Leonardo Aguilar.
The experience includes rodeo and equestrian acrobatic performances, bull riders and charrería competitions, among other surprises, in addition to Aguilar’s musical catalog that spans over 30 years and is punctuated by Billboard chart hits.
Aguilar first stepped onto Billboard rankings with his breakthrough track “Recuérdame Bonito,” a No. 12 Hot Latin Songs hit in March 1993. Since then, he’s tallied 29 total entries on the multi-metric chart, including nine top 10s.
Ahead of the Jaripeo Sin Fronteras experience, here are six songs confirmed to be part of the tour’s setlist that hit Billboard charts.
