Luis Miguel

Mexican singer/superstar Luis Miguel is back on the concert circuit.

The Grammy-winning singer, who's been performing since he was a child, is touring in support of his latest album "Mexico Por Siempre!" The tour stopped recently at The Allstate Arena in Rosemont.

Miguel's tour began May 4 in San Diego and will continue through early September. The singer who's known for his blend of powerful and lush vocals, proved he's still able to deliver in the performance arena.

Miguel's show was scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. but the singer didn't take the stage until close to 9:30 p.m. However, he performed more than two hours, so the late start didn't anger his audience too much.

The playlist starred winning renditions of "Tu, Solo Tu,"  the upbeat "Amor, Amor, Amor" and "La Barca" and "La Mentira," which were done in a different arrangement accompanied by piano.

The singer's set featured a large video screen which had colorful images flashed across it. The mariachi segment starred a massive photo of pyramids projected on the screen.

It's a tradition for Miguel to bring the best of the best of mariachi players to the stage at all of his concerts and he's doing that once again on this tour. More than a dozen musicians skilled in mariachi music were spotlighted for their passionate violin and guitar playing.

Miguel performed the engaging "Mexico Por Siempre!" and "La Fiesta Del Mariarchi" with the mariachi group.

A variety of numbers featured medleys. Among other songs performed were "Sabes Una Cosa," "Devuelveme el Amor," "Llamarada," "Isabel," and one of his biggest hits "Cuando Calienta El Sol."

The singer, who usually draws big crowds to his concerts around the world, is also currently in the television spotlight. A 13-part series about his life, which he co-produced, debuted on Telemundo and Netflix in late April. The series, titled "Luis Miguel: La Serie," stars actor/singer Diego Boneta.

The series was meant to coincide and debut just ahead of Miguel's tour.
