Alejandro Fernandez talks Amor Y Patria tour, father Vicente, grief

For Alejandro Fernández, a Mexican music icon and son of the late Vicente “Chente” Fernández, it’s “never going to be easy” getting up on stage and performing after the death of his father in 2021.

“It’s going to be on your mind your whole life,” Fernández, 51, says in an interview conducted in Spanish. “I’m always going to miss him … the important thing is trying to overcome this and being able to dedicate my show(s) to my father.”

That’s what Fernández is setting out to do this fall.

In an exclusive interview with USA TODAY, Fernández revealed he is embarking on a new North American tour, his first in the U.S. since Vicente’s death. The 21-date Amor Y Patria tour kicks off Sept. 8 in Sacramento, California, at the Golden 1 Center and will continue with shows in major cities including Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, New York and Las Vegas. The tour will conclude in Miami on Oct. 22.
