Nine-time Grammy-winning Pepe Aguilar will reprise his top selling arena tour PEPE AGUILAR PRESENTA JARIPEO SIN FRONTERAS this year, kicking off April 5th in León, Guanajuato.

US dates are produced by CMN, and tickets go on sale this Friday, March 22. See full itinerary below. It was Pepe’s vision to adapt the legendary Aguilar family’s touring tradition of Jaripeo for a new generation, an equestrian-musical extravaganza combined with rodeo. The nearly 3-hour show brings together bull riders, trick riders, 15 beautiful horses, rope tricks on horseback, tech and pyro, plus musical performances from Pepe, his daughter Angela and son Leonardo, both of which have been nominated for Grammys and Latin Grammys. It’s a multi-generation show for all ages.
During his equestrian performance, Pepe will ride several of his beautiful Andalusian horses, 9-year-old white mount Tornado and 14-year-old black mount Botas, 8 year old Poncho and 9 year old Hércules. Andalusians are the Pure Spanish Horse or PRE (pura raza española), a breed from the Iberian Peninsula, where its ancestors have lived for thousands of years. They are known for their intelligence, sensitivity and docility.
The 2018 edition of the tour JARIPEO SIN FRONTERAS was named one of the top tours of the year. Selling out huge arenas like American Airlines Center in Dallas (12,000) and SAP Center in San Jose (11,000) in the US, as well as El Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City, La Plaza de Toros Nuevo Progreso in Guadalajara and Plaza Monumental in Aguascalientes, México.

Pepe Aguilar made his debut at Madison Square Garden at the age of three performing on horseback with his father Antonio Aguilar who, with his family, toured the entire American continent with the Espectáculo Ecuestre Internacional and Rodeo Show. It was the first equestrian show in the history of Latin show business, built around various life stock disciplines with horses, bulls, buffalos, monkey’s, and more. “It was like a Ringling Brothers Mexican Style. He even had folkloric ballet.” It was one of the most successful shows of the time. Don Antonio, Doña Flor Silvestre (both parents were acclaimed actors from the golden age of Mexican cinema) along with little Toño and Pepe Aguilar changed the direction of Mexican music forever and became a standard by which the genre was judged.
Pepe Aguilar went on to become one of the most important performers/producers/songwriters in Latin music, selling more than 12 million albums, earning 15 #1 records and numerous awards including four Grammys and five Latin Grammys and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next to his father. He has collaborated with artists such as will.i.am and Julieta Venegas. Aguilar picked this moment to reclaim the traditions of jaripeo for himself, his family and his fans.
