Mónica Naranjo will bring her world tour to the U.S. this fall. On Friday (June 7), the Spanish pop icon announced the stateside dates for her Puro Hits World Tour.

Naranjo is one of Spain’s most beloved pop stars in Latin America and the U.S. Like Belinda and Rocío Dúrcal, she has a strong fanbase in Mexico specifically. In 1994, Naranjo broke through with her self-titled debut album, which featured the hit “Fuego De Pasión.” That was a Spanish-language cover Donna Summer’s “Love’s About to Change My Heart.” She thrived in dance music with her 1997 album Palabra De Mujer. Many of Naranjo’s hits have become hits for anthems for the LGBTQ+ community, including the empowering “Sobreviviré.”

“30 years have arrived!” Naranjo shared in a statement about the 30th anniversary of her career. “We continue on with the same drive, the same intensity, but with more energy and excitement. Soon we will kick off a new tour in Latin America and the U.S that I am passionate about and that gives me life.”

The U.S. leg of Naranjo’s Puro Hits World Tour includes only two dates so far. She will visit the Rosemont Theatre in Chicago, IL, on Oct. 4. Then Naranjo will hit the stage of Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, CA, on Oct. 12. The press release states that these are the “first dates confirmed,” which implies she could announce more U.S. stops soon. Tickets for both shows are now on sale to the general public.

Naranjo also announced the Latin American dates of the Puro Hits World Tour. She will visit the Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile, on Dec. 12. Next year, Naranjo will perform concerts in Mexico on Jan.  23 in Mexico City and Jan. 25 in Guadalajara. In 2022, she released her most recent album, Mimétika, featuring collaborations with Bunbury and Mastodonte.
