Prince Royce has grown into his status as a major touring act.

When the Latin singer stops at Fresno’s Save Mart Center July 13 it will be his third stop at arena in as many years. Royce played the arena in 2015 on Ariana Grande’s Honeymoon tour and opened for Pitbull on night one of the Bad Man tour last year. He returns to the arena on the U.S. leg of his just announced headlining tour in support of his album “Five,” which was released last week.

Tickets for the show are $39-$117 and available 10 a.m. Friday at the arena box office, online at ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000. VIP package and artist pre-sale tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Tuesday. Ticketmaster and Facebook pre-sales begin 10 a.m. Thursday, according to Ticketmaster.

Royce’s ascension to top billing is no surprise. I said as much in my review of his performance as the arena last year. Over the course of five albums, the singer has built a sizable fan base, has had multiple award wins and chart topping singles – “Culpa Al Corazón,” for one. That song is one of four singles from his latest album, which was D’Lesly “Dice” Lora and features collaborations with Shakira, Farruko, Chris Brown and Zendaya.

Opening for Royce on the tour is Luis Coronel. The Mexican singer is an an up-and-comer in his own right. He is also scheduled to perform at Pueblo Fest in Tulare in March.
