Julión Álvarez y su Norteño Banda announced dates for the American leg of its Mis Idolos … Hoy Mis Amigos tour, which kicks off July 15 in San Jose.

Local fans of the the Mexican-music superstar will happily note that the tour includes a stop at Fresno’s Save Mart Center. Álvarez and his band will play the arena on Nov. 20, which is the last date on the tour.

Tickets for the show are $49-$159 and on sale 10 a.m. Friday, May 13, at the Save Mart Center box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com and by phone at 800-745-3000.

Álvarez is known for his concert productions, which tend to sell out, to the point that the singer has been referred to as “El rey de la taquilla” – The King of the Box Office. The 22-date tour also includes shows at the Forum in Los Angeles and New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Julión Álvarez y su Norteño Banda is one of the most renowned interpreters of regional Mexican music, earning the singer Latin Grammy nominees and three No. 1 turns on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart – the latest for his album “Mis Idolos, Hoy Mis Amigos,” which was released last month.

This is not Álvarez’s first time through Fresno. He played in 2013 at the Rainbow Ballroom.
