Chilean singer-songwriter Norma Monserrat Bustamante Laferte — better known as Mon Laferte — has announced a headlining U.S. tour, slated for August.
After delivering a standout performance at Coachella’s main stage in April, Laferte will return for an 11-day run in the States. She will be touring in support of her 2018 album, Norma; a jubilant work of pan-Latin fusion, the LP was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by The Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. Backed by a three-piece band and a mighty horn section, Laferte breathes rock ‘n’ roll into her tropical folk-pop repertoire.
“I feel that it’s very important to sing music in Spanish on the main stage, because that reflects a change in the world,” she told Rolling Stone backstage at Coachella. “Language isn’t a problem anymore, and I feel very happy about that.”
Produced by Live Nation, ‘La Gira de Norma’ will kick off August 10th in Seattle’s Neptune Theatre. Laferte will make 10 more stops, including in Los Angeles, Houston, San Antonio and Atlanta, before closing August 29th in Silver Springs, MD.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, May 31st at 10am local time at LiveNation.com.
