Mexican-American Country Star Louie TheSinger Announces 2024 Desperado Tour

Louie TheSinger is blazing a trail for Latines in country music. Today (Mar. 25), the rising Mexican-American star announced his 2024 Desperado Tour dates.

Louie TheSinger, born Luis Alfonso Palacios II, hails from Fort Worth, TX. While trying to get his music career off the ground as an R&B singer, he was put in jail in 2018 for selling drugs. After completing a two-year sentence, Louie TheSinger channeled his hardships into country music. In 2022, he released his first country album, Country My Way. Louie TheSinger’s biggest hits include “Down Here” featuring Paul Wall, “IRDGAD,” and “Just Be Me.”

Fresh off his breakthrough as a country music artist, Louie TheSinger will embark on his 2024 Desperado Tour. His first headlining tour will kick off on Jun. 15 at the House of Blues in Orlando, FL. Throughout June and July, Louie The Singer will perform in concerts across the U.S., including in major cities like Dallas, TX; Chicago, IL; Phoenix, AZ; Los Angeles, CA; and Las Vegas, NV. The tour will wrap on Jul. 27 at the Underground in Charlotte, NC.

Pre-sale tickets for the Desperado Tour will be available tomorrow, Mar. 26, and Thursday, Mar. 28, at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets for the general public will go on sale on Friday, Mar. 29, at 10 a.m. local time.

Back in November, Louie TheSinger signed a record contract with UMG Nashville to further his country music career. The label is home to country music stars like Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Mickey Guyton, and Alan Jackson.

“I’m ready to disrupt country music (in a good way),” he shared in a statement at the time. “I’m just tryna add a little spice and make my people proud. It’s time Mexican Americans have a voice in this country world and I’m here for it.”
