Música Mexicana Icon Ramón Ayala Announces Farewell U.S. Tour

Ramón Ayala is leaving the stage soon. On Feb. 27, the King of the Accordion announced his upcoming The Beginning of An End (El Principio De Un Final) Tour that will wrap up 60 years of musical trajectory. The tour will officially begin at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, CA, and finish back in the City of Angels at the Intuit Dome on Nov. 30.

Ayala, known for playing the accordion, will tour throughout the nation for the greater part of 2024. For one last time, fans will be able to sing along to his accordion on iconic songs like “Mi Piquito De Oro,” “Que Casualidad,” and his signature song “Tragos Amargos.” After his appearance at the Bésame Mucho festival in Austin, TX, on Mar. 2, the extensive tour will hit venues and state fairs in major cities like Atlanta, GA; El Paso, TX; Chicago, IL; and Las Vegas, NV. The tour will wrap up at the new Intuit Dome in Los Angeles, CA. 

At the same time, the famous musician is gearing up to release a new single called “El Retén,” out on Mar. 8. Moreover, he’s partnering with the Fundación Hermes Music (Hermes Music Foundation) to donate guitars to different charities. The new campaign, “Guitarras por la paz [Guitars for Peace],” will donate guitars to institutions like churches, non-profit schools, and detention facilities. It will also donate books to show children how to play the guitar.

Ayala is one of música mexicana’s most popular accordionists and singers. He was part of the iconic duo Los Relámpagos del Norte with vocalist Cornelio Reyna, which helped define the modern norteño sound with songs like “Tengo Miedo” and “Devolución.” Later, he formed his band Ramón Ayala y sus Bravos del Norte, where he released popular songs like “Un Rinconcito En El Cielo” and “Chaparra De Mi Amor.”
