Alejandro Fernandez fans gathered at the Grand Garden Arena at MGM Grand in Las Vegas to celebrate Mexico's Independence with their idol in sky-high heels and mini skirts.
In spite of rumors the desert's air had tarnished his vocals, the singer delivered a 2 and a half hour show hitting all his notes. Stepping out in a classic black suit, Alejandro opened the show with crowd-favorite "Pecadora" and soon after greeted his audience. "It's a pleasure to be with you all here in Las Vegas, we've prepared a great show for you all tonight," he said as they cheered him on. The singer didn't disappoint, after a lengthy romantic ballad set which included "Qué Lástima" among others, he turned it on with a Mariachi band.
At that point everyone was intoxicated by both alcohol and Alejandro's allure, and after a quick video break showcasing Mexico's beauty, he stood in the middle of the arena dressed in full charro get up and commanded everyone to scream along "Viva Mexico! Viva el Bicentenario!" The place went completely wild but not out of control, it was a peaceful celebration that felt most true when Alejandro performed songs like "Mexico Lindo y Querido," and spoke about looking at ourselves if we want any of the current issues solved. He tried to wrap things up but people stomped their feet until he came back out to give them just a little more.
The encore, which included a medley of songs made popular by his father Vicente Fernández like "Mujeres Divinas," "Me Voy a Quitar de En Medio" and "De Que Manera Te Olvido," wrapped the show which got many a "Fantastic" and "Padrísimo!" from fans who'd come from Mexico, San Diego and elsewhere to celebrate their country's independence in Las Vegas of all places.
