Pepe Aguilar is a multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter who has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide. That makes him a bonafide Mexican-American icon, beloved on both sides of the border.

The San Antonio-born Aguilar — by chance, his parents happened to be on tour here on his day of birth — is also an actor and belongs to a family of popular singers and actors. Excelling at everything from mariachi and ranchera music to Latin rock and pop, the 50-year-old performer can blend or switch styles song to song in a way that makes him a touchstone for other artists seeking larger audiences via a fusion of American and Latin styles.



Calling Aguilar — who’s been onstage since he was 3 — a consummate, can’t-miss performer would actually be an understatement.

$42-$182.50, Sat Aug. 24, 8 p.m., AT&T Center, One AT&T Center, (210) 444-5000, attcenter.com.
