Alejandra Guzman and Gloria Trevi have been making their mark at venues across the world with the first shared tour by the Mexican singers. On Sept 30, they made a stop at Infinite Energy Arena, Duluth, Ga., entertaining a crowd of 6,400 and, with ticket prices ranging from $45-$150, grossed nearly $600,000.

After a media-driven rivalry between the two artists stirred up controversy, the two Latin music divas decided to combine their talents and hit the road on a Verses World tour. Fans who attend an Alejandra Guzman vs. Gloria Trevi show are treated to a 14-piece orchestra, four back-up singers, two trumpets and a saxophone while the music icons take turns singing a variety of their international hit songs. The legendary artists will be taking their tour to Mexico in November.

The 2017, star-studded iHeart Music Festival returned to the Strip for the seventh straight year rocking the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Sept. 22-23, providing the crowds with more than 30 performances and 15 hours of live music. The two-day concert grossed over $5.3 million, and the venue was packed with a crowd of 27,000. Fans who attended the show saw artists like Pink, The Weeknd, Harry Styles, Chris Stapleton, Coldplay and Miley Cyrus command the stage and bring their hits to the two-day event. Some artists took the opportunity to introduce some of their new music, while others bonded backstage and talked future collaborations. Concertgoers who attended the festival have been hitting social media sharing their favorite moments and listing the artists they would like to see featured at the 2018 iHeart Music Festival.
