About El Concierto

El Concierto (English: The Concert) is the second live album by Mexican recording artist Luis Miguel, released on 17 October 1995 by WEA Latina. It was recorded from his performances at the National Auditorium in Mexico and at the Estadio Vélez in 1994 during his Segundo Romance Tour. The album features live covers of José Alfredo Jiménez's songs ("Si Nos Dejan", "Amanecí en Tus Brazos", and "El Rey"), which were previously unreleased. The first two songs were released as singles, the former reaching number one on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart and the latter peaking at number three on the same chart. Upon its release, El Concierto received generally favorable reviews from critics, who praised its production, Miguel's vocals, and his renditions of Jiménez's rancheras. The album peaked at number two on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart and both the album and video were certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. It topped the Argentine Albums Chart and the album was certified 4× platinum by CAPIF. The record also reached number two on the Chilean Albums Chart and achieved diamond status in the country and double platinum in Mexico, Platinum in Paraguay, and Uruguay. The album sold over two million copies within a year of its release. El Concierto won the Eres award for Album of the Year and received a nomination for Pop Album of the Year at the 1996 Lo Nuestro Awards.
