’90s Pop Tour

Although the mention of ’90s pop might bring to mind Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys, the ’90s Pop Tour touching down at the Freeman Coliseum celebrates pop en español acts who ruled the charts en los noventas (hence the tour’s signature hashtag #vivelosnoventas). Uniting eight heavy hitters of varying sounds and styles, the tour packs in live sets from Grupo Jeans (pictured, aka JNS, a revolving-door girl group that climbed the charts with their 1998 hit “Enferma de Amor,” disbanded in 2008 and rebooted with a reconfigured lineup in 2015); Fey (born María Fernanda Blázquez Gil, a Monterrey native who reached international audiences with her 1996 hit “Azucar Amargo”); OV7 (formerly La Onda Vaselina, a five-piece that drew early inspiration from the 1950s vibes of Grease and topped international charts with “Mírame a los Ojos” and “Te Quiero Tanto Tanto”); Grammy-nominated Mexican singer-songwriter Aleks Syntek (who’s won over an international fan base with a musical approach that’s simultaneously polished and unplugged); Caló (Mexico’s answer to Ace of Base); party-ready Argentinean outfit The Sacados; Mexican actress and vocalist Irán Castillo; and Puerto Rican Menudo spinoff MDO. $57-$202, 8pm, Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E. Houston St., (210) 226-1177, freemancoliseum.com. — Bryan Rindfuss
