Latin music is a really broad term that has few shared characteristics other than the language used in the songs' lyrics. Just imagine trying to describe genres ranging from Grimes to Simon & Garfunkel by using the term "English music." Latin culture is never out of style, however. Even soccer fever is finally making its way to the U.S., thanks to a certain Argentine player. And with Dallas-Fort Worth being such a confluence of cultures, there are plenty of concerts to get you to the baile.

Already this year we've seen major Latin acts such as Karol G, Peso Pluma, Lila Downs and Paulina Rubio. But there are so many more to come. From indie rock to reggaetón, and salsa and pop icons, here are the best upcoming Latin concerts in DFW.

Tuesday, Sept. 26

Los Fabulosos Cadillacs

Texas Trust CU Theatre, 1001 Performance Place, Grand Prairie

One of Argentina’s biggest rock groups, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, will visit Texas Trust CU Theatre in Grand Prairie on Sept. 26 as part of their El León Del Ritmo tour.

Rata Blanca
Club Vivo, 1930 Pacific Ave.
Argentine heavy metal band Rata Blanca is as '90s cheeseball as it gets, and we mean that lovingly: big hair, excess amounts of leather, rebelling against nothing. The group will be playing the perfect venue, Club Vivo, where you can wear your best Argentina jersey and expect management to hook you up with empanadas. The show is 21 and up and tickets are $50 for GA, $70 for VIP.

Piso 21
The Studio at The Factory, 2713 Canton St.

The Los Muchachos tour celebrates the release of their upcoming album with the same name. Tickets for Piso 21's Dallas show start at $38.

Alejandro Sanz
Texas Trust CU Theatre, 1001 Performance Place, Grand Prairie

Alejandro Sanz, who tortured us in Spanish — in the best of ways— with his Shakira collab "La Tortura" wrote a few months ago on Twitter that he'd been struggling with his mental health. The Spanish musician, winner of four Grammy Awards and 22 Latin Grammys, deserves some love from his fans. He'll make a stop on his Oct. 7 at Texas Trust CU Theatre. Tickets start at $93.

Romeo Santos
American Airlines Center, 2500 Victory Ave.
One of the biggest names of bachata, Romeo Santos will reunite with his North Texas fans for one night on Oct. 22, at the American Airlines Center. The Latin music legend surprised the public by adding U.S. stops to his Formula, Vol. 3 — La Gira tour, and we imagine these seats will sell fast.

Don’t miss this relatively new band before they blow up and start selling out stadiums. Tickets to the Dallas show already start at $99.50.

Sunday, Oct. 29

Luis Miguel
American Airlines Center, 2500 Victory Ave.
Yet another reason to pack into American Airlines Center this fall is to see the one and only Luis Miguel on Oct. 29. Name doesn’t ring a bell? Google “Ahora, Te Puedes Marchar,” for a quick reminder — arguably the best song that came out of Latin pop in the '80s. Just as his songs don’t age, neither has Luis Miguel’s voice. Now go watch the Netflix biographical series (two seasons!) to learn about this musical star. At the age of 53, Luis Miguel still has “it,” and we can’t wait to see it. Tickets to Luis Miguel sold out within the first 30 minutes, prompting the addition of a second date in May, but resale tickets are still available.

Myke Towers

The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory, 300 W. Las Colinas Blvd., Irving

One of the most original voices in Latin rap comes from Puerto Rican artist Myke Towers, who will drop by North Texas for one night, Oct. 29, at The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Irving as part of his La Vida Es Una Tour. He’s often remembered for his feature of Jay Wheeler’s single “La Curiosidad,” which instantly became a classic nearly three years ago. Towers has worked hard to establish a name for himself since then, releasing multiple full-length albums. Tickets to Myke Towers start at $30.

Thursday, Nov. 2

Carlos Vives
Texas Trust CU Theatre, 1001 Performance Place, Grand Prairie

Have you been watching Disney’s Encanto on repeat? No, just us? Of course Carlos Vives' soundtrack song, “Colombia, Mi Encanto,” isn’t exactly his claim to fame but just one more reason why we love him. This Colombian star has been making music for 30 years now and is celebrating by going on a limited-run tour. Thankfully, he stops at Texas Trust CU Theatre in Grand Prairie for two nights on Nov. 1 and 2 (the first night is sold out). Trust us, if anyone knows how to put on a show, it's this guy. Tickets start at $52.

Thursday, Nov. 16

The Studio at The Factory, 2713 Canton St.
Venezuelan pop group Rawayana visits The Studio at the Factory in Deep Ellum on Nov. 16 for on its ¿Quién Trae Las Cornetas? Tour. Collabs like “Binikini” with Danny Ocean helped this group rise to fame, and we couldn’t be more excited that they're coming to town. Their unique genre-bending music combines salsa, reggae and funk to create a fun, trippy sound. Tickets start at $55.

Friday, Nov. 17

Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull, Ricky Martin

American Airlines Center, 2500 Victory Ave.
Three of the biggest Latin artists of all time will come together for The Trilogy Tour on Nov. 17 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. It’s not every day you can catch Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull and Ricky Martin all in one place, so don’t miss the chance to see these hitmakers live on this 19-leg arena tour, produced by Live Nation. Get your tickets early because fans are going to be lining up for a look at these legendary Latin kings. Tickets are a steal at $125.
