How much did Vicente Fernández charge for a concert?

Vicente Fernández was born in Huentitán El Alto, Jalisco, Mexico. In Guadalajara, he consolidated his love for ranchera music when he won a contest that led him to sing at events and restaurants. Then he joined Pepe Mendoza’s Mariachi Amanecer and Felipe Arriaga’s. Without a doubt, the salary he received at the beginning of his career was far from what he received as his fame increased and he proclaimed himself “The King.”

In 1965 Chente began visiting record companies. Through the XEX station, number 1 in Mexico, he began to build his local fame. A year later, after the death of the singer Javier Solís, the record companies called him to offer him contracts, but he signed with CBS México, now known as Sony Music, and recorded his first hits as Your way and mine Y Forgive me.

In 1976 he recorded Return Return, his debut single composed by Fernando Z. Maldonado. With this song he became an international star.
