Tickets on-sale Friday at 10am!
Having just sold-out Madison Square Garden, Latin Music Superstar Romeo Santos announced a national tour for 2012 today. The tour will include a stop at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, March 25. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10am. As the principal composer & lead vocalist of Aventura, Romeo Santos fronted one of last spring’s most successful tours, ranking alongside artists such as Bon Jovi and Lady Gaga. Now, the Multi-Platinum King Of Bachata returns to stages across the country to celebrate the chart-topping success of his first solo album Formula Vol. 1. “Crossing Over, No Translation Needed … Suave, sweet-voiced singer Romeo is a major star and heartthrob… one of the most prominent Latin singers in the country.”- New York Times This week finds Romeo Santos holding both the #1 Latin Album & #1 Latin Single in the country, Formula Vol. 1 will hold #1 on “Top Latin Albums” for a fifth consecutive week, while current single “Promise” returns to #1 on the “Hot Latin Songs” chart for a seventh week. As the principal composer and vocalist of revolutionary New York bachata group Aventura, ROMEO SANTOS became the leading musical voice of young U.S. Hispanics-fronting the top-selling Latin album of 2009 & 2010 and filling arena concerts across the country – including a record-setting sold-out run at Madison Square Garden that sold more tickets than Lady Gaga and Madonna. With the November 8 release of his highly anticipated solo debut album “Formula Vol. 1”, Romeo Santos fused a strong base of bachata with further elements of Urban, Pop and Latin music to create a representative new sound for our evolving bicultural and bilingual world. Featuring collaborations with special guests such as LIL WAYNE, USHER, PITBULL, MARIO DOMM of CAMILLA, MALA RODRIGUEZ, TOMATITO, ANTHONY SANTOS & More, Formula Vol.1 has already produced two back-to-back #1 singles, and a #1 album debut with Latin Music’s strongest first week sales in over four years. Formula Vol. 1 has now held the #1 position on Billboard’s “Top Latin Albums” chart for five consecutive weeks and has already reached double-platinum sales in the U.S. Hispanic market. “Romeo Santos — who fronted the world’s most popular Latin band — is a ladykiller with an unearthly falsetto… His solo debut blends Dominican bachata and R&B …with suave results.” – Rolling Stone “ROMEO SANTOS: BACHATA GOES BIG-TIME … With A Will Smith-Produced ABC Sitcom, And A Solo Debut Album That Already Features Two #1’s, Romeo Santos Arrives With The New Heft Of The Latin Demo– But Aims To Reach Everyone. [Formula Vol. 1 is] an album chock full of hits” – Billboard “Formula Vol. 1 may redefine crossover: This summer, Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” dominated Latin radio airplay — until bachata singer Romeo Santos dropped “You,” an infectious, heartfelt ballad that quickly crushed everything else in rotation. With the release of his debut solo album, “Formula Vol. 1,” Santos seems poised to save an even broader swatch of listeners from mediocre radio tunes. … Part of the reason for the album’s success is that Santos doesn’t sell out bachata die-hards. [On] “Promise,” a duet with Usher, the singer manages to team up with a pop star without “going pop…The tortured love songs Santos writes and composes, including are impossible to resist, whether one understands all of the lyrics or not.” - Washington Post “Romeo Santos can stop traffic. Literally! Crossing the stretch of Broadway in front of the record store where the star made an appearance on Sunday was next to impossible for several hours. Thousands of fans packed in for three blocks. Some had camped overnight. …A week after release, the singer’s debut solo album, “Formula, Vol. 1” is already No. 1. “Promise,” the record’s first single, a bilingual duet with Usher, was the No. 1 Latin track even before their charming live performance at the Latin Grammys. Santos’ star is clearly on the rise.” –New York Daily News “Like Prince, Romeo Santos’ speaking voice is a surprising departure from his singing one. …on his debut solo album, he croons in an impossibly high falsetto Spanish, laced with pathos, desire, and youthful slang. …Romantic bachata songs sway and swirl to tropical Latin rhythms as a syncopated guitar chord sets a relaxed tempo. It’s an ambitious album that speaks to the Latino experience and should resonate with listeners negotiating multiple cultures the world over.” – iTunes www.romeosantosofficial.com - www.facebook.com/RomeoSantosOfficial www.twitter.com/#!/RomeoSantosPage – http://www.youtube.com/romeosantosvevo Tickets, starting at $59.50 (plus applicable service fees), are on sale now at the Hard Rock Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000.
