Marc Anthony, Juan Luis Guerra to tour Lain America
Marc Anthony has scored his record-extending 25th chart topper … for a song that's not even his. Anthony lends his voice to the track "Cuando Nos Volvamos" by Colombian Star Carlos Vives. The song made it the No. 1 spot on Tropical Airplay the last week of July. It climbed three percent in airplay spins at the format, according to Nielsen. And speaking of epic Latin combinations, there's some exciting news in the works regarding Anthony's upcoming tour.
It's official now that Anthony and Juan Luis Guerra will share a stage for a gig around Latin America in a six-day tour they're calling "Gigante2 2014." The trek starts October 15th in Lima, Peru and will undoubtedly feature such hits as "Vivir Me Vida" and "Bachata Rosa." The tour will stop in Ecuador, Chile, Argentina and Costa Rica before it ends.
"We are truly honored to have the opportunity to present these two stars of our music in the 2014 edition," said Henry Cardenas, Marc Anthony's representative. "This concept has been successful because of our fans."
Guerra has sold more than 20 million albums and has won a multitude of awards, including 15 Latin Grammys and three Grammy Awards.
Meanwhile, Anthony has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide, and has earned several Gold and Platinum album certifications, and is the recipient of several Grammy, Latin Grammy and at least 24 Lo Nuestro Awards.
Though no North American dates have been announced, fans are obviously hoping the "Gigante2 2014" tour will move stateside at some point. If it does, SeatGeek will be the first to let you know!
Marc Anthony debuts "3.0" (Updated September 6, 2013)
Imagine having an idea for something in your head…then thinking, re-thinking and (in some cases) over-thinking the process. It's what Marc Anthony was faced with when he walked into the studio to record his first salsa album in 10 years. The end result, however, was an enthusiastic, high-energy mix of songs showcased on "3.0."
Of course Anthony didn't tackle his latest project alone. He teamed up again with super producer Sergio George, after previous collaborations from the duo included 1993's "Otra Nota" and 1995's "Todo A Su Tiempo." The two also spawned hits like "Hasta Que Te Conoci," "Te Conozco Bien" and "Se Me Sigue Olvidando." And they've certainly brought their magic to this new disc, with the potential for chart-toppers high thanks to cuts like "Volver A Comenzar" and "Espera."
The first single off Anthony's new album, "Vivir Mi Vida,"was released on April 26, 2013 and became the longest-running No. 1 salsa song for 14 consecutive weeks on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart. It also spawned the official world tour for the album, which will visit three continents and 15 countries. The 12-city U.S. trek kicked off Friday, August 23 at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Fla., and after it's done Anthony will head to Latin America and stop in places like Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador. The tour will finally wrap in Australia.
Cleary reigning as the undisputed King of Salsa, Anthony continues to be a one-man tour de force who has cemented his stature as one of the greatest performers on stage today. Be sure to get your tickets to see him before December 18!
Marc Anthony - Top Selling Tropical Salsa Artist of All Time
He is a singer, songwriter, actor and producer who ranks as the top-selling tropical salsa artist of all time. Yet Marc Anthony's career achievements have often been overshadowed by his former marriage to superstar and fellow Puerto Rican musician Jennifer Lopez.
Anthony (born Marco Antonio Muñiz) was discovered as a teen and began his career as a session vocalist and house act for Underground New York. After a composition for school friend Sa-Fire became a Top 40 hip-hop hit, he sang background vocals on her debut album. He then went on to work with the Latin Rascals and Menudo.
Anthony's debut album, "When the Night is Over," bowed in 1991 as a mix of Latin hip-hop. The sophomore effort, "Otra Nota," was said to be a better representation of Anthony's salsa roots. He didn't move for an English-language album release until a self-titled project in 1999. The single "I Need to Know" reached the Top Ten of the main Billboard album chart, peaking at number three.
Thus far, Anthony's profile has mostly been raised by his Spanish-language albums and crossover into acting. He had supporting roles in films like "Hackers," "Big Night" and "The Substitute" in the late 90's, and in 2004 shared a leading role opposite Denzel Washington in "Man on Fire." Anthony also starred in "El Cantante," a biographical drama about the life of salsa music legend Hector Lavoe that received strong reviews.
Anthony is currently working with ex-wife Lopez and director-choreographer Jamie King on a Latin talent series created by Simon Fuller, called "Q'Viva! The Chosen." It follows Lopez and Anthony as they travel across 21 countries to find new talent.
