Ricardo Arjona's 'Journey'
Ricardo Arjona is celebrating the release of his fourteenth Spanish-language album, which was released on April 29, 2014.
Titled "Viaje (Journey)," the aforementioned album marks the second independent release by Arjona after he left both Sony Music and Warner Music. This project was instead delivered under Arjona's own label, Metamorfosis. The first single from the album, "Apnea," was released on March 4.
To celebrate "Viaje," Arjona is taking his act to the road. The singer has a number of upcoming dates, including stops in Ecuador (August 20th and 22nd), Peru (August 27th), and appearances later on in Chile and Argentina – where he will play seven dates.
One special date booked in the fall is a performance at the Central Park Montevideo on October 1st. After venturing through Uraguay, Arjona will return to Paraguay and some neighboring provinces. And no doubt every single concert will break records. This is the man, after all, who did 34 shows in a row at Luna Park, not to mention a string of five shows at places like Stadium Boca.
Arjona's last tour was, in fact, seen by more than 1.5 million people. Don't hesitate to get your tickets to see this superstar on stage, as his appeal remains for such a broad audience. You can catch him performing everything from Latin pop to rock, Cuban music, and even a cappella performances and a mix of Tejano music and Norteno music. The man is full of surprises and is bound to continue filling venues around the world.
