Aventura Announce First U.S. Tour In 10 Years, Confirmed For Winter 2020
Latin GRAMMY-nominated bachata group Aventura are returning to the stage next winter for a much-anticipated headlining U.S. tour, their first trek across America in 10 years. The seven-day tour, running from February through March 2020, will take the Latin pop legends to major arenas throughout the nation.
The forthcoming La Gira Inmortal, translated to The Immortal Tour, is named after Aventura's most recent track, "Inmortal," the group's first new single in 10 years. Released this past April, "Inmortal" debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, while the band's greatest hits album, Lo Mejor De Aventura, was certified as the top-selling tropical album of 2019.
Most recently, Aventura reunited at a massive show headlined by lead vocalist and GRAMMY nominee Romeo Santos at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey this past September, following a string of shows in New York City in 2016.
Hailed as the Kings of Bachata, a Latin American genre rooted in the Dominican Republic, Aventura are widely considered one of the most successful Latin pop groups of all time and pioneers of the modern bachata sound. Formed in the Bronx in New York, the group is a family band comprised of Dominican-American artists Lenny, Henry, Max and Anthony "Romeo" Santos; the latter launched a successful solo career following a long stint as songwriter and lead singer for Aventura and received his first and only GRAMMY nomination as a solo artist for his 2011 debut album, Formula, Vol. 1.
After breaking into the global mainstream via their 2002 hit "Obsesión," featuring Judy Santos (no relation), Aventura has since released five studio albums. Their 2006 live album, K.O.B. Live, was nominated for a Latin GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Tropical Album. In 2009, they became the first bachata act to perform at the White House, during President Barack Obama's first term.
The general on-sale for Aventura's 2020 U.S. tour begins Thursday, Dec. 12, at 10 a.m. local time via the Live Nation website. For more information and full tour routing, visit the band's official website.
