TAMPA, FL - Top-selling Latin Urban artists Wisin & Yandel are returning to the United States this summer for the second leg of their successful “La Revolución” U.S. Tour. The duo, who have sold out Madison Square Garden, Staples Center and American Airlines Arena, return by popular demand, to cities they had not been able to visit during the first leg of their tour.
“We are beyond excited to be returning to the U.S. this summer. Last time we visited major venues in 15 cities and now, because of overwhelming fan requests, we get to bring our show to additional markets,” expressed Wisin. “We feel very proud to be able to perform from coast to coast, especially in cities where major Latin tours do not usually visit,” added Yandel.
Wisin & Yandel have been hugely successful during their 11 year career as a duo. They have garnered numerous multi-platinum certifications in the United States and Latin America and dozens of prestigious awards including a Grammy and two Latin Grammys.
Wisin & Yandel’s shows are nothing short of exhilarating. The duo travels with their seven-piece band, eight dancers, and a state-of-the art audiovisual show, but the true stars are Wisin & Yandel. They deliver their unique brand of Latin urban music, a fusion of genres and styles, with unmatched power and passion.
In concert, Wisin & Yandel have proven to be a force to be reckoned with, becoming the only artists in the Urban Latin Music (Reggaeton) genre to sell out both the Staples Center and Madison Square Garden. The duo have also received international acclaim in countries where urban music had traditionally not been embraced, among them Mexico, where they have sold-out multiple shows at the most important venues in the country, including Palacio de los Deportes and Auditorio Nacional and throughout Argentina, where they recently closed a triumphant seven city tour including shows at the Estadio Argentinos Juniors (Diego Maradona) in Buenos Aires. They have been described as “a phenomenon” by a journalist who witnessed the hysteria the duo generated throughout Mexico with their “La Revolución” tour.
“After the success of the first-leg of their sold out arena tour, we realized that Wisin & Yandel’s fan base reached far beyond the top Hispanic markets. With that in mind, we wanted to bring this incredible show to the fans in those cities. We also recognize the need to present quality shows to emerging Latin markets and cultivate those fan bases” said Rebeca Leon, VP of Latin Talent for AEG Live / Goldenvoice.
