For the fourth consecutive year, Billboard will present its annual Billboard en Concierto concert series in the lead up to the Billboard Latin Music Awards. The acclaimed-seven city, invitation only music series kicks off April 2 and will feature live performances by chart-toppers 3BallMTY and tropical superstar Tito El Bambino.
Billboard En Concierto -- a partnership with Telemundo Station Group and entertainment company Cardenas Marketing Network (CMN) -- broke ground in 2010 by being the first live concert series that featured performances by finalists from a major Latin music award show: The Billboard Latin Music Awards.
As in years past, Billboard En Concierto was designed specifically with fans in mind. There is no cost for tickets, but fans can secure access to the shows by participating in promotions held by event sponsors and by tuning in to Telemundo stations and checking local station websites.
The initial Billboard En Concierto series in 2010 featured performances by Xtreme and Jencarlos Canela, while 2011 featured Mexican pop trio Camila. In 2012, Billboard En Concierto featured performances by Mexican trio Reik and diva Gloria Trevi.
This year’s series, presented by State Farm in association with Pepsi and Net10 Wireless, kicks off with four consecutive performances by 3BallMTY, beginning April 2 in Houston (House of Blues) followed by Dallas (House of Blues), Los Angeles (House of Blues) and San Francisco (The Fillmore). Tito El Bambino will close out the series with shows in Chicago (House of Blues), Miami (The Fillmore) and culminating Wednesday, April 10 in New York (Best Buy Theatre). See below for a full schedule of the 2013 Billboard En Concierto Music Series.
By featuring finalists to the Billboard Latin Music Awards, Billboard En Concierto takes top artists directly to fans. The Billboard Latin Music Awards will air live from Miami’s BankUnited Center on the Telemundo network on April 25. They in turn are the culmination of the 24th annual Billboard Latin Music Conference, taking place April 22-25 at the JW Marriot Marquis in Miami.
