Salsa star Gilberto Santa Rosa is the latest Latin artist to announce live fall dates after the pandemic-forced hiatus.
Santa Rosa’s Camínalo (Walk It) tour, will hit more than 16 U.S. cities, beginning with Lubbock, Texas on Oct. 7.
Santa Rosa, who is known as the “Gentleman” of salsa both for his velvety voice as for his proper demeanor and outstanding soneo–or improvisatory—skills, will perform a mix of mostly theaters and casinos in a wide variety of markets.
The Camínalo tour will make stops at The Conga Room in Los Angeles and the San José Center for the Performing Arts in San José, and also at the Theater at MGM National Harbor and the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City.
Santa Rosa will also play the James L Knight Center in Miami and the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando, a big Puerto Rican enclave.
Camínalo will “be a big party, full of music and good vibes,” said Santa Rosa. The tour is named after one of the songs in his new album, Colegas.
The tour is produced by promotion, entertainment and marketing company Loud & Live which has announced half a dozen tours in the past month, including those of Camilo, Carlos Vives and Juan Luis Guerra. Loud and Live also produce Colombian Silvestre Dangond’s successful multi-weekend run at the Fillmore Miami Beach.
“It’s a pleasure to work with a great artist and legend of our Latin community,” said Loud and Live CEO Nelson Albareda.
Tickets to Camínalo go on sale June 18 at 10 a.m.
