Legendary Brazilian singer Roberto Carlos returns to the stage with a tour of the United States
After three years, Roberto Carlos – the idol of the romantic song of Latin America – is returning to the stage. The Brazilian artist chose Miami to stage the first show of his tour that will take him through 12 cities in the United States. The tour is set to begin on April 22 during the week of his birthday (April 19), a date chosen by him to celebrate his 81 years of life and of doing what he likes most – singing live to his fans.
This first date of the tour, announced by Loud And Live, Move Concerts and DC Set, will take place at the FTX Arena in Miami. Other cities scheduled for the U.S. leg are Orlando, Atlanta, Washington, Boston, Chicago, New York, Dallas, Houston, McAllen, El Paso and Los Angeles. The Brazilian singer-songwriter will visit several cities in Mexico, Europe and Brazil. Also, this year, Roberto Carlos plans to release two albums, one in Spanish and one in Portuguese.
“Even though my records are the ones that have carried my voice, my live performances are what makes me happiest in my career,” says the Brazilian singer-songwriter who has been called The King of Latin Music. “Knowing that I will be close to my beloved audience again excites me and fills me with joy. On stage I feel more alive than anywhere else.”
