The King of Bachata was born in the Bronx in 1981. The former lead singer of the Bachata group Aventura, Santos is now a solo singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, and featured composer. Since the start of his solo career he has spawned seven number one songs on the Hot Latin Songs chart and eight number ones on the Tropical Songs chart.
Santos has performed for President Barack Obama, sold out three nights at Madison Square Garden, and sold out an entire double-header show at Yankee Stadium, giving him the prestige of being the first Latin artist to headline at the ballpark and proving that Romeo Santos tickets were hot game. His success continues to make moves for Bachata music as Santos begins to find his niche in the world of mainstream music.
Romeo Santos All Hope is Gone World Tour
In support of the groups fourth album, the All Hope is Gone tour consisted of 153 shows from 2008-2009. Although the tour consisted of festivals, Romeo Santos headlined every performance. Critics took positive note of the bands energy and on-stage presence during their sets. The band was perhaps too energetic even as turntablist Sid Wilson broke both heels after jumping from the stage and had to perform the remainder of the tour in a wheelchair.
Romeo Santos Formula, Vol. 1 Tour
The first solo tour of Santos’, the Vol. 1 tour promoted his debut studio album. Playing in the U.S., Latin America, and Europe, Santos was well received by critics who praised the production of the bachata tracks. During his Madison Square Garden shows he sold out all three nights making Romeo Santos tickets the most selling of any other artist at the venue that year.
Romeo Santos Formula, Vol. 2 Tour
With a successful first leg in 2014, Santos chose to extend his Vol, 2. Tour into 2015. The first leg of the tour was met with great Romeo Santos ticket sales in Europe, South America, and the United States and so the King of Bachata will hit more South American cities and go back through the United States. His performances are said to contain an alluring mix of sensuality, humor, and charisma.
