Grammy Award-winning Latin superstar Juanes will bring his “Loud & Unplugged Tour” presented by MetroPCS and ZTE to Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 6 at 10 a.m.
With six solo albums to his credit and multi-platinum sales of over 16 million copies, Juanes is the world’s leading all-Spanish language rock artist. The multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy winner is also frequently recognized as one of the Spanish-speaking world’s leading social media voices with an online following of over 12 million fans.
Recorded during a special evening at the Frank Gehry-designed New World Symphony space in Miami, Juanes MTV Unplugged was released on May 29, 2012 and quickly debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart and in 18 countries throughout Latin America. The CD/DVD finds Juanes collaborating with Latin music legend Juan Luis Guerra, who acted as music director, and sharing duets with special guests Joaquín Sabina and Paula Fernándes. The album’s first single, “La Señal,” likewise reached #1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart, giving Juanes the 8th #1 song of his career.
Last November, Juanes MTV Unplugged won the Latin Grammy awards for Album of the Year and Best Long Form Music Video giving Juanes an impressive career total of 19 Latin Grammys – more than any other solo artist. The accolades for the album have continued as Juanes recently won this year’s Grammy for Best Latin Pop Artist and was the only Latin artist to perform on both the Grammy Award broadcast, and the MusiCares tribute to Bruce Springsteen.
Launched first across Latin America and Europe, and now on its way to the United States, Juanes’ “Loud & Unplugged Tour” has already been praised as one of the best shows of the year by multiple media outlets.
The Colombian superstar’s dedication as a global activist also extends far beyond his passionate lyrics and is seen in his wide ranging charitable work for his own Mi Sangre Foundation and as a co-founder of the “Paz sin Fronteras” (Peace Without Borders) organization which utilizes music to unite populaces regardless of political or geographic divides and advocate that all people are entitled to the basic human right of peace.
