The first U.S. leg of Romeo Santos’ critically-praised Formula Vol. 2 Tour SOLD-OUT at arenas across the country and concluded with a historic SOLD-OUT two-night solo-stand at his hometown’s iconic Yankee Stadium for 85,000+ fans. Rolling Stone hailed the production as “One Of The Hottest Tours of Summer 2014,” while the New York Times recently selected the Yankee Stadium shows as “One Of Best Concerts of 2014.
“Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall” couldn’t do it, Jay Z got help from Justin Timberlake and Eminem, and Metallica didn’t try. Selling out consecutive shows at Yankee Stadium, with its capacity of roughly 50,000, is nearly impossible for any pop music artist not named Paul McCartney. But Romeo Santos…the man who carries modern bachata on his back, held a master class here— not just in the music, which was feather-light, but also in how to keep a crowd of this size on its toes. No one — except maybe Derek Jeter — is more comfortable in this building.”– New York Times
Now, The Multi-Platinum King of Bachata Will Hold Court Once Again With These Second-Leg Arena Dates. (Look For Ticket On-Sale Details Shortly)
