Juanes will bring his highly-anticipated Loud & Unplugged Tour to Radio City Music Hall on June 22.
With six solo albums to his credit and multi-platinum sales of over 16 million copies, Juanes has been hailed as “The single most important figure of the past decade in Latin music” (Los Angeles Times). The Double GRAMMY & 19-Time 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 10 Million fans. 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.
Recorded during a special evening at the 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 album’s first single “La Señal” likewise reached #1 on the “Hot Latin Songs” chart, giving Juanes the 8th #1 song of his career. Most recently, “JUANES MTV Unplugged” WON this year’s LATIN GRAMMY awards for ALBUM OF THE YEAR & BEST LONG FORM MUSIC VIDEO – giving Juanes an impressive career total of 19 LATIN GRAMMYS, more than any other solo artist. Now, with the MTV Unplugged bringing Juanes another GRAMMY award as well, the appreciative musician is returning to the road to share this music directly with fans. The recently launched “Loud & Unplugged Tour” has already been praised as: “a brilliant and emotional unplugged performance that brought together 23 songs and more than two hours of dancing and celebration. …one of the best shows of the year”(Terra).
