Ricardo Arjona Returns to Miami With Metamorfosis World Tour March 9
The veteran crooner and world-music virtuoso recently embarked on a North American arena tour, playing music that spans his illustrious 30-year career.
"Putting together the routing and organizing the entire production [has been the most challenging]," Spanish Broadcasting Systems senior VP of entertainment Lucas Piña recently told Billboard.
- MC Yogi Talks Rap and Yoga: "I Love 2 Live Crew, But I Make Buddhi Music"
- Bachaco Talks Miami Music Scene and Legal Weed: "Hell yeah, We Say Yes"
- Rusted Root's Michael Glabicki on Jamming, Healing, and Virginia Key Grassroots Festival
"Arjona travels with ten trucks per show. He has over 72,000 pounds of equipment and more than 4,000 square feet of stage. He has an impressive production, and that's really been the biggest challenge. To build this tour, knowing we have the entire responsibility of putting all the elements together to make it a success."
For the first time in the United States, SBS Entertainment is producing Arjona's entire tour, going "directly to the consumer" in each market to help fill arenas.
"I'm going directly to the consumer with an artist like Arjona, who hasn't toured these markets in four years. Fans were waiting for him."
But the wait is finally over. Thank God.
