Romeo Santos is making history again as he announces new concert venue

  Romeo Santos continues to prove that he is the King of Bachata, as he makes history becoming the first Latin music artist to headline the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

  Such milestone made Santos the first Latino to have sold out two consecutive shows in the home stadium of the New York Yankees and the second Latin music artist to perform in the venue.

  The album “Utopia” is essentially a love letter to the new and traditional sounds of bachata that catapulted Santos into stardom during his time as the front man of the acclaimed Dominican group Aventura.

  Santos’ 2018 “Golden Tour” became one of the highest grossing concerts of that year, crowning the singer as the No. 1 selling Latin artist in the nation, according to Pollstar’s top 200 North American tours.

  “The success of The Golden Tour solidifies Romeo Santos as one of the most in-demand Latin acts, and that continues with his history-making show at the MetLife Stadium,” said Hans Schafer, head of Live Nation Latin.
