Maná is ready to rock Las Vegas…
The multiple Grammy– and Latin Grammy-winning Mexican rock group—consisting of vocalist/guitarist Fher Olvera, drummer Alex González, guitarist Sergio Vallín and bassist Juan Calleros—will perform at next year’s Rock in Rio USA event.
The Latin music superstars, considered the biggest Latin rock band in the world, are the first Spanish-language artists to be announced for the first U.S. edition of the massive festival, to take place in Las Vegas over two weekends in May 2015.
“Maná is the perfect example of the strength of the Hispanic community in the United States and how culturally diverse the country is,” Rock in Rio founder Roberto Medina said in a release announcing the band’s inclusion in the lineup.
Maná is set to play on the festival main stage during Rock Weekend (May 8-9) joining No Doubt, Metallica, Linkin Park and Rise Against. Deftones, Sepultura and Coheed & Cambria have been announced for the City of Rock Sunset stage that weekend.
Taylor Swift, John Legend and Joss Stone are the headliners revealed so far for the following Pop Weekend.
Brazilian artists Leo Gandelman, Bossacucanova and Spokfrevo have been announced for the festival’s Rock Street Brazil, which will be animated by “charismatic characters of Brazilian culture,” according to the festival website. A Rock Street USA and Rock Street UK are also planned.
Maná, the world’s biggest-selling Latin rock band, played Rock in Rio Madrid in 2012.
