Romeo Santos is preparing for a double-header at Yankee Stadium…
The 32-year-old Dominican American singer, one of Latin music’s fastest rising superstars, has announced an additional Yankee Stadium concert date for July 11, after selling out his original July 12th date in 48 hours, according to his reps.
No Latin artist has headlined the stadium since Tropical ensemble Fania All Stars performed and recorded Live At Yankee Stadium in 1973.
Santos will be the first Latino to do so in over 40 years and the first to ever top the bill at the Yankees’ new field, following its relocation in 2009.
The additional Bronx date follows a string of recently revealed US shows for his Formula Vol. 2 Tour.
Santos’ latest album Formula, Vol. 2 debuted at No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart on March 15, and at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. It scored the best sales week of any Latin title in eight years, moving 85,000 copies in its opening week according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Santos’ single “Odio” featuring Drake is in its eighth consecutive week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.
Tickets for the July 11th Yankee Stadium show will go on sale to the public on Thursday, April 3.
