Call it a showcase of Mexican pop music… Gloria Trevi and Reik will be performing throughout the United States this spring.
The 44-year-old Mexican pop-rock singer/songwriter, known as the “Supreme Diva of Mexican Pop,” and the Mexican pop group will headline this year’s Billboard Latin Music Series.
For the third consecutive year, Billboard will be hosting “Billboard En Concierto,” a series of concerts that feature performances by finalists to the Billboard Latin Music Awards. This year’s concert series, produced by Latin entertainment firm CMN, will feature four shows by Reik taking place April 3 at the House of Blues in Los Angeles; April 5 at New York’s Best Buy Theatre; April 7 at Houston’s Warehouse; and April 8 at the House of Blues in Dallas.
Trevi will kick off the second half of “Billboard En Concierto” April 10 at the Filmore in San Francsico and will go on to play at Chicago’s V-Live and Miami’s Filmore on April 12 and 14, respectively.
Jen Carlos Canela and XTreme launched the concert series in 2010, and the 2011 edition featured shows by chart-topping Mexican trio Camila.
Access to the “Billboard en Concierto” series is by invitation only, with fans asked to tune in to their local Telemundo station for giveaways or to participate in promotions. Fans can also visit billboardenconcierto.com to request invitations.
Both Reik and Trevi are finalists for the Billboard Latin Music Awards, which honor the most popular albums, songs and performers in Latin music, as determined by the actual sales, radio airplay and social media activity that informs Billboard’s weekly charts. The awards are the culmination of the Billboard Latin Music Conference, the largest gathering of Latin music professionals in the world, taking place April 24-26 in Miami.
