Ricardo Arjona to Launch 25-City North American “Blanco y Negro” Tour

Ricardo Arjona is ready to hit the road…

Mere months after his Hecho a la Antigua” livestream concert from the historic city of Antigua in his native Guatemala, and with 30-plus musicians and more than 5,000 candles, the 57-year-old Guatemalan singer-songwriter has announced his return to touring.

Named after his recent album Blanco y Negro, recorded at the emblematic Abbey Road studios in London, Arjona will kick off his 25-date North America tour on March 24 at the Kiva Auditorium in Albuquerque.

He will then make pit stops Texas, California, Florida, and New York, to name a few.

Arjona will wrap up his tour, presented by Loud and Live, on June 11 at the emblematic Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan.

“Although the term ‘legendary’ is often overused in our business, it is definitely appropriate when describing Ricardo Arjona,” Nelson Albareda, CEO and founder of Loud and Live, said in a statement. “From his iconic lyrics to his distinctive voice, this true Renaissance man has transcended the borders of his native Guatemala to become a universal music icon. We are beyond proud to be spotlighting his talents in the Blanco y Negro tour next year across the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada.”

Tickets for Blanco y Negro tour go on sale on October 8, 2021, via ricardoarjona.com.

Ricardo Arjona to Livestream Concert, Titled “Hecho a la Antigua,” from His Native Guatemala

Ricardo Arjona is ready to illuminate your world…

The 57-year-old Guatemalan singer-songwriter will livestream a single concert from the historic city of Antigua, in his native Guatemala.

Hecho a la Antigua,” a play on words that translates to “Made the Old Fashioned Way,” will livestream at 9:00 pm on April 10.

Tickets to the show go on sale on Wednesday, March 10.

Known for tours that feature stunning staging and visuals, Arjona is looking to push the envelope with “Hecho a la Antigua.” Beyond the exquisite locale — Antigua is famously beautiful — the actual concert will stream from the circular patio of the 18th century church and convent of Las Capuchinas, with special care taken to work with the natural acoustics of the monument.

More than 30 musicians will be flown in for the performance, and, most impressive of all, the show’s lighting will be provided entirely by more than 5,000 candles. According to Arjona’s team, there will be no artificial lighting used at all.

Tickets will be priced at $15, and those who purchase their tickets the first week of on-sale will also be able to partake in a conversation with Arjona following the concert.

Arjona, who’s been releasing his music independently on his own label, Metamorfosis, for the past few years (distributed by The Orchard) has also built a loyal online following and regularly releases music and premium content exclusively to subscribing fans on his website. That strategy may translate very successfully to strong ticket sales for his first-ever livestream.

Arjona regularly fills arenas in the United States, but his top touring markets are Argentina and Mexico, both places where live shows have been shuttered since the beginning of the pandemic.

“Hecho a la Antigua” is being produced by Fenix Entertainment Group in partnership with Metamorfosis. The concert will stream for a single time on hechoalaantigua.com.
