RUBÉN BLADES AND GILBERTO SANTA ROSA: TOGETHER ON TOUR FOR THE FIRST TIME!
Rubén Blades and Gilberto Santa Rosa, "El Poeta y el Caballero de la Salsa" respectively, have announced they will go on tour together in the United States at the beginning of 2011, in a show aptly titled "Una Sola Salsa", in which they will sing their greatest hits.
The tour will take these Two Salsa Superstars all over North America, to cities like New York, Miami, Houston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Juan. According to Blades its an "unusual opportunity to share a stage with a musician who is beloved by everyone and is also a dear, personal friend [Gilberto Santa Rosa]". Both artists agree that this is an "opportunity to continue promoting the concept of Salsa music and ensuring that it wont be forgotten, pushed aside or replaced by other genres."
At this point the show is in its pre-production stage, which includes booking dates and setting up photo shoots with the stars. "We have high expectations for "Una Sola Salsa" since its a high wattage show with these two mega-stars weve always dreamt of seeing on-stage together."
This year Blades and Santa Rosa performed a duet together titled "Me Cambiaron las Preguntas", which appears in Santa Rosas new album, titled "Irrepetible". The song marks a highlight for Gilberto in his music career, since its the first song he records which focuses mainly on a social issue. According to Gilberto himself, its "unrepeatable because when you try to repeat a formula, it never turns out like you expected it to."
Blades stated that the tour will be an "opportunity to thank the fans that never abandoned the genre for their support and creating a reason to physically reunite in celebration of this type of music." He added that it would be a great time to "present the style to a new generation who hasnt been exposed to Salsa music and that will surely become great supporters of this Caribbean expression."
