Latin rock superstar Juanes returns to the Hollywood Bowl on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 for a musical journey through his greatest hits, latest chart-topping album Mis Planes Son Amarte, and summer single “Pa Dentro.” Continuing his ongoing practice to spotlight important new artists in Latin music, Juanes has extended an invitation to Spain’s fast-rising music and cultural innovator Rosalía for her Los Angeles concert debut with the September 5th opening performance slot at the Hollywood Bowl. The invitation extends Juanes’ support of Rosalía after she also joined the Colombian star at his December 2017 concert in Madrid.
The Barcelona-born singer is known for her inventive weaving of flamenco, hip-hop, and pop sounds, which has led to millions of audio and video streams, praise from NPR, The New York Times, Pitchfork, Vogue, Billboard, Stereogum, and more, as well as a 2017 Latin Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.
The concert pairing will unite two revolutionary Latin fusion artists who have released some of this year’s most groundbreaking Latin music-video imagery. Juanes’ “Pa Dentro” champions inclusiveness and empowerment for women in the arts, while Rosalía’s videos for “Malamente” and “Pienso en Tu Mirá” have been included in “best music video” lists by multiple press outlets – with Stereogum calling “Malamente” a “ravishing piece of filmmaking.” “Malamente” earned over one million views on YouTube in its first 48 hours of release, and became the No. 1 viral music video in Spain, earning praise from Pitchfork: “Rosalía’s voice is liquid velvet, unfurling a story in every sigh.” “Pienso en Tu Mirá,” released last month, received “best new music” picks from The New York Times, NPR, The Guardian, and more, with NPR describing the song as “an old-world lament of love…for a new world of young women breaking out.”
Rosalía’s “Malamente” and “Pienso en Tu Mirá” are the first two advance singles from her highly anticipated fall album, El Mal Querer, which she will present for the first time live in the United States at this concert performance.
Rosalía also recently announced her feature film debut, as she will appear in Pedro Almodóvar’s upcoming Dolor y Gloria alongside Penélope Cruz.
