Top 10 Latin Music Concerts - February 2007

By

After a slow January, things are really picking up for fans of Latin music. This month there's reggaeton, salsa, lots of tejano and Latin pop and rock acts to brighten those gloomy February evenings.

1. MANA

Mexico's premier rock group, MANA, is kicking off their 'Amar Es Combatir' Tour this month. If you love 'rock en espagnol', this is an occasion not to be missed. Tour dates and cities are in the linked article.

2. Los Tigres Del Norte

When Los Tigres Del Norte recently toured in Mexico City, they performed to sold-out crowds of over 120,000 roaring fans. With a Latin Grammy for Historias Que Contar, being named the BMI Songwriting Icons for this year and a new album coming out in March, they've booked these unusual arenas to accommodate what will surely be large crowds.

Feb. 10: Atlanta, GA - Far West
Feb. 17: Brookly, NY - Bedford Armory
Feb. 18: Washington, DC - DC Armory
Feb. 25: Metairie, LA - Zephyr Field

Feb. 2: El Paso, TX - Don Haskins Center
Feb. 3: Los Angeles, CA - Gibson Amphitheatre
Feb. 4: Las Vegas, NV - Aladdin Resort & Casino

4. Concierto Del Amor

Just in time for Valentine's Day (if you're in New York), salsa's Victor Manuelle and Gilberto Santa Rosa, along with reggaeton's Don Omar will be performing for your special someone. This concert would be a much better gift than a box of chocolates!

Feb. 10: New York, NY - Madison Square Garden
Feb. 17: Miami Beach, FL - Jackie Gleason Theater

5. Los Amigos Invisibles

If you haven't heard Superpop Venezuela, then make a date to see one of these scheduled Los Amigo's concerts and see what all the fuss is about. If you have heard them, you've probably already gotten your tickets.

Feb. 15: Hollywood, CA - House of Blues Sunset
Feb. 16: Anaheim, CA - House of Blues Anaheim
Feb. 17: San Diego, CA - House of Blues San Diego

 

6. Julieta Venegas

Mexico's alt-rocker supreme, Julieta Venegas will be performing in California, singing songs from her Latin Grammy winner Limon Y Sal. Attend a concert, order some limon y sol (don't forget the tequila), sit back and enjoy the evening.

Feb. 2 - New York, NY - Radio City Music Hall

8. Valentine's Reggaeton Bash

If your valentine is more reggaeton than smaltzy romance, then maybe this is the concert for her/him. This special Valentine's concert features Rakim & Ken-y, Alexis & Fido and more.

9. Conjunto Primavera

There are two opportunities to hear the ever popular norteno sextet, Conjunto Primavera this month. Their latest album, Algo De Mi has been nominated for a Grammy this year, so why not go hear what all the acclaim is about?
