Romeo Santos in Concert:
Anthony “Romeo” Santos was born in the Bronx in 1981 to a Dominican father and Puerto Rican mother.
As the main singer and songwriter for Aventura, the band of brothers and friends he cofounded in 1996, Santos took bachata mainstream.
Bachata is a centuries-old Dominican folk sound characterized by the suave interplay of slinky nylon-stringed guitar and smooth percussion.
Aventura added hip-hop and R&B. The band separated in 2011 after releasing several albums and hits like the internationally beloved “Obsesión,” “Un Beso” and “Los Infieles.”
Santos returned to action only months later beginning with “You,” which he followed with a string of hits including “Promise,” “Propuesta Indecente” and “Héroe Favorito.”
His 2017 album Golden featured guest appearances by reggaeton and hip-hop stars such as Daddy Yankee, Nicky Jam and Boi-1da. After proving himself on urban turf, he returned to his roots in 2019 with Utopia, which features collaborations with bachata legends Anthony Santos, Luis Vargas, Monchy & Alexandra and — much to the surprise of nearly everyone — a reunited Aventura. Santos commands listeners’ attention through it all with his soft, sensual reflections on the deliciously painful pleasures of romance.
In 2019, Santos’ launched his Utopia Tour, following his Golden tour, a nearly three-hour excursion featuring the hits that have sold more than 100 million singles and 40 million albums throughout his 20-year career.
