Juanes: La Vida Concert Tour

Juanes: La Vida Concert Tour
TUCSON, ARIZONA  •  Anselmo Valencia Tori Amphitheatre  •  Ongoing

Juanes, the Columbian megastar,  is currently on the U.S. leg of his "La Vida World Tour" which includes concerts in Washington, DC , Rosemont, Illinois, Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, Las Vegas, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, El Paso, Denver Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento and San Jose, California.  Released last autumn, "La Vida… es un Ratico" tackles themes of world peace, social change and intimate personal thoughts on love and relationships. With the majority of the album recorded in his home studio in the mountains outside of Medellin, Colombia, Juanes was able to work to perfect his distinctive fusion of rock with traditional Colombian rhythms (such as Vallenato, Cumbia and Mapale), as well as other international styles including Flamenco, Troba, Bolero and Tango.

Both as guitarist and socially conscious songwriter, Juanes is now often mentioned alongside artists such as Bono and Bruce Springsteen for his belief in the possibility of social change through music. Juanes’ musical message of peace confronts the violence of his native Colombia’s continued struggle notably the dangers of landmines in both Colombia and across the world. And while conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan grab headlines, Colombia's war kills 3,500 people ---- mostly civilians ---- every year. Another 3,000 Colombians are kidnapped each year. And the conflict is seemingly endless: two Marxist rebel groups, funded by drug trafficking, extortion and kidnapping, have been battling a succession of elected governments for 40 years.
