After a five-year US touring hiatus, veteran Brazilian singer-songwriter Roberto Carlos has sold out the first show of his new world tour, on Saturday at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
Carlos (pictured), known as the ‘King of Latin music’, has sold more than 12,000 tickets for the 9 March concert, according to promoters Move Concerts and Loud and Live.
The tour will feature music from his first album in Spanish in 25 years, Amor Sin Límite, and also visit other US cities, including Orlando, New York, Boston, Washington DC and Houston, before heading to Argentina and Europe.
Roberto Carlos has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, and was recently awarded the Premio Excelencia at the prestigious Premios Lo Nuestro Awards.
