Vicente Fernandez Adds Latin Spice To Newark
The King of Ranchera Music Makes Inaugural Visit to Prudential Center
Newark, NJ - To keep the heat rolling from summer into fall, Prudential Center is adding more Latin taste to their concert lineup. Vicente Fernandez brings his world renound Mexican Ranchera sound to Brick City on Sunday, September 30, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. The ''La Gira Del Adios Vicente Fernandez'' tour will feature Fernandez as well as his son, Vicente Fernandez, Jr. This will be the artist's last tour, as he is retiring from performing live after these shows. This concert will mark Fernandez's first time singing at Prudential Center.
Vicente Fernandez brings his trademark cowboy suit, hat and impeccable wide mariachi accompaniment to entertain fans around the world. This Grammy award winning artist has drawn comparisons to the legendary Frank Sinatra, with a career spanning over five decades. Fernandez has recorded over 100 albums and is an influential figure, ultimately responsible for shaping the growth and development of the genre of modern country music. His music, his songs and his voice on hundreds of recordings, ensure that Fernandez will endure as a constant source of Mexican pride, admiration and inspiration for people worldwide.
Latin music is growing in importance at the Rock. Last year, Prudential Center hosted six successful Latin shows, featuring stars like Mana, Ricky Martin, Luis Miguel and Pitbull. Many more well-known Latin performers are playing the Rock this year, including Roberto Carlos, Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez and Wisin Y Yandel.
