Latin rock band Maná will bring its Latino Power tour to the Save Mart Center – just in time for November’s election.
The tour, which stops Sept. 20 in Fresno, is a new arena production that combines the band’s career hits with songs from last year’s Latin Grammy-winning album “Cama Incendiada.” It also unites fans with organizations such as Voto Latino.
The band wants to inspire its fans to have their voices count in November.
“We have baptized our new tour Latino Power because with the strength of their collective vote this year, U.S. Latinos can further empower our community – demanding more respect and affecting real change in the living conditions and opportunities for our people,” says singer Fher Olver in a release announcing the tour.
Tickets for the Fresno date cost $45-$175 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 19, at select Save Mart supermarkets, online at http://www.ticketmaster.com/, by phone at 800-745-3000 or at the Save Mart Center box office. Presale tickets will be available via the Live Nation mobile app starting at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 18.
Formed in 1986 in Guadalajara, Mexico, Maná is one of the most listened to Latin bands in the world. The band has had eight No. 1 entries on Billboard’s Latin Albums chart. It has had received an equal number of Latin Grammy awards.
The band has also set records for its touring show. It sold 12 million tickets on a single tour and played seven consecutive sold-out nights at the Los Angeles Staples Center. Last year, the band appeared at the Rock in Rio festival, putting it among headliners such as Metallica, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars. In October, Maná was No. 9 on Pollstar’s list of top 20 U.S. concerts, averaging $1,170,856 per show.
Maná last played the Save Mart Center in June.
