Arjona's new Blanco y Negro Tour will begin in Seattle on April 28 and end on June 25 in Miami, according to the stop list released Wednesday, Jan. 18 by Live and Loud.
Arjona, who will turn 59 on Thursday, Jan. 19, will take his music to cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego, Boston, San Francisco, Reading, Orlando, Houston, Portland, Austin, Kansas and Minneapolis, on his tour.
"Blanco y Negro is not where he wants to be. It's where they want it. Happy to return," wrote Arjona on his social platforms along with a video that compiles the best moments of 2022.
His tour 'Blanco y Negro' refers to his last two album releases, Blanco (2020) and Negro (2021) — the latter is considered one of the most ambitious projects of his career, with recording sessions held at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London, reported Rolling Stone.
This is the first time that Arjona will perform in places like Austin, Texas, the state of Kansas, Minneapolis, Minnesota, Ontario, Canada, Portland, Oregon, and San Diego and San Francisco in California. It will also be the first time the Guatemalan singer will perform at Madison Square Garden in New York City, one of the most important venues in the U.S.
"Madison [Square Garden] is going to be one of the possibilities to be able to record this tour, to be able to keep a testimony," he told Billboard during a press event. "I think you have to approach it as naturally as possible. But if we do the Madison, if we record in the Madison, my recommendation is that they forget that I'm in the Madison."
In February 2022 Arjona, published the book Blanco y Negro, a project that addresses "his childhood, adolescence and the moments that led him to the composition."
More than a million and a half people attended Arjona's previous tour, Circo Soledad, and more than 3 million viewers for the accompanying stream — Hecho a la antigua — now the most-watched in the history of Latin American music and for which Arjona was nominated for a Grammy Award, reported EFE.
