Romeo Santos at the American Airlines Arena March 1
Over the past 17 years, Romeo Santos and bachata boy band Aventura have won the overflowing adoration of prepubescent girls, their mothers, and 35-year-old guys in white pants who love to dance. In the process, Santos and sidekicks scored a surplus of American Music Awards, Premio Lo Nuestro statues, and Billboard Latin Music trophies; dominated the Latin charts like Menudo on steroids; and raked in $12.1 million in 2010 tour revenue.
Right now, though, Aventura is taking some time off. Perhaps permanently. So the band's leading Latin lover is bringing his debut solo slab, Formula Vol. 1, and surging, Usher-approved single "Promise" to arenas across America, from NYC to Atlanta, Chi-Town, Dallas, L.A., and Vegas.
This Thursday, the Formula finally arrives in Miami. And if you listen really, really, really closely, you can already hear 20,000 prepubescent girls, their mothers, and a bunch of 35-year-old guys in white pants who love to dance screaming, "¡Romeo, llévame contigo!"
