It isn’t a crossover. More than maybe any other Latin pop act, Maná represents what the Top 40 charts could look like in a couple of decades, as the U.S .’s Spanish-speaking population continues to explode.
The Mexican rock band sings only en español. Unlike Shakira, Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, and lots of the other stars who’ve cracked the mainstream in the United States, Fher Olvera and crew have never felt the need to record an “English-language album.” And yet they’ve been packing American arenas to capacity for decades — even selling out seven nights at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on their last tour, and more times, 11, than any musician or band in history.
Now on the cusp of releasing their latest album, Cama Incendiada, set for April 21, Olvera, fellow founding member Juan Calleros, guitarist Sergio Vallín, and drummer Alex González have announced another soon-to-be-sold-out tour.
There will be two more record-breaking shows at the Staples Center. Three through California. Four others through Texas. And of course, one in Miami too. Maná’s Cama Incendiada 2015 U.S. Tour Dates
