The World’s Leading Latin Rock Band has return to arenas across the country promoting the release of their eagerly-awaited new album “Cama Incendiada” (The Burning Bed). The tour began on June 10th in San Diego. On Tuesday June 23 they will be at the Allstate Arena in Chicago their only presentation in the Midwest.
Here is what the critics are saying about this tour:
“[The first single from Cama Incendiada,] ‘Mi Verdad’ is a deeply poetic love song where personal truths are juxtaposed with eternal ones. And it doesn’t matter whether or not you speak Spanish – it’s all there in the grain of the singing. While the song is an enormous hit on the Latin charts (topping several simultaneously upon release), it [also] belongs on Anglo charts in contemporary country, adult contemporary and adult alternative.
‘Mi Verdad” is one of the first truly great singles of 2015. 4.5 stars” – All Music
“[Maná is] Redefining ‘Crossover’ in Latin Pop…typical this concert was not. Entire families, grandparents included, filled the arena. ..Hardly a word of English was spoken or sung from the stage. And the band was the proud record holder of the most sold-out shows in Staples Center history… Maná, with its mix of love songs and more pointed political material about immigration and the environment, has been playing sold-out concerts across the United States for decades, selling millions of records in the process. ..Maná has a mass appeal nearly unrivaled in the Latin pop world. …From Maná’s perspective, crossing over may be an anachronism. It has simply redefined what crossover means.” – New York Times, Arts Cover Story
“No need for translation that Maná came to rock …there’s no denying that the Mexican quartet is the king of Spanish-language rock…the enthusiastic crowd cheered lustily, feting a long-running, barrier-smashing band”
– Fort Worth Star Telegram
“Maná is not just a band, it is a force …and there is no stopping their momentum” – KCAL-TV
With the perfect amount of smart visuals, special effects and storytelling, fans didn’t get just another concert — they took in a full-blown spectacle…most people remained standing until the house lights came on. I went into the night with high expectations — and Maná fulfilled them; the quartet was spot-on. – Orange County Register
