Rosalía announces first world tour in Europe and the US
The 15 country-run will begin in the Spanish city of Almería on July 6 and end in Paris on December 18
Spanish singer Rosalía announced her first world tour on Monday. Motomami World Tour will kick off in the southern Spanish city of Almería on July 6 and continue across Spain before moving to Europe, Latin America and the United States. The Catalan pop sensation will perform a total of 46 concerts in 15 different countries. Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 22 at 10am (according to the local time of each city) and can be purchased from Rosalía’s website.
Excitement over the tour has been building since the dates of several shows were leaked, apparently by mistake. Rosalía will perform three concerts in Mexico: Mexico City (August 14), Guadalajara (August 17) and Monterrey (August 19). And she will also visit Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Canada. In the United States, the pop sensation will perform in a dozen cities, including Boston, Washington, San Francisco and Atlanta; with a double recital scheduled at the Radio City Music Hall in New York and the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles.
In the last months of the year, Rosalía will return to Europe, where she will tour Portugal, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom, before her final concert in Paris on December 18.
The tour confirms Rosalía’s status as an intentional star, with the singer hoping to sell out venues such as the National Auditorium of Mexico and the Movistar Arena in Bogotá, which have capacity for more than 10,000 spectators.
And expectations for the tour are running high. Rosalía’s latest album Motomami has been overwhelmingly positively received, with critics and fans alike praising it for its eclectic mix of reggaeton, flamenco and jazz.
Since its release on March 18, Motomami has topped the charts of streaming platforms such as Spotify, while music magazines have given it one of the highest average scores of the decade.
