The Gipsy Kings
Tuesday, September 17 @ 7:30 pm$41.50 - $71.50
Chevalier Theatre welcomes back the Gipsy Kings, featuring Nicolas Reyes And Tonino Baliardo. Melding deep-heated flamenco, rumba, salsa and pop to the tune of 20 million albums sold, the Grammy Award-winning hit-makers behind “Bamboléo” celebrate in their very own, blistering tradition – taking audiences back to the south of France with flamenco guitars and booming Spanish vocals.
Uniting the family Reyes and the family Baliardo, the band continues a tradition that has drawn famous fans such as Picasso, Cocteau, Dali and Chaplin. From playing on the streets of Cannes and the hedonistic heights of St. Tropez, breaking world music barriers as one of the rare groups to climb the U.S. and world music charts. Featured in the likes of The Big Lebowski, Toy Story 3 and Glee, the band has embraced western classics by Bob Marley, the Doobie Brothers and The Eagles with globe-hopping grace, while also incorporating dramatic cues from Brazilian and Caribbean culture.
Tickets are $41.50 to $71.50 through the Chevalier Theatre website/Ticketmaster. Tickets also may be purchased, without any additional fees, at the Chevalier Theatre Box Office, which is open every Saturday from noon to 6 p.m., as well as two hours before every Chevalier Theatre show.
