Don Omar Announces First Ever U.S. Headlining Tour
9/27/06 - LatinRapper.com news / Susan Blond Inc release

Platinum-selling Latin superstar and Machete Music recording artist Don Omar, whose phenomenally successful album King of Kings recently celebrated its 15th consecutive week at #1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, today announced his first-ever headlining tour in the United States, titled the King of Kings Tour. Just nominated for a 2006 American Music Award for “Favorite Latin Music Artist,” Don Omar released King of Kings to widespread critical acclaim on May 23, 2006 and debuted at #7 on The Billboard 200, expanding the boundaries of reggaeton music and cementing his status as one of today’s most compelling artists.

A multi-million dollar stage production by Latin Entertainment Group, Don Omar’s King of Kings Tour is set to kick off on October 13, 2006 in Atlanta, GA and will culminate with two consecutive performances in Don Omar’s native Puerto Rico on December 1-2, 2006.

Don Omar’s King of Kings Tour, a three-act debut of live music and theatrics, will bring to life the artistic and spiritual themes prevalent throughout the star’s latest ground-breaking album and shatter the boundaries of reggaeton even further, boasting an unprecedented scale of production typically associated with today’s top mainstream artists. The show’s narrative, a post-apocalyptic urban experience, will be conveyed through theatrical, gothic-inspired set-design and spectacularly choreographed scenes of dancing and swordfights performed by a cast of over a dozen performers costumed as warriors. At the center of it all will be Don Omar, performing his hits from King of Kings, including “Angelito,” “Salió El Sol,” and “Conteo,” as well as classics like “Pobre Diabla,” Reggaeton Latino,” and “Dale Don Dale.” Legendary bachata group Aventura and rising reggaeton duo Rakim y Ken-Y will join Don Omar as the opening act for select dates of the tour, bringing together three of today’s biggest stars in contemporary Latin music.

"I've always envisioned the King of Kings project as my opportunity to push beyond the limits of reggaeton and bring a new level of artistry and innovation to my music," said Don Omar. "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this vision to life now with an incredible live show for my fans across the United States."

Internationally recognized as one of the most influential and prolific forces in contemporary Latin music, Don Omar is a multi-platinum selling, award-winning artist and a pioneer in the explosive reggaeton movement. After bursting onto the scene in 2003 with his platinum-selling solo debut, The Last Don, Don Omar released his second chart-topping album, King of Kings, in 2006, establishing himself a true artist who eloquently fuses classic and contemporary styles in Latin music and consistently redefines the genre. Since the release of King of Kings, Don Omar has embarked on an international tour throughout South America, Central America, Europe and Asia, reaching out to the global audience that has propelled him to unprecedented success.
