The Gipsy Kings’ North American Tour Includes Date At River Rock Casino Resort

RICHMOND, BC (April 7, 2015)

World Music legends The Gipsy Kings will soon be getting ready to embark on their summer tour which will include a one-night performance at the River Rock Casino Resort on Thursday,  August 27, 2015.

Featuring Nicolas Reyes and Tonino Baliardo, The Gipsy Kings have spent over a quarter-century melding deep-heated flamenco, rumba, salsa and pop selling more than 20 million albums worldwide. From playing on the streets of Cannes to the hedonistic heights of St. Tropez, their music has been described as a place where “Spanish flamenco and Romani rhapsody meet salsa funk”.

Since the 1987 release of the international hit single, “Bamboléo” from their platinum-selling eponymous debut album, they have dominated the World Music charts. Their most recent studio album, Savor Flamenco was released in 2013 earning them a Grammy Award for “Best World Music Album”.

The band’s music has been featured in such motion pictures as Fearless, The Big Lebowski and Toy Story 3. Prior to their North American dates, The Gipsy Kings will be touring across Australia.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 10, 2015 at 10:00 am and are $99.50 & $89.50 (plus service charges). For more information and to purchase tickets, go to RiverRock.com.
