The Gipsy Kings celebrate 25 years with Jupiters Theatre performance
Jupiters Hotel & Casino is delighted to be celebrating The Gipsy Kings’ 25th anniversary tour with a performance at Jupiters Theatre, Gold Coast on Sunday April 5, 2015.
The Gipsy Kings will raise the roof of Jupiters Theatre with the dance-ready sound that has sold 25 million albums in their third ever tour of Australia.
Melding deep-heated flamenco, rumba, salsa and pop, the Grammy Award-winning hit-makers celebrate their 25th anniversary by taking audiences back to the south of France, returning to their ground-breaking eponymous album and the nomadic spirit that has led them to their ninth studio album, Savor Flamenco.
The world music superstars are remembered for hits such as ‘Djobi Djoba’, ‘Baila Me’, ‘Bamboléo’, ‘Bem Bem Maria’, ‘Volare’, ‘Tu Quieres Volver’, ‘A Mi Manera (Comme D’Habitude)’, ‘Vamos A Bailar’ and many more. Returning to Australia after five years, the highest selling artists in French music history are still at the top of their game.
The group’s unchanging roster consists of two bands of brothers — the Reyes and the Baliardos. Lead vocalist Nicolas Reyes and lead guitarist Tonino Baliardo continue to lead The Gipsy Kings as they have from the beginning – with their exciting music which fans have described on their recent US tour as their best ever.
From playing on the streets of Cannes and the hedonistic heights of St. Tropez, The Gipsy Kings have broken world music barriers as one of the rare groups to top the US mainstream and world music charts – as well as the Australian charts.
Their music has featured on movie soundtracks including The Big Lebowski, Toy Story 3 and Glee, with the band has embracing western classics by Bob Marley, the Doobie Brothers and The Eagles with globe-hopping grace, while incorporating dramatic cues from Brazilian and Caribbean culture.
