Juanes Loud & Unplugged Tour

Juanes Loud & Unplugged Tour

Juanes will bring his critically-praised Loud & Unplugged Tour to Tampa this summer. In November of 2012, the Colombian rock superstar won the Album of the Year trophy for Juanes MTV Unplugged at the 13th Annual Latin Grammy® Awards. This was the third time Juanes won Album of the Year at the Latin Grammys. 

Having sold more than 15 million albums worldwide, the nineteen-time Latin Grammy Award-winning Juanes has been heralded as “the single most important figure of the past decade in Latin music” by The Los Angeles Times and as “Latin America's hottest singer-songwriter … a soulful poet with electric guitar” by The New York Times. In 2005, TIME named him “One of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.” Read more under About the Show. For the official website, visit juanes.net.

About the Show

Born in Medellin, Colombia, on Aug. 9, 1972, Juanes was caught in the nets of music from an early age, influenced by found sounds from suburban music and tangos of Carlos Gardel, to Soda Stereo, Led Zeppelin, Silvio Rodríguez and Jimi Hendrix. For eight years he was a singer, guitarist and principal songwriter of the rock band Ekhymosis (1987-1999), having produced five albums.

Recently named one of the 100 most influential people by Time magazine, Juanes has devoted much time to his work as a whole, and in this respect his work goes far beyond the passionate lyrics of their songs. This can be determined by finding the many philanthropic causes he supports continuously. Thus, the work of his own foundation My Blood (Mi Sangre) has been recognized internationally as one of the most active against the use of landmines, both in Colombia and in the rest of the world.

Inaddition to this work for the eradication of deadly war devices, the Mi Sangre Foundation provides care and rehabilitation for people injured by landmines around Colombia. Juanes' crusade in favor of these victims led him to be the first artist to play a concert in the main hall of the parliament of the European Union, an event that brought a donation of two and a half million Euros.

The Foundation also organized a very successful Colombia-without-landmines charity concert in Los Angeles, helping to raise funds for the creation of the Peace Park in Medellin, with games specially adapted for individuals with disabilities. By expanding in this way their mission, the Mi Sangre Foundation currently works in the area of early childhood development throughout Latin America.
