Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
With two hit albums under their best, Latin American five-piece CNCO arrive in the UK for a headline appearance at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Sunday 24 March 2019.
The band rose to fame on the first series of La Banda, ultimately winning a recording contract with Sony Music Latin, and dropping their debut studio album Primera Cita in 2016.
The record propelled to No.1 on the stateside Latin chart, becoming the best-selling Latin debut of the year. It also hit the top spot in Bolivia, Ecuador and Guatemala.
Their self-titled sophomore album followed last year, including hit singles Mamita and Sólo Yo.
Most recently, they unveiled their Latin-English crossover single Pretend which once again broke into the top 40 on the Billboard Latin Chart, and currently celebrates over 30 million views on YouTube.
CNCO, comprising Joel Pimentel, Richard Camacho, Erick Brian Colón, Christopher Vélez, and Zabdiel De Jesús, are now set to take to London for a headline performance at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. The date continues their huge world tour celebrating the release of their second record.
Ahead of the show, check out some of CNCO’s favourite tracks to listen to on the road in their Tour Bus Playlist below:
Tommy Boysen – Hookah & Sheridan
“We cannot stop listening to this song. It is so good, the melody, production, and lyrics. It’s one of our favorites to vibe to when traveling, on tour, in free time… we love it! We hope to collaborate with him one day. Maybe even a remix of this song!”
Ed Sheeran – Happier
“We’ve looked up to Ed Sheeran for so many years. His artistry and music inspire us and fuel our passion for this industry. He makes great songs that make you feel happy and in love. He’s also able to make you feel pain and heartbreak, but in a beautiful way. This song is a great example of that.”
30 Seconds To Mars – The Kill
“We’ve always loved rock music and Jared Leto is someone we’ve always looked up to. His style and vibe are just so cool! 30 Seconds to Mars is always on our travel playlists because it makes us think of friends from back home when we used to skate board through the town listening to their songs.”
Sam Smith – Too Good At Good Byes
“Sam Smith is one of our go to artist while on the road. His voice and melodies and songs help transcend into another world. We get so inspired to write songs when listening to Sam Smith and that’s something we do a lot on the road.”
