Grammy Award-Winning Gipsy Kings Bring New Tour to War Memorial Auditorium on May 10 with Special Guest Doe Paoro

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Gipsy Kings, featuring Nicolas Reyes and Tonino Baliardo, bring their new tour 7:30 p.m. May 10 to the historic War Memorial Auditorium, taking audiences back to the south of France with flamenco guitars, booming Spanish vocals, longtime favorite songs and new songs from their upcoming project “Evidence.”

Tickets for The Gipsy Kings are on sale now at www.WMArocks.com, by phone at 615-782-4030, and in person at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.

Melding deep-heated flamenco, rumba, salsa and pop to the tune of 20 million albums sold, the Grammy Award-winning hit-makers behind “Bamboléo” continue to celebrate in their own, blistering tradition.

Uniting the family Reyes and the family Baliardo, the band continues a tradition that has drawn famous fans such as Picasso, Cocteau, Dali and Chaplin. From playing on the streets of Cannes and the hedonistic heights of St. Tropez, breaking world music barriers as one of the rare groups to climb the US and World music charts.

Featured in films like animated hit “Sing,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Toy Story 3” and the television show “Glee,” the band has embraced western classics by Bob Marley, the Doobie Brothers and The Eagles with globe-hopping grace, while incorporating dramatic cues from Brazilian and Caribbean culture.

Now bringing the party back to the United States in a new tour, The Gipsy Kings raise the roof with dance-ready furor, returning to their groundbreaking eponymous album and the nomadic spirit that has led them to their latest Grammy Award-winning project, “Savor Flamenco.” For more information on The Gipsy Kings, visit http://www.gipsykings.com, or follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Joining The Gipsy Kings is Sonia Kreitzer, commonly known by her stage name of Doe Paoro. Paoro describes her aesthetic as an ethereal blend of pop, soul and R&B. Signed to ANTI Records, her new single, “Guilty,” is produced by Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, Sia, Duffy) and was released earlier this year.

Performance schedule, prices, and cast are subject to change without notice. The historic War Memorial Auditorium is managed by Tennessee Performing Arts Center and supported by institutional sponsors, including Nissan North America and Coca-Cola. TPAC is funded in part by support from the Tennessee Arts Commission and the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission.

About War Memorial Auditorium

Since its dedication in 1925, War Memorial Auditorium has earned a stellar reputation with artists and audiences for its world-class acoustics; open floor and seated configurations; and charming neoclassical aesthetic. The War Memorial Auditorium, built originally to honor Tennesseans who fought and died in the First World War (1914-1918), is recognized for its distinctive architectural design. Architect Edward Dougherty achieved the American Institute of Architecture’s highest honor, the Gold Medal Award, for his work, and the building’s iconic statue, “Victory,” which stands in the center courtyard was designed by renowned American sculptor and Tennessee native, Belle Kinney. The venue has served as home to the Nashville Symphony (1925-1980) and the Grand Ole Opry (1939-1943), and it remains a premier concert venue for Nashville.

Tennessee Performing Arts Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing and supporting the presentation of the performing arts. TPAC.org is the official online source for buying tickets to TPAC events. Artists, schedules and show titles are subject to change.
