Romeo Santos Takes Madison Square Garden

Former Aventura frontman plays 3-nights at MSG



    Romeo Santos has sold out two of his three night stint at the Garden. Pretty incredible for a 31-year-old who, perhaps, you’ve never heard of.

    The name might not ring a bell, but Aventura, the biggest Bachata group ever, definitely should.

    Santos once fronted the mega band -- beloved for their romantic Latin songs infused with a tropical merge of R&B-dance, guitars and percussion -- and had a key role in popularizing the bilingual band, which reached the top of the charts in Latin America, the U.S, and Europe.

    The Bronx native, with soft vocals, who began his musical career writing songs at 13, released his solo album last year titled Formula.

    The 15-track album features collaborations with the Spanish hip-hop singer Mala Rodriguez, Usher on “Promise” and “All Aboard” with Lil Wayne.

    8 p.m., at Madison Square Garden, Feb 11, 23-24.
