Gipsy Kings hit The Star for Blues on Broadbeach

The Star Gold Coast will host an exclusive concert presenting salsa-pop-flamenco superstars Gipsy Kings by André Reyes for Blues on Broadbeach this May.

After first capturing the world’s imagination in 1987 with the release of their self-titled album ‘Gipsy Kings’ and songs ‘Bamboleo’ and ‘Djobi Djoba’, the group have sold close to 20 million albums and toured extensively worldwide. Playing at festivals, events and venues in all corners of the globe, Gipsy Kings have become a live phenomenon, known for their energetic sets featuring infectious Latin rhythms and virtuoso guitar playing.

Their addition to the lineup at Blues on Broadbeach will see the famously free event host this exclusive ticketed performance by the international superstars for one night only. And it’s a likely sellout.

Their music is a heady concoction of rumba, flamenco and salsa, described as ‘a crossroads where gypsy rhapsody and flamenco meets salsa funk’. As a result, their live shows are loved by fans of Latin, world and contemporary pop music – and just about anybody who enjoys dancing.

Today, Gipsy Kings are fronted by the incredible André Reyes. Son of celebrated flamenco artist Jose Reyes, André delights audiences with his impressive guitar playing and stunning vocals.

Including the entertainment at The Star, the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival will this year present 70 incredible national and international acts performing across 20 different stages in
stunning Broadbeach locations from Thursday May 16 to Sunday May 19. A Blues on Broadbeach shuttle bus jointly presented by The Star Gold Coast and Pacific Fair Shopping Centre will offer festival attendees shuttles throughout the Festival between the main Festival hub and the two properties.

The Star Gold Coast will host the ticketed event on Saturday 18th May 2019 from 8pm in the Theatre. For more information and to secure a ticket, click here.

Blues on Broadbeach will run from 16 to 19 May 2019, and has already announced a stellar lineup of local, national and international acts including Canned Heat, Eric Bibb, Bahamas, Charley Crockett, Cedric Burnside and more. For the full lineup so far, visit bluesonbroadbeach.com.
