AFTER SOLD OUT SHOWS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, GABRIEL IS IN INTENSIVE CARE WITH PNEUMONIA
Legendary singer-composer-producer Juan Gabriel, who kicked off his acclaimed “Volver” tour earlier this month, was rushed to intensive care Monday morning in Las Vegas after awakening with fever and congestion. Later in the day, Gabriel was diagnosed with pneumonia necessitating the postponement of his next three shows: April 15 & 16 in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre and April 19 in San Jose at the SAP Center. The shows are being rescheduled and the new dates will be announced later this week by CMN Events who are producing the tour. The remainder of the tour is set to continue as scheduled.
Gabriel kicked off the U.S. leg of the tour on 4/3 and 4/4 with two sold out shows at the Allstate Center in Chicago, where the Chicago Tribune raved, “…like a conquering hero…(Gabriel) once again displayed his total command of the stage. His 2.5-hour concert Friday, with its impeccable showmanship and boundless energy, confirmed that he’s the reigning king (elder statesman division) of the Latin pop realm.”
Sold out shows at Madison Square Garden, the Toyota Center in Houston and Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas followed. On Sunday night at Mandalay Bay, Gabriel, known affectionately as “Juanga” by fans, played his full show plus 30 minutes beyond his curtain time to appease the crowds who were on their feet for the full 3 hours and have waited over 7 years to see him tour.
