From leader to legend, Yandel wants everyone to see his incredible journey to delivering an unforgettable concert. HBO LATINO, HBO’s dedicated Spanish-language premium channel, announces the highly-anticipated, Yandel: Legacy-De Lider a Leyenda Tour acquired from Sony Music Latin is a presentation of HBO Latino Concerts, premiering Friday, April 10th at 8PM ET/7CT. The special, Yandel: Camino al Concierto, will air at 7:30PM ET/6:30PM CT leading up to the concert.
Filmed in Puerto Rico last fall, the 90-minute concert special captures the essence of Yandel’s sizzling new solo act. Surrounding his landmark sold-out performance at José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum, watch Yandel and his legion of musical collaborators explode with euphoric energy, igniting the stage with reggaeton anthems from his multiplatinum-selling discography and hits off his Latin Grammy-nominated, certified-gold solo album, De Líder a Leyenda (From Leader to Legend), which was released late 2013 and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart.
HBO Latino invites viewers on a journey to Puerto Rico, where he candidly reflects upon the ascension of his career, giving fans an exclusive, all-access pass to meet Yandel, the man, musician, entrepreneur and leader. Fellow trailblazing reggeatoneros such as Wisin, Tego Calderón, Farruko and tropical music kings like Gilberto Santa Rosa, who have each inspired or collaborated with the thriving soloist, are just some of the featured musicians, who make cameos in support of Yandel’s concert preparation. Along with this special, all-access pass, HBO Latino will be releasing five one-minute webisodes titled Marcando Territorio, of extra behind-the-scenes footage that will be released leading up to the premiere of the concert special.
An exciting time for the reggeaton heavyweight, after his incredible triumph as a solo artist in 2014, Yandel just released a second solo album, Legacy: De Líder a Leyenda Tour Deluxe Version in February 2015. Already a friend to the HBO brand, he recently lent his lyrical skills to the Catch the Throne: The Mixtape Vol. 2, the soundtrack compilation with “Marcando Territorio,” for HBO’s ground-breaking series Game of Thrones.
The 2015 premiere of Yandel: Legacy- De Lider A Leyenda Tour and Yandel: Camino al Concierto is the first installment representing reggeaton and the Urban Latino genre, marking a full circle for the HBO Latino Concerts portfolio, which has already enjoyed success with riveting specials about internationally acclaimed Hispanic artists such as Romeo Santos (The King Stays King), Carlos Santana (Live it to Believe it, Live From Mexico), Thalia (Viva Tour En Vivo) and Reik (En Vivo Desde El Auditorio Nacional). Each HBO Latino Concerts special (except for Romeo Santos) is available for 24-7 viewing on HBO On Demand and HBO GO within the “Documentaries” categories.
