One of the biggest Bachata bands of Latin America, Aventura, is back and touring together after Romeo Santos returned from his solo career. The band formed in the early ‘90s and the New York natives quickly earned a spot at the top of the contemporary Latin pop music list. Aventura first earned a major radio hit in 2003 with the single “Obsesión” and later went on to earn No. 1 spots for singles on Billboard’s Latin music charts, including fan favorites like “Dile al Amor,” “Los Infieles” and “El Malo.” The name of their current tour pays homage to their latest reunion hit and lead single by lead singer Santos, “Inmortal.” This is the band’s first tour in more than 10 years. Additionally, this is their first reunion concert since 2016. The Inmortal Tour was originally canceled amid COVID and is now being offered in select states, including New Jersey. Requirements may include masks, vaccination cards or a negative COVID test result.
