Gipsy Kings, featuring Nicolas Reyes and Tonino Baliardo, return to the Greek Theatre to celebrate their 25th anniversary under the stars in L.A. Already an international hit, the Gipsy Kings burst onto the American music scene with their 1989 self-titled album release. The Gipsy Kings introduced millions of U.S. listeners to the band's unique, irresistible blend of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms. Since then, the band has toured virtually non-stop, to the farthest-flung corners of the planet, and sold almost twenty million albums, all the while retaining the same line-up of virtuoso musicians. Their music has been featured on television in such diverse projects as Dancing With the Stars, Entourage and movies such as Toy Story 3, Fearless and The Big Lebowski. The Gipsy Kings' most recent album Savor Flamenco won a 2014 Grammy for Best World Music Album. Expect to hear songs from Savor Flamenco as well as old favorites in this exciting outdoor show. The opening act is Ole' Noys, the sons of the Gipsy Kings' Tonino Baliardo and Nicolas Reyes. Learn More

The Gay Men’s Chorus of LA has gone completely “Hollywood” with this version of their annual holiday concert which has become a seasonal tradition with its audiences as the way to celebrate this special time of year! Some of our favorite holiday songs have come from Hollywood—and here they are! Sprinkled with a little L.A. snow (false) and a lot of GMCLA style (true), the Chorus will sing audiences into the holiday season as only the Chorus knows how!
About the Ticket Supplier: Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles
Hailed by the LA Times as “one of the last important links to a glorious tradition in music,” Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles has been a notable part of Southern California for almost thirty-five years. Formed in 1979 as a completely volunteer effort of 99 men, GMCLA has doubled in size, gained professional artistic and administrative staff, toured internationally, released fifteen compact discs, and appeared with numerous stage, film, and television celebrities like Lily Tomlin, Melissa Manchester, Jerry Herman, Valarie Pettiford and LeAnn Rimes.
Among the many “firsts” of this dynamic arts organization, GMCLA was the first gay ensemble to perform for a sitting U.S. President (both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama); the first openly gay performers to be broadcast over Russian television in 1999; the first gay chorus to tour central Europe (1991) and South America (2006), created the original musical “It Gets Better”to combat anti-LGBT bullying (currently on a U.S. tour), and recently performed at the Academy Awards.
In addition to their vocal excellence, GMCLA wows audiences with their uniquely theatrical and inventive productions, performing three major concerts each season. They bring their music education program, Alive Music Project, to high school students across Los Angeles to build bridges between all communities by sharing music and their personal stories. GMCLA sings for a future free from homophobia and discrimination of all kinds.
