THE GIPSY KINGS featuring Nicolas Reyes & Tonino Baliardo to Tour Australia For Their 25th Anniversary

Gipsy Kings 2014

World Music Superstars, The Gipsy Kings will be bringing their Gypsy Flamenco, genre bending sound to the Riverside Theatre in Perth on Monday 13th April 2015 as part of their 25th Anniversary Tour. The Gipsy Kings will also be appearing at Bluesfest in Byron Bay, Melbourne, Adelaide and New Zealand.

The Gipsy Kings are returning to Australia after five long years, they are the highest selling artist in French music history, an incredible band and still at the top of their game. They have bought us hits such as ‘Djobi Djoba’, ‘Baila Me’, ‘Bamboléo’, ‘Bem Bem Maria’, ‘Volare’, ‘Tu Quieres Volver’,‘A Mi Manera (Comme D’Habitude)’,‘Vamos A Bailar’ and many more.

Melding deep-heated Flamenco, Rumba, Salsa and Pop to the tune of 25 million albums sold, the Grammy Award-winning hit-makers celebrate their 25th anniversary in their very own, blistering tradition – taking audiences back to the south of France on a ride through party-start guitars and booming Spanish vocals on their third tour of Australia in almost three decades of performing.

Uniting the family Reyes, sons of the legendary Flamenco singer Jose Reyes and the family Baliardo, sons of the legendary million record selling Flamenco guitar player Manitas de Plata, the band continues a tradition that has drawn famous fans such as Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Salvador Dali and Charlie Chaplin who championed their parents, through to the millions of fans who follow the sons. Lead vocalist Nicolas Reyes and lead guitarist Tonino Baliardo continue to lead The Gipsy Kings as they have from the beginning – with their exciting music which fans have described on their recent US tour as their best ever, and they have received reviews such as; “Their music touches the soul and moves my feet”, “They make their audience come alive”, “I have attended 10-12 GK concerts over the years…This without doubt…was their best ever”. Reviews from The Gipsy Kings Beacon Theatre performance, New York – September 6, 2014

From playing on the streets of Cannes and the hedonistic heights of St. Tropez, breaking world music barriers as one of the rare groups to top the US mainstream and world music charts – as well as the Australian and New Zealand charts. Their music has featured on soundtracks of the movies The Big Lebowski, Toy Story 3 and Glee. The band has embraced western classics by Bob Marley, the Doobie Brothers and The Eagles with globe-hopping grace, whilst also embracing dramatic cues from Brazilian and Caribbean culture.

Now bringing the party back to their homeland coliseums and amphitheatres, The Gipsy Kings will raise the roof of the Riverside Theatre with dance-ready furore, returning to their ground-breaking eponymous album and the nomadic spirit that has led them to their latest their Grammy winning album Savor Flamenco – giving audiences the ‘deep shout at the heart of our community.’

Bluesfest Touring has now announced a vast array of talent who will be stopping by our major cities as well as Bluesfest Byron Bay in March and April, 2015. Visit for further sideshow information.
