Two-time GRAMMY Award winning and four-time Latin GRAMMY Award winning singer/songwriter Marc Anthony brings his “Cambio de Piel” tour to Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL, on Saturday, September 20th, 2014, at 8:00pm. The tour takes its name from the second single from Marc Anthony 3.0 “Cambio de Piel” (Change of Skin). The song became his record setting twenty-fourth number one hit on the Billboard Tropical Airplay chart solidifying Anthony as the artist with the most number one songs on that list.
Constantly in demand for concerts and touring, “Gigant3S,” Anthony’s US and Latin American tour with Marco Antonio Solis and Chayanne, topped 2012’s Billboard Hot Latin Tours charts. His world tour “Vivir Mi Vida” was included in PollStar’s top selling tours of 2013, it was extended to May 2014 by popular demand, and received a Premio Juventud for Super Tour of the Year. The “Cambio de Piel” tour now follows the widely successful “Vivir Mi Vida World Tour”.
Marc Anthony has sold over 12 million albums worldwide, making him one of the most celebrated performers in Latin music history and a true ambassador of Latin music and culture. He began his recording career singing the English-language dance music known as freestyle, but hit his stride between 1993 and 1997 with his first three salsa albums (Otra Nota, Todo a Su Tiempo, and Contra La Corriente). These productions established him as the top-selling singer in the history of the genre, able to sell out Madison Square Garden and prestigious venues internationally.
In 2013, Marc Anthony returned to the recording studio to work on his first project of original music in the tropical genre in nearly a decade. The project’s first single, “Vivir Mi Vida” (an adaptation of Algerian singer Khaled’s “C’est La Vie”), marked his reencounter with the producer of many of the greatest hits of his long career, Sergio George. Within hours of its release in April 2013, “Vivir Mi Vida,” produced by Marc Anthony and Sergio George, went to #1 on iTunes, Billboard, and radio on a national level, and continued to occupy that position for 18 consecutive weeks, making it the longest-running #1 salsa single of all time.
A passionate humanitarian, Anthony announced the creation of his Maestro Cares Foundation in January 2012, in a joint endeavor with business associate Henry Cardenas, to address the housing, academic and health challenges that orphaned children face each day in developing Latin American countries. The non-profit organization opened its first orphanage to house children in urgent need, “Niños de Cristo,” in La Romana, Dominican Republic on April 2nd, 2014, providing a home to more than 150 children.
