Miami – Singer-songwriter Pablo Milanes, one of the leading figures in contemporary Cuban music, will offer his first concert in Miami as part of an upcoming U.S. tour, Fuego Entertainment, Inc. said.
The 68-year-old artist has made some 30 albums and is a two-time Grammy winner.
"Pablo Milanes is without a doubt a music icon that is followed by millions of fans around the world. We are extremely excited and proud to have the opportunity to produce his first U.S. tour in almost a decade," Fuego's president and CEO, Hugo Cancio, said in a press release.
While exact dates and venues for the Aug. 25-Sept. 26 tour have yet to be announced, the tour will include concerts in New York, Washington, Boston, San Francisco, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, as well as Miami.
The U.S. government has already issued visas for Milanes, his musicians and crew, Cancio said.
Milanes and Silvio Rodriguez were the pioneers of Cuba's nueva trova movement in the 1960s.
