Mexican singer Ana Gabriel said she planned to perform on June 9 at the Altos de Chavon amphitheater in La Romana, a province in the eastern Dominican Republic, using the concert to record her new album, which is scheduled to be released in September.

"I'm really excited, Altos de Chavon is a beautiful and magical place, and the Dominican people are known for their warmth, it'll be the perfect place for this great moment in my career, it'll be unforgettable," the singer said in a statement released by her representatives in Santo Domingo.

Ana Gabriel, who scored hits with "Quien como tu," "Amigos, simplemente amigos," "Ay amor," "El cigarrillo" and "Cosas del amor," will travel to the Caribbean country with her musicians and mariachis.

Tickets to the event will be by invitation only and distributed mainly via radio stations in the Dominican Republic.

Ana Gabriel will be joined on stage by Dominican singer Eddy Herrera, who performs merengue, ballads and boleros, as well as Mexican ranchera and corrido songs. EFE
