At a Gipsy Kings concert, there is no shortage of energy, or, for that matter, musicians. During each live performance, two bands of brothers, the ¬Reyes and the Baliardos—cousins of each other and sons of renowned flamenco artists—pile onstage to work up the crowd with a signature sound they've coined "rumba gitano." This happy marriage of South American–rumba rhythms and furious-flamenco guitar strumming spans cultures and keeps bodies moving like an ice-cream truck that won’t stop.
The family members have been playing together for more than 30 years, beginning as refugees in southern France during their native Spain’s civil war. After humbly busking on the streets of Cannes, the group became international sensations with its 1987 self-titled debut. Since then, the members have notched seven No. 1 albums on Billboard_’s Top World Albums chart, including _The Best of the Gipsy Kings, which spent 42 weeks at the top. Hits such as "Bamboleo," “Volare," and popular interpretations of songs such as the Eagles’ "Hotel California" unite audiences, no matter their linguistic limitations, into a throng of chorus shouters.
Fox Theatre, originally opened in 1929, has long been established as a venue for legendary performances, earning induction into the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. Domed entryways, walls lined with pastoral murals, intricate chandeliers, and a palette of brilliant gold and crimson hint at the venue's Moorish influences, which eclectically clash with the ordered lines of its Gothic exterior.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
