Melendi Magic

If you’re looking for an evening filled with rock, flamenco, and rumba, head to Alicante for the Spanish leg of Melendi’s tour, aptly named “20 Years Without News.”

After selling out 19 dates across Spain and selling over 185,000 tickets in record time, Melendi has announced additional tour dates in both Latin America and Spain.

The extended tour will continue throughout 2024, giving his dedicated fans another chance to experience his dynamic live performances.

Melendi’s overwhelming success is fueled by the high demand from his legion of followers, many of whom have not yet had the opportunity to see him live.

This tour will see Melendi headlining major festivals across the country, performing the anthems his fans have loved for years.

In addition to his iconic hits, Melendi will revisit songs from his earlier albums, including some tracks he hasn’t performed live in over 15 years.

Melendi, born in Oviedo, Asturias, shares a unique background.

He went to school with Formula One driver Fernando Alonso, even dedicating the song “Magic Alonso” to him.

Although he briefly pursued racing and football, Melendi ultimately found his calling in music.

He played in the lower ranks of Astur CF, a reserve team for Real Oviedo, and worked as a waiter in several bars.

These experiences fuelled the lyrics of his songs.

The concert will take place at Area 12 in Alicante. Doors open at 9:00.PM on Friday, 12 July.
