Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Cardenas Marketing Network (CMN) and the stars of this summer’s hottest Latin music tour, GIGANT3S, featuring international pop icon Chayanne, acclaimed singer/producer Marc Anthony, and Latin America’s preeminent singer/songwriter Marco Antonio Solis, are set to kick off their wildly anticipated tour on Friday, August 3 from Miami’s American Airlines Arena. The award-winning artists will begin rehearsals later this month in Miami for an unprecedented tour that will take them to 16 cities across the U.S., including New York, Atlantic City, Chicago, Orlando, San Antonio, Houston, San Jose, and Las Vegas, among others.
CMN, which is producing the entire tour, also announced that the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism is sponsoring the GIGANT3S shows in Miami and New Jersey.
“The wait is over and we’re excited to kick off this tour,” said the Mexican-born Solis, whose just-released album, “Una Noche de Luna,” a live concert from Buenos Aires’ Luna Park, debuted at #1 and currently sits at # 2 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart. “I’m looking forward to seeing our fans and sharing the stage with two great friends and truly talented artists.”

"Being in front of an audience is special, but doing it along with Marco and Marc will be unforgettable. In some ways we are very different, but when it comes to putting on a great show for our fans, we have very much in common. Plus, we’ve got a few surprises in store for everyone", said the multi platinum Chayanne, who is renowned for his live performances.
Anthony, who recently received the prestigious ASCAP Founders Award, said, “I’m such a big fan of theirs. I’m looking forward to spending time with our fans and getting back onstage to perform with two of my favorite artists. Our styles may be different, but we share the same passion for music.”
