Romeo Santos, widely known as “The King of Bachata,” and his original band, Aventura, are reuniting for what they say will be their final tour together. The “Cerrando Ciclos” (Closing Cycles) tour, which kicks off May 1 in Sacramento, California, will hit UBS Arena in Elmont on June 5. Tickets are now on sale. 

“This year there is something I must accomplish and conclude,” Santos said in a press statement. “I want you to join me on a journey where I will be definitively closing cycles. Because it is not the same to remember beautiful times as it is to be a prisoner of the past. We cannot stagnate in the nostalgia of yesterday, but rather move forward, discover new horizons, and show other facets.”

Santos and Aventura last joined forces for their 2020 Immortal Tour, which grossed $25.8 million, according to figures reported to Billboard.

Aventura formed in the Bronx in 1994. The band — Romeo Santos (then going by Anthony), Henry Santos, a cousin of Romeo’s, and the brothers Lenny and Max Santos (no relation) — are widely credited with modernizing bachata, the romantic musical genre that originated in the Dominican Republic

Meanwhile, UBS Arena will also host Mega Bash MX, featuring the biggest names in Regional Mexican music (an umbrella term encompassing musical genres from the different parts of rural Mexico and the Southwestern United States), on June 21. The lineup includes Banda MS, Luis R. Conriquez, Marca Registrada, Majo Aguilar and Tony Aguirre. Tickets go on sale March 7 at 7 a.m.
