Juan Luis Guerra  – one of biggest and most enduring stars of Latin music for the past quarter of a century makes his Albert Hall debut on 14 October when he plays only his second ever show in London.

Juan Luis Guerra and his band 4.40, have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, won two Grammy awards and 17 Latin Grammys including one last year for best Contemporary Tropical Album. His big band style blending merengue, bachata and bolero with an Afro-pop/Latin fusion has gained him a huge success across the Spanish-speaking world.

He brings his mighty A Son De Guerra show from the Dominican Republic to London for one night only in October.

His eleventh, and latest studio album, A Son De Guerra, debuted at number one on the iTunes Latin chart in the US, Spain and Mexico on its first day and went on to reach no. 1 on the overall chart in Spain and Colombia ultimately winning a Latin Grammy for Album of the Year – the second time he has won that particular honour. The album A Son De Guerra features a collaboration with Colombian heavyweight Juanes on the song La Calle.
