‘Cirque du Soleil’ is creating a show inspired by the music and story of ‘Soda Stereo.’
Set to debut in March 2017 in Buenos Aires, the spectacle will be the first Cirque de Soleil production based on a Latin artist, coming after previous tributes to Michael Jackson, The Beatles and Elvis Presley.
Zeta Bosio, the bassist of the legendary Argentine rock trio says… “The sequence of Elvis, Los Beatles, Michael Jackson and now Soda Stereo is tremendous. The contract has been signed and the project is in motion.”
Soda Stereo, gained popularity with their fresh pop-rock sound in 1980’s Argentina, went on to enormous success throughout Latin America and, eventually, the Latin U.S. The band broke up in 1997 and staged a come-back tour a decade later, attended by millions.
The show will feature Soda’s songs and touch upon the story of the musicians and the times and the city that gave birth to the band. It will be a co-production between Cirque de Soleil, leading Argentine music promoter Pop Art and Triple, Soda’s production company.
Cirque de Soleil and the Argentine producers plan to tour the Soda spectacular after its first run in Buenos Aires.
