Romeo Santos, the trailblazing Latin superstar who has revolutionized the Bachata music genre has announced, alongside Sony Music Latin, Endeavor Streaming and iNDemand, that concert film “Romeo Santos: Utopia Live From MetLife Stadium” and documentary film “Romeo Santos: King of Bachata” will both premiere on June 25, 2021 on pay-per-view.
“These films have been such a special project for me, and I’m honored and eager to show it to the world and pull back the curtain on the history of Bachata,” said Romeo Santos. “For the film to showcase my upbringing and build up to my performance at MetLife Stadium, where I became the first Latin artist to sell out the venue, it gives me an opportunity to relive one of the most incredible nights of my life while also bringing it inside the homes of my fans across the world.”
The concert film, “Romeo Santos: Utopia Live From MetLife Stadium,” spotlights Bachata’s biggest champion and superstar, Dominican singer-songwriter Romeo Santos, and his historical record-breaking performance at the MetLife Stadium. The concert features, for the first time on stage, all the legendary bachateros from his album “Utopia” and the reunion of Aventura in an evening full of hits and surprises from the King of Bachata.
The documentary film, “Romeo Santos: King of Bachata,” intertwines the history of Bachata with the musical legacy of Romeo Santos, following fellow Dominican The Kid Mero as he traces the ascent of the disenfranchised genre of Bachata from the oppressed countryside of the Dominican Republic to its unprecedented international recognition. Santos also travels the countryside, performing for free on his “La Gira del Pueblo” tour to small towns and villages—most of which have never held a concert before. Between tour dates, audiences get a behind-the-scenes look at Santos’ creative process, as he works tirelessly in the studio on unreleased music.
Notable guests appearing in the films include: Aventura, Cardi B, Daddy Yankee, El Chaval De La Bachata, Elvis Martínez, Emilio Estefan, Frank Reyes, Joe Veras, Kiko Rodríguez, Luis Vargas, Marc Anthony, Monchy & Alexandra, Raulín Rodríguez, Sergio Mendes, Thalia, Tommy Mottola, Zacarías Ferreira and more.
The digital pay-per-view event will be powered by Endeavor Streaming, an industry leader in streaming and OTT distribution. Starting today, May 13, fans can purchase their digital ticket to the event. In addition, apps will be made available on iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Android TV in their respective app stores. iNDemand, the leading transactional video-on-demand and PPV programming provider in North America, will serve as the exclusive U.S. cable and telco PPV provider for the event. Fans will be able to order the films on PPV through their existing cable and telco PPV providers, including Xfinity, Spectrum, Contour, Fios, and Optimum.
