Nicolas Reyes has been the leader and co-founder of the Gipsy Kings for more than 30 years. In the past three decades, they have dominated the World Music charts and sold more than 14 million albums worldwide. Their platinum compilation, The Best of the Gipsy Kings, was charting for over a year upon its release and their ninth studio album, Savor Flamenco, was awarded the Grammy for Best World Music Album in 2013.
The traveling Gipsy Kings have played some of the world’s greatest stages, from the Hollywood Bowl to Royal Albert Hall as well as hitting the big screen. Their rendition of “Hotel California” was included in the film The Big Lebowski and the HBO series Entourage. The 2010 film Toy Story 3 featured a Gipsy Kings version of the movie’s popular, Randy Newman-penned theme, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” The Gipsy Kings recently featured in a Big Lebowski spinoff The Jesus Rolls with Reyes appearing in person with the director and star, John Turturro, for some of the promotion.
Treena Parvello, Director of Government and Public Relations for the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, said, “Southern Arizona fans are in for an international treat. Famed Gipsy Kings featuring Nicholas Reyes are stopping at the Diamond Center on August 5. Tickets are $35 and go on sale March 10.”
