International superstars Marco Antonio Solis and Ana Gabriel announced today that they will headline their first ever tour together this summer. The multi-city HACIENDO HISTORIA is a matchup of two of Mexico’s most respected and successful performers/songwriters playing some of the most exciting and important music in the world. The Live Nation produced tour kicks off on June 10th in Sacramento and continues in full force through August and September.
Ana Gabriel and Marco Antonio have a lot in common. They are singers, songwriters and producers with immensely successful recording and touring careers of their own. Their tour is more than a concert; it’s a showcase of two of Mexico’s top talents and this summer’s most exciting event!
