Latin rock mainstay Maná added a seventh show at The Forum in Los Angeles to its “Rayando El Sol” fall tour on Monday. The group’s tour will now end Dec. 7 at the venue, and follows previously announced three-show Forum runs scheduled for Sept. 20-22 and Nov. 22-24.

“Maná makes history today by becoming the first artist that will perform seven shows in one year at the ‘Fabulous’ Forum since our reopening in 2014,” a Forum spokesperson said in a statement. “Maná also holds our record for most shows since the reopening at 11. The Forum is proud and honored to be the home to Maná’s historic run of shows.”

Los Angeles has been a historically strong market for Maná. According to Pollstar Boxoffice reports, the band’s highest-grossing stand was a sold-out, four-show run at the city’s Staples Center that grossed $5.17 million and sold 53,056 tickets from June 23-26, 2011. Maná’s next highest-grossing stand was another sold-out, four-show run at the venue, in Sept. 2007, that grossed $4.39 million.

Maná will perform on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Aug. 14 to celebrate the Live Nation-produced “Rayando El Sol” tour, which begins Aug. 31 at Sames Auto Arena in Laredo, Texas and will hit arenas in Dallas, Las Vegas, Denver, Chicago, Brooklyn, Atlanta and more.

“Maná is a true touring powerhouse,” Bob Roux, Live Nation president of U.S. concerts, said in a statement. “The fan demand for their tickets puts Maná in the rarified realm of the absolute biggest bands in the U.S. Everyone at Live Nation feels so proud and very privileged to have had the opportunity to play a small part in what they have accomplished.”

Maná’s last North American tour, in 2016, helped the group secure a No. 88 ranking on Pollstar‘s Year End Top 200 North American Tours chart with $13.6 million grossed. Box office highlights from that tour include $1.82 million grossed and 13,316 tickets sold at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sept. 16, 2016, and $1.35 million grossed at Dallas’ American Airlines Center on Oct. 2, 2016. Maná will return to both venues this fall.

Tickets for Maná’s Dec. 7 Los Angeles date go on sale to the general public on Aug. 16 at 10 a.m. local time. Find the band’s full list of tour dates here.
