Beloved Brazilian singer/songwriter Roberto Carlos is gearing up for his first tour in three years with 12 dates scheduled across the States. The U.S. run kicks off April 22 at Miami’s FTX Arena just a few days after his 81st birthday.

An announcement notes that Carlos chose to launch the routing during his birthday week because singing live to his fans is what he likes doing most.

“Even though my records are the ones that have carried my voice, my live performances are what makes me happiest in my career,” Carlos said in a statement. “Knowing that I will be close to my beloved audience again excites me and fills me with joy. On stage I feel more alive than anywhere else.”

During his remarkable career that spans more than six decades he’s sold 150 million records and earned a number of accolades including a Grammy award, two Latin Grammys, Person of the Year award from the Latin Recording Academy, a Lo Nuestro Award, a Crystal Globe, a Billboard Lifetime Achievement Award, an ASCAP Award and a UNICEF Award.

At 81, Carlos shows no signs of slowing down. Along with the U.S. dates, his tour plans include several cities in Mexico, Europe and Brazil. Plus, he’ll be releasing two albums in 2022 – one in Spanish and one in Portuguese.

The U.S. run – which is promoted by Loud And Live, Move Concerts and DC Set – includes stops at Boston’s Agganis Arena, New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Houston’s Smart Financial Centre and The Kia Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

Box office reports submitted to Pollstar for Carlos include a Nov. 14, 2019, show at Movistar Arena in Bogota Colombia, that sold 8,998 tickets and grossed $640,007. The concert was promoted by Move Concerts.
