Roberto Carlos Live in Concert

Brazilian pop-rock trailblazer Roberto Carlos is known to many as "the King of Latin Music." With a career spanning more than half a century, Carlos has sold more than 140 million albums globally and is considered one of the most influential pop artists in Brazil and the world. With the help of co-writer and frequent collaborator Erasmo Carlos, Roberto Carlos has written more than three dozen Top 10-charting singles.

Born to a lower middle-class family in 1941, Carlos began playing the guitar and piano as a child. At just 9 years old, he performed for the first time at a children's show broadcast by Rádio Cachoeiro, where he won first prize and became a regular performer.

As a teenager, Carlos moved to Rio de Janeiro and formed a band originally called the Snacks, which was later renamed the Sputniks. In the late '50s, Carlos went solo and performed bossa nova in the style of Brazilian singer João Gilberto. When his first full-length album, 1961's Louco Por Você (Crazy for You), failed to achieve commercial success, Carlos switched back to rock music.

As a pop/rock musician, Carlos drew influence from then-popular American and British acts such as Little Richard, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, and The Beatles. He eventually became the face of "Jovem Guarda" (Young Guard), which started as a TV show hosted by Carlos but eventually became a catchphrase for a Brazilian musical movement influenced by the Western midcentury rock and roll wave. Carlos' 1964 album, É Proibido Fumar, especially exemplified this upbeat sound and style, also known in Brazil as iê-iê-iê ("yeah-yeah-yeah").

In the late '60s, Carlos began to pivot his artistry to specialize more in love songs. Along with close collaborator Erasmo Carlos, Roberto Carlos penned now-famous hits such as "Detalhes," "Sua Estupidez," "Jesus Cristo," and "Debaixo dos Caracóis dos Seus Cabelos," earning him Grammy accolades and top chart placements in Latin America. Carlos' love songs became especially popular in neighboring Argentina, and by the '70s, he had become the best-selling Brazilian musician in history.

In 1988, Carlos won a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance, plus several Latin Grammys in the early 2000s. In 2015, the Latin Recording Academy honored him with the prestigious Person of the Year award. In 2009, Carlos celebrated his 50th anniversary as a performer, touring through North and South America to honor the achievement alongside fans. More recently, Carlos released his 2018 Spanish-language album Amor Sin Límite, which featured duets with Jennifer Lopez ("Llegaste") and Alejandro Sanz ("Esa Mujer").

    Over a $1,800.00 dollars for seats that felt like a $1!

    by V. A. on 6/1/22Abraham Chavez Theatre - El Paso

    In all honesty...It was my first time seeing Roberto Carlos live and it was one of the most exciting things in my life as I am originally from Brasil! However, it is absolutely a disgrace that Abraham Chavez Theater thinks that it is okay to charge almost $2,000.00 dollars for seats that are uncomfortable, you can barely walk in between rows, are cheap foldable chairs and you feel like sardines!! I am sure that there is someone that can figure out a way to still offer those seat in a more comfortable manner.....Please?!?!?

    by J. M. on 5/27/22Rosemont Theatre - Rosemont

    When i was 9 my dad took me to see this artisit. #robertocarlos. I was not happy about going. But it changed my life.... Years later we danced to one of his songs at my wedding.... 9 Years later i took him to see #robertocarlos and we sat in the nose bleed section. Last week, i had the privilege and blessing to go with him again... and sat in seats closer to the stage. Roberto Carlos is a true performer. Classy! Elegant! Funny! Engaging! Talented! All good things..... highly recommend

    INCREDIBLE

    by Good old days on 5/23/22Abraham Chavez Theatre - El Paso

    Different generations gather at this spectacular concert. It was a full house and the sound was very good, Roberto Carlos was incredible! At his age and performing the way he did was magnificent. Bringing back beautiful memories with his songs, and lyrics. He was a singer I wish I had seen and when I saw the advertisement that he was coming to El Paso It was just a wish come true.

    Still the best

    by Maria on 5/22/22Abraham Chavez Theatre - El Paso

    I am so grateful to see Roberto Carlos live! I think I was probably the only 24 year old there, but that music is still as beautiful as when I first heard it when I was a little girl. Please, bring more great artists like Roberto Carlos more often. This was a dream come true.
