NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HBO LATINO®, HBO's dedicated Spanish-language premium channel, announces the highly anticipated HBO Latino Concerts® special, Reik: En Vivo Desde El Auditorio Nacional, acquired by Sony Music Latin, premiering Friday, February 13th at 8PM ET/7C, in celebration of Valentine's Day Weekend.
The 90-minute concert special and documentary, filmed in Mexico, is a vibrant sound history and coming of age tale, featuring high-impact performances from a menu of Reik's most memorable hits. The award-winning trio, lead vocalist Jesus Alberto Navarro, acoustic guitarist Julio Ramírez Eguía and electric guitarist Gilberto "Bibi" Marin detail the band's musical passage to reflect upon their decade long journey as one of Latin music's most beloved pop-rock artists.
With consecutive chart-topping acoustic balladry and romantically charged hits like "Creo en Ti", "Peligro" and "Inolvidable", Reik is love's unfaultable musical ambassador. Reik: En Vivo Desde El Auditorio Nacional is the most fitting TV event for Latin music fans to cozy up to during Valentine's Day Weekend or La Semana del Amor y la Amistad (Week of Love and Friendship).
Reik front man, Jesus Navarro is no stranger to the HBO Latino Concerts® arena as the renowned vocalist appeared in fan-favorite special Thalia, Viva Tour En Vivo, where he performed during the highly anticipated icon's homecoming concert that premiered last fall.
Reik: En Vivo Desde El Auditorio Nacional is the fourth installment to HBO Latino's popular HBO Latino Concerts®, joining the acclaimed specials for the most luminescent Hispanic musicians, Romeo Santos (The King Stays King), Carlos Santana (Live it to Believe it, Live From Mexico) in addition to Thalia's (Viva Tour En Vivo).
