The future home of the Sacramento Kings is set for a night of “Latino Power.” Mexican rock stars Maná are the second concert announced for downtown’s Golden 1 Center, with a Wednesday, Nov. 9 performance. The Sacramento appearance is the final stop on Mana’s nationwide “Latino Power Tour.”
Maná is among the most successful bands in Latin rock, with tens of millions of albums sold around the world, including nine No. 1 albums and eight Latin Grammy awards. The band is known for its wide choruses and power ballads, which sometimes result in soccer-like chants from the crowd during its performances.
The band is no stranger to Sacramento. The band has performed numerous times at the current arena, including shows at 2012 and 2015 at Sleep Train Arena. In 1999, when it was known as Arco Arena, Maná performed with Santana in one of the best concerts in the venue. That concert ended with a high-energy jam featuring Santana with members of Maná and the opening act Ozomatli. Pharoah Sanders, the great modern jazz saxophonist who once lived in the Sacramento area, also sat-in during this epic closer.
More concerts and shows are expected to be announced soon for Golden 1 Center and a string of performances that will help inaugurate the building when it opens in October. A concert on Saturday, Oct. 15, featuring pop-rockers Maroon 5 was previously announced.
Tickets for Maná go on sale Friday, Feb. 19 at 9 a.m. For more information: LiveNation.com.
