“These films have been such a special project for me, and I am honored and eager to show it to the world and raise the curtain on the history of Bachata,” Santos shares. “For the film to showcase my education and strengthen my performance at MetLife Stadium, where I became the first Latin artist to sell the venue, it gives me the opportunity to relive one of the most incredible nights of my life while bringing in the homes of my fans around the world.
Romeo Santos: Utopia live from MetLife stadium highlights Bachata’s greatest champion and superstar, Dominican singer-songwriter Romeo Santos, and his historic record breaking performance at MetLife Stadium. The concert presents, for the first time on stage, all the legendary bachateros of his album Utopia and the reunion of Aventura in an evening full of success and surprises from the King of Bachata.
