Due to overwhelming fan demand, Maná have announced an unprecedented seventh show in the same year at The Forum, or as a spokesperson at the storied Inglewood venue and former home of the Los Angeles Lakers put it, “Maná makes history today by becoming the first artist that will perform seven shows in one year at the Fabulous Forum since our reopening in 2014.”
The spokesperson added that “Maná also holds our record for most shows since the reopening at 11. The Forum is proud and honored to be the home to Maná’s historic run of shows.”
Tickets for the Dec. 7 show go on sale starting at 10 a.m. Friday at LiveNation.com.
Maná kicks off their highly anticipated “Rayando El Sol Tour” with a performance on this morning’s Good Morning America on ABC and, tonight, they host a live stream of an intimate performance on their YouTube channel for their fans beginning at 6 p.m.
The tour, which is named after the Maná ’single “Rayando El Sol,” makes 35 stops across the U.S. starting Aug. 31. Other LA Forum shows are Sept. 20-22 and Nov. 22-24. The Dec. 7 concert closes out the tour.
