“BENISE: FUEGO! SPIRIT OF SPAIN”
WORLD TOUR SEPTEMBER 21 IN ANAHEIM, CA

‘FUEGO!’

“I wanted to push the boundaries of traditional Nuevo Flamenco/Spanish guitar while combining the elements of dance and theater. This show is a celebration of music, love, and life…”
–BENISE

BENISE, “The Prince of Spanish Guitar,” will take his celebration of cultures from around the world on the road this fall and into 2019 with his 60-city “BENISE: FUEGO! SPIRIT OF SPAIN” global tour kicking off September 21 in Anaheim, CA. He’ll follow these performances with shows in China in October and November, before a week of European dates in late November.

The Emmy Award-winning composer and virtuoso guitarist and an international cast of musicians and dancers from Brazil, Cuba, France, Italy, Canada, Mexico, China, Venezuela and the U.S. will entertain audiences with a two-hour show that “is an escape from all their problems,” he says. “Much like the recent PBS special, with this show I want to take the audience on an escape to Spain…to a beautiful Spanish courtyard filled with Flamenco dancers, stunning costumes, and fiery Spanish guitars. Our upcoming tour will incorporate all the new songs, costumes, choreography, and set from the new PBS special ‘Fuego!'” Beyond the new material, BENISE says the live show will incorporate “some fan favorites from my street performing days and rock classics like Led Zeppelin’s ‘Kashmir’ and some AC/DC.”

BENISE adds, “This is a great show for the whole family; I really think we have something for everyone. I hope people will be inspired–by our story, by the music, by the production–and have the passion to follow their own dreams. I have always been a gypsy and love to travel, my heritage is Bohemian (from Prague), so I think it’s in my blood. I can’t wait to go to new cities, meet new people, and play every night–it’s what I live for.”

For his recent (June 2018) BENISE: FUEGO! SPIRIT OF SPAIN PBS special–his fourth for the network–BENISE is armed with his Spanish guitar and backed by a stage full of musicians and elaborately choreographed dancers, handpicked by BENISE from an international pool of talent. Flamenco dancers take center stage in a tribute to Old World Spain, while breathtaking couture fashions and innovative staging and choreography give Spanish dance a fresh and luminous makeover. FUEGO! captures world music at its best, with a show that appeals to the hearts and souls of people of all ages, cultures and musical backgrounds. With a beautiful and charming Spanish courtyard as the backdrop, BENISE debuts all new music, dance and costumes, adding his signature twist on such classics as “Granada,” “Malaguena,” “Moonlight Sonata,” “Asturias” and “Adagio.”
