During a press conference Tuesday at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, rock-pop singer Gloria Trevi said she’s thrilled to be touring the U.S. this year.
“We’ll start off by talking about the tour to promote De Pelicula. The tour will start on February 7, in Texas. I’m very excited,” said Trevi. “We’ll be in Dallas and Houston, which coincides with my birthday on February 15. I’m really looking forward to this tour, and I’ll get to visit cities where I have never performed before like Washington, and Denver. I’ll also be performing in Portland, Chicago, New York, among others. This Friday, tickets will go on sale here in Los Angeles for the tour dates. When I visit LA, I’ll be performing at the Nokia Theatre. ”
Trevi performs Friday, May 23 at the Nokia Theatre.
Trevi also said her latest album, De Pelicula, is doing well in terms of sales.
“This year started off very well for me,” she said. “De Pelicula went platinum. I’m very proud of this project, and its songs. They literally serve as a soundtrack of life. It’s full of emotion, sex, and passion.”
The 45-year-old Mexican singer went on to touch base on the upcoming biopic about her life. Trevi claims she never intended to sign over the rights to the people who are making it, so there have been legal issues.
“That matter is in the hands of my attorneys at the moment, and we’ll go by whatever justice decides. I’ve always believed in justice, and whether or not one agrees with a decision, we should abide by it so that there’s always order,” said Trevi.
“As it stands now, I am completely against [this film.] I feel betrayed, because I was told things would happen one way, then suddenly persons who should not have been involved were brought on board,” she added. “I’ve worked very hard to distance myself from these people who did much harm to me and exploited me. I would never, willingly, make the decision to work with these people on any level.”
