Gloria Trevi at the Greek Theatre in L.A. (Ramon Aviles / Living Out Loud LA)
During a press conference today at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, Latin pop music icon Gloria Trevi presented herself differently.
We, of course, are referring to her much talked about Mr. Trevi figure, inspired by her latest CD / DVD combo, dubbed El Amor, releasing Friday, Aug. 21 in all platforms.
Mr. Trevi also has a penned show at L.A.’s much-acclaimed venue, Greek Theatre, this Friday, Aug. 21 at 7:30 p.m. It’s part of her “El Amor World Tour”, which features stops in Texas, Nevada, Arizona, Illinois and Massachusetts. More shows in different states are expected as time comes.
Trevi’s also got 2 shows in South America: Chile and Peru.
The majority of the tour pays tribute to El Amor, which consists of several hits from the Latin music repertoire of all time. At her shows, Trevi will perform tracks off of that release with a full live orchestra while dressed as Mr. Trevi.
Trevi promises to impress.
“It will be more than 70 people on stage,” she says. “At times you attend a concert where fans don’t particularly know the songs…But everyone knows all of these songs. It’ll be a very familiar moment during the show for who attends and they’ll be speechless.”
However, she’s expected to perform tunes from her extensive musical catalogue from her rather illustrious career, too.
“We are talking about a strong Mr. Trevi and a romantic Mrs. Gloria; she’s the one who makes the public stand up during concerts, much like ‘Pelo Suelto’” she says.
One of the key moments of the press conference was when Trevi herself thanked God for the inspiration of El Amor. She also mentions she’s happy for what she’s currently living and feeling before touching upon the time in her life where she had to play the role of father and mother at the same time.
And on stage the public will see two of her: Mr. Trevi and Gloria Trevi.
“You’ll all see on stage a Mr. Trevi – that figure I have inside of me”, says Trevi. “And then Mrs. Gloria Trevi, who is vulnerable, unshielded, without protection, sweet and romantic.”
