It's been three years in the making and Cirque Du Soleil is officially making the rounds with their latest show: Sep7imo Día (translated to Seventh Day).
The Canadian entertainment company, which so happens to be the largest theatrical producer in the world, is bringing to life the story of one of the most legendary rock bands in history: Soda Stereo.
For those who are living under a rock, Soda Stereo is one of the most influential and important Latin American bands of all time. Made up by the late, Gustavo Cerati (vocals, guitar), Héctor "Zeta" Bosio (bass), and Charly Alberti (drums), the band from Argentina was (and still is) all the rage in the '80s and '90s.
Sep7imo Día, which makes its debut on April 18 in Miami, Fla. and runs until April 22, counts with a cast of 36 artists, taking viewers through a visual tour of dazzling acrobatic and artistic paintings that combine physical prowess with moments of poetic beauty and the band's most iconic songs, such asDe Musica Ligera and Persiana Americana.
"This is a show about Soda Stereo. It’s not a tribute to Gustavo [Cerati] or a tribute to rock en español. It’s a show about Soda Stereo, the same way Cirque de Soleil did a show about Michael Jackson or The Beatles," Zeta said to Billboard, clarifying that the show is not a homage to the late singer/guitarist Gustavo who passed away in Sept. 2014. "They understand that the story of Soda Stereo, the way we broke barriers, the way we were the first really big rock en español band, that’s what is going to tell the story."
From someone who's obsessed with Soda and Cerati, this is a Cirque Du Soleil show you DO NOT want to miss.
Tickets for the Miami shows are available here.
