Concert Scheduled Oct. 23 at The Mahaffey Theater
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Aug. 15, 2013) – A perennial chart presence since the early ‘90s, Grammy® Award nominated Mexican pop star and sex symbol Cristian Castro will perform at The Mahaffey Theater Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets start at $29 and will go on sale Thursday, Aug. 29 at noon.
Castro is the son of renowned actress and singer Veronica Castro and comedian Manual Valdes and started as a child actor appearing alongside his mother on the telenovela El Derecho de Nacer.
Eleven years later, he branched out with the release of his first album, Agua Nueva. His career was launched a year later with the song, “Nunca Voy a Olidarte” (“I Will Never Forget You”) which became a No. 1 hit on the Hot Latin Tracks chart. Touring catapulted him into the limelight and Castro became an instant teen idol and sex symbol.
Castro was nominated for Pop New Artist of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Awards (best of Latin music) in 1993 and Male Pop Artist of the Year in 1993. His biggest hit to date is “Amor Eterno,” a Hot Latin Tracks topper that cracked the Billboard Hot 100 climbing all the way to No. 78 despite its Spanish-language vocals.
He continues to record romantic love ballads in Spanish. Earlier this year Castro released a live album, Primera Fila, that features well-known favorites and original songs.
