Guatemalan singer-songwriter Ricardo Arjona is set to make what appears to be his Tampa Bay debut at the Yuengling Center on Thursday, June 2.

Tickets to see Ricardo Arjona (who some say predicted 9/11) have already gone on sale, and are priced starting at $56.26.

The last two years of the prolific performer's life have seen him indulge in 2020’s Blanco, and 2021’s Negro. The works have been referred to as Arjona’s magnum opus, and in February, he plans to release a combined CD set, containing both albums together, and a 216-page book that revolves around the origins of the album. Also included in Blanco y Negro Libro will be photos that span his entire life.

Arjona also has “Hecho a la Antigua,” an acoustic, live stream concert from 2021 up for Best Latin Pop Album at the Grammys this year. He hasn’t won anything in that—or any, category since 2007.
