Due to popular demand for the Brazilian artist, the two-night “Sergio Mendes: A Valentine’s Day” concert will now be held at Solaire’s Grand Ballroom on Feb. 14 and Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. The pillarless venue of the integrated resort has also been the venue for other international acts such as Dionne Warwick, Rick Astley, and Stevie Wonder.
Sergio Mendes, whose influence in the music industry spans five decades, is known to have propelled Brazilian music into the international scene. His Brasil 66 became the first album to be sung entirely in Portuguese that reached the top five of the famous Billboard magazine with “Mas Que Nada” as its flag bearer single. He has expanded his reach by venturing into other genres and collaborating with new-age artists like the Black Eyed Peas front man Will.i.am, Justin Timberlake, and John Legend. He has extended his expertise for the successful animated film Rio and its sequel, Rio 2.
