Background

After 16 years thrilling audiences around the world, the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club® is set to bid 'adios' with a farewell world tour in 2015, which includes this very special appearance at the Royal Opera House.

The group, which has been touring the globe in different forms and combinations since 1997, grew out of the release of the Grammy Award-winning best-selling album BuenaVista Social Club™, and its line-up continues to include a number of the original artists featured on the landmark recording and film. The Adios Tour represents the distillation of more than a thousand shows over 16 years involving more than forty musicians. During that time the group has evolved into a customised, dynamic, multi-generational big band in which veterans and younger performers have combined to celebrate Cuban musical tradition with flair and élan.
