Laura Pausini, The Undisputed Queen of Romantic Pop, Delighted Costa Rica

(CONFIDENTIAL) The first time Amores Extraños was heard in the country was in 1994, when Laura Pausini released her first Spanish-language album, Laura Pausini, a compilation of ten adapted versions of hits from her previous albums. The record became the best-selling album of 1994 in Spain.

The album was successful in Latin America too, being certified platinum by the Argentine Chamber of Phonograms and Videograms Producers, the Asociación Colombiana de Productores de Fonogramas and the Chilean division of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. Moreover, the first four singles from the album, “La soledad”, “Se fue”, “Amores Extraños” and “Gente”, entered the top 30 on the Hot Latin Songs chart compiled by Billboard. Thanks to these results, Billboard ranked Pausini the second female revelation of 1994, after Mariah Carey.

Saturday night, following the opening by Andres Carranza, who perfomed four original songs, at 8:00pm sharp the stadium lights dimmed and the sound of a heartbeat filled the open space. The screends showed a video, setting the tone for the evening.

“Tonight we are not alone,” said the voice with an Italian accent and the entire lower floor of the stadium stood up.

Laura Pausini came on stage.

The San Jose show is part of the Pausini Stadi Tour 2016 or Simili Tour, part of 17 Europe and 23 America dates, that began on May 25, 2016 and ending on October 25, 2016 in Munich, Germany.

In the Americas, Pausini opened her tour in Brampton (Ontario, Canada) on July 26, working her way down to New York City, Miami and Los Angeles, before hitting for five Mexico cities (Monterrey, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Queretao City and Puebla), ahead of San Jose (Costa Rica) on Saturday night.
