Bobby Pulido will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his music career with a live virtual concert from Mexico City and fans can enjoy it in the front row from the comfort of home.
The concert will be Pulido’s return to the stage with his full band for the first time since before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and fans will be able to help choose a part of the setlist by voting for songs at the singer’s official Facebook page.
“We’re going to do the hits but there’s also a lot of stuff like cover songs and stuff like that we’re allowing the people to vote to see what they want to hear,” Pulido tells Tejano Nation. “We’re going to basically do, whichever wins with the vote, that’s what we’re going to do.”
Pulido began his career recording a duet with his father, Tejano music legend Roberto Pulido. The song, “Contigo,” was a hit and led Bobby away from his college studies as a lawyer.
“I always liked music,” he said. “I always liked to sing but it was never something that I held my hopes for having to be a singer. I always wanted to do something else.”
The 47-year-old singer debuted on the music scene in 1995 released his debut album, Desvelado. The album peaked at number nine on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart and at number three on the Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart. It was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for shipments of 100,000 units. The title track launched Pulido as a popular Tejano artist recording many hit songs from more than a dozen successful albums over his 25-year career.
“It’s been a ride,” he added. “There’s been highs and there’s been lows, like life. There’s been more highs than lows that’s for sure but it’s always a rollercoaster. It’s been a learning experience and it’s nice to say I’ve been here that long. I’d never thought I would do that.”
Pulido will also debut his new song “Llórame” during the performance that will take place in a studio from the capital of Mexico. In addition to watching the concert, fans can connect via ZOOM to interact during the event.
The live virtual concert takes place on Friday, Oct. 30, via eConcerts streaming platform at 9 p.m. CT. Tickets for this pay-per-view event can be purchased at eConcerts.tv.
