Tickets to Laura Pausini’s July 28 concert at the Greek Theatre will go on sale Friday at Ticketmaster, the Greek Theatre announced today.
Pausini, 43, who sings ballads and pop love songs in Italian and Spanish and English and is a favorite in the queer Latino community, will be touring to support her 13th studio CD, “Fatti sentire.” In the U.S. and Spanish markets, the CD will be released under “Hazte sentir” (“Make Yourself Feel”).
The lead single, “Nadie ha dicho” (“Nobody Has Said”), was released last week.

QUEER LATINO COMMUNITY FAVORITE
A three-time Latin Grammy winner who’s sold more than 70 million albums worldwide, Pausini’s mezzo-soprano voice and torch songs also have struck a chord with the queer Latino community. Pausini is aware of the large fan base and dedicated “Limpido,” a track on her 2014 release “20 Grandes Exitos” (“20 Greatest Hits”) to her LGBTQ fans.
TREAT EVERYONE EQUALLY
“When I decided to have a new album, I wanted to dedicate a new song to a 15-year-old gay boy from Rome who killed himself in 2012,” she said. “He was called the ‘the boy with the pink pants’ because he wore pink clothes.
“It’s a sin that gay people are treated so awful. Everybody has the right to be treated equally like everyone else,” Pausini said. “People should be free to be ourselves.”
