Note: Please be advised that the Paquita la del Barrio concert originally scheduled for Jan. 23 has been rescheduled to June 4. Tickets that have already been purchased for the show will be valid for the new date. Ticket holders who are unable to attend the newly scheduled date can get a full refund at the original point of purchase.

Paquita la del Barrio is coming to Reno for a June 4 show at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino's Grande Exposition Hall.

Paquita la del Barrio became a celebrity after moving from her native Veracruz to Mexico City in 1970. Her live performance, mainly based on feminist songs with lyrics that are aggressive toward macho attitudes, seduced followers from all around the country. See why she remains legendary in Hispanic culture when she performs live at the Silver Legacy.

Paquita has been nominated for several awards include the Latin and American GRAMMYs and Billboard’s first “The Voice” award, given to an artist with extraordinary personality both on and off stage. And original she is, with a powerful voice, unique repertoire that nobody has dared to imitate, and an unmistakable presence.

Tickets cost $69.50 and $89.50 and can be purchased here or by calling 775-325-7401.
