After the great success in his debut on Portuguese stages, with concerts sold out, Johnny Hooker returns to the country for another passage that promises to be memorable.

Before that, on June 22, Johnny Hooker will head the poster of Arraial Lisboa Pride, in Terreiro do Paço, and, on June 23, of the Feast of São João da Casa do Vinho Verde in Porto.

The European tour, which will also be in London and Dublin, marks the end of the successful tour of his second album, “Coração”.

Edited in August of 2017, the album brought great tracks such as “Flutua” (with Liniker), “Corpo Fechado” (with Gaby Amarantos) and “Caetano Veloso”, among other successes that made this concert one of the most acclaimed new MPB. The tour toured 20 capitals of Brazil, took the artist to the stage of Rock in Rio and to presentations in Lisbon, Porto, Berlin, and Barcelona.

 

Hooker’s songs became known for being part of soundtracks for audiovisual works, such as the award-winning feature film “Tatuagem” by Hilton Lacerda, and TV Globo soap operas, “Geração Brasil”, “Babilônia” and “Segundo Sol”, and the series “Justiça” and “Os dias eram assim”.

Winner of the Brazilian Music Award for Best Singer, Johnny Hooker took the music market by surprise with his first solo album, “I’ll Make a Macumba to Tying You, Damn!”, Voted by Rolling Stone magazine as one of best records of the year.

In “Coração”, Johnny mixes samba, brega, frevo, guitarrada and axé, in a reaffirmation of the country’s identity, making a song that is admittedly northeastern, that defies gender, languages ​​and questions the very identity of Brazilian music. It is a concert to dance and to vibrate. It is a celebration of Brazilian and Latin music.
