I feel for all of you who planned ahead to come to these shows and who have been so patient as I took the time needed to figure out the best course of action with my doctors. Thankfully, I am so relieved and happy to share with you that I will be getting back on the road in June 2018 with my El Dorado World Tour in Europe, and the US, with Latin America dates to be announced soon.” This news release was post on her website on December 27, 2017.

There are many great concert tips at the Amway Center makes for a great night. Every seat at the Amway Center is a great seat. Each concert will have a different set-up depending on the singer or band. The best seat with great sound is around the soundboard (or called the mixer) near the back or middle of the house. Having a front row seat is great for photos but not good for sound. The sound off of the speakers tends give a lot of bass and the vocals are very faint. Select the best seats available at the time you purchase tickets. The cheap tickets tend to sell very fast.
Sometimes in the front of the Amway Center there is a Concert Fan Zone or Pre-Concert Party on Church Street in front of the Amway Center. Arrive early and party with the local radio station and other vendors. Some of these companies may give out give-a-away and other prizes. Plus, met other concertgoers that have the same interests and make new friends.
