The Grammy-nominated flamenco/salsa group The Gipsy Kings will perform on Sept. 18 at the Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall, 510 E 10th Ave., Munhall.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. April 19 at 877-4-FLY-TIX, and Tickets will be $67.95-$77.95, with limited Gold Circle seating available at $97.95.

Venue presale begins at 10 a.m. April 18 with the passcode “MUSICHALL.”

“It has been 25 years since the Gipsy Kings captured the world’s imagination with their self-titled debut album — a record that became a genuine phenomenon, certified gold and platinum around the globe, introducing millions of listeners to a unique, irresistible blend of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms,” says promoter Drusky Entertainment. “Since then, the band has toured virtually non-stop, to the farthest-flung corners of the planet, and sold almost 20 million albums, all the while retaining the same line-up of virtuoso musicians.”

Their music also incorporates elements of Arabic music, reggae and jazz guitar reminiscent of French Gypsy master Django Reinhardt.

Their latest release is 2013’s “Savor Flamenco.” The group’s ninth studio album marked the first time the Kings produced themselves and wrote all of the material.

The group recently performed their version of “Volare” on an episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” Their rendition of “Hotel California” was included in the film “The Big Lebowski” and on the HBO series “Entourage.” The 2010 film “Toy Story 3” featured their version of the movie’s Randy Newman-penned theme, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
