The Mexican singer Gloria Trevi promised this Thursday “to make a catharsis and then a party” in the concerts of her tour of the United States “Isla Divina World Tour”, which starts in two days in Puerto Rico.
“It is a tour that comes after a pandemic, from a situation where what I felt is that I wanted to give people joy. All that confinement, all that depression, all that fear that we face, transform it into positive energy, into freedom,” Gloria Trevi said in a meeting with the media in San Juan.
Due to the pandemic, this project began with “a kind of apocalypse”, according to the interpreter of classics such as “With closed eyes”.
“I hope that our life stays like this forever after the concert,” she said about her presentation next Saturday at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico, the main entertainment venue on the island.
This tour, which covers more than 40 US cities, including Chicago, New York and Miami, comes after three simultaneous tours in recent months: “Isla Divina”, “Trevi Hits” and “Valientes” together with the Spanish Mónica Naranjo.
“Isla Divina for me is the most careful in terms of production, music,” said the singer, winner of five Lo Nuestro Awards and a Latin Billboard in 2009 for her song “Five Minutes.”
In the concerts she will sing from her best-known hits to her current evolution with her latest album “Isla Divina”, released at the end of last April after three years of musical silence.
Her followers can expect from the song with Karol G “Hijo E Puta” to “La recada” or the ballad “How to ask for forgiveness”, to classics like “With closed eyes”
“All wrapped up in a story that is the story we live in, the apocalypse of the pandemic and then wanting to make a new world, a magical and perfect world,” he explained. “All wrapped up in a story that is the story we live in, the apocalypse of the pandemic and then wanting to make a new world, a magical and perfect world,” he explained.
In her opinion, “that world exists in our hearts and if you can dream it, you can make it come true”, and that is what “Isla Divina” is about, finding “the paradise that we carry inside”.
Asked by Efe about the reasons for starting the tour in San Juan, Gloria Trevi assured that “it makes a lot of sense to start Isla Divina on Isla del Encanto (the name by which Puerto Rico is known).”
“For me it is a good place to take my sign of the cross (make the sign of the cross) and then continue throughout the United States, which is 44 cities,” she added.
Before her arrival in Puerto Rico, Trevi achieved a full house at her concert last weekend with Mónica Naranjo at the Starlite Catalana Occidente festival held in the city of Marbella (Spain).
It was a way to warm up engines for this tour. “What happened in Spain is going to fall short,” she underlined with a shout and a loud laugh.
“I come with a super-chopped crest, like when they itch the roosters’ crests so that they go out to fight. I come very excited, I really want the people of Puerto Rico to miss me a lot for the next one,” she commented. “I come with the Super-chopped crest, like when they poke the roosters’ crests so that they go out to fight.

As for her collaboration with Mónica Naranjo, she explained that they made the song “Grande” together, which is part of the album “Isla Divina”, but that due to the pandemic it could not be released in discos and parties.
“There was that commitment to sing this song together live,” said the Mexican, and acknowledged that it was “difficult” to select only the greatest hits of each of them but that at the same time it was “something unique.”
Gloria Trevi also spoke of future collaborations with Puerto Rican artists, although she did not name names as they are still projects. She advanced, however, between laughs, that some are “very romantic” and others “very bandits”.
She in Puerto Rico she also performs today at the final gala of the local Miss Universe pageant at the Santurce Fine Arts Center, in San Juan, where she will star in the musical opening.
About these contests, she said that “sometimes these types of events are underestimated” but that she considers that “beauty contests at this time are much more elaborate and special.”
