Roberto Tapia, one of the most popular performers in the Mexican Regional music genre, will return to the Chumash Casino Resort at 8 p.m. Friday, June 29.

The Latin star is known for his wide range of styles, performing everything from romantic ballads to controversial corridos. He also weaves fast-paced, high-energy songs into his concerts, which have helped him secure a loyal following among fans.

In 2013, Tapia performed his greatest hits in front of sold-out crowd at the casino. Since then, he has released new material and toured throughout North America.

The native of San Diego moved to Sinaloa, Mexico, when he was a young boy and later enrolled in Difocur, a prestigious music school, at the age of 11. After some coaxing from friends and family, he began performing in dance halls and receptions to gain experience in front of crowds.

At 17, he made his professional debut in Tijuana alongside El Lobito de Sinaloa.

His self-titled released album in August 2002 vaulted him to superstardom, and his popularity has grown during tours throughout Mexico, the United States and Latin America.

Tickets for the show are $45, $55 and $65, available at the casino or at
