Soda Stereo's drummer Charly Alberti reveals new details about the upcoming Cirque du Soleil Soda Stereo show that has everybody talking.

Alberti and bassist Zeta Bosio are teaming up with the Canadian entertainment company to bring to life a spectacle currently called as "Soda Stereo imagined by Cirque du Soleil."  The show is expected to launch in 2017 in the band's native country in Argentina.

"This is a show about Soda Stereo. It’s not a tribute to Gustavo [Cerati] or a tribute to rock en español. It’s a show about Soda Stereo, the same way Cirque de Soleil did a show about Michael Jackson or the Beatles," he said to Billboard, clarifying that the show is not a homage to the late singer/guitarist Gustavo Cerati who passed away in Sept. 2014. "They understand that the story of Soda Stereo, the way we broke barriers, the way we were the first really big rock en español band, that’s what is going to tell the story."

The creative team from Cirque du Soleil will travel to Buenos Aires to visit the River Plate Stadium, venues where they have performed and places where they have rehearsed.  To better grasp the power of "Soda Mania," they will also talk to fans and travel around Latin America. 

"Once the idea of the show is worked out, Zeta and I will start working on the adaption of Soda songs for each one of the acts. The show is set to premiere in 2017. That seems like a long way off, but with everything we have to do, for us it’s like the day after tomorrow," he said.
