Details are not in yet, but the both confirmed that they would stay with Menudo. The two members will be at the concert in Monterrey, Mexico coming this September 10.
Menudo reunions shook up last August when Johnny Lozada and Ricky Melendez left El Reencuentro due to irreconcilable differences over finances. To keep the love for Menudo going, the four members of El Reencuentro announced Robert Avellanet to replace the leaving members. El Reencuentro became five and continued performing. They joined forces with In Miami Productions and the idea for a Menudo convention became a reality. Fans from around the world showed up to see Menudo and MDO (various members). Along with them were Ex-Menudos Rawy Torres, Jonathon Montenegro, and Ashley Ruiz. This reunion concert held the name Menudomania Forever Tour, the first of the Menudomania tours.
