The American rock band are bringing their blended style back to Dublin after two decades
After nearly 21 years, Los Lobos are returning to Dublin to play a headline show at Vicar Street on Sunday, May 24.
The American rock band got their start in 1973, playing their own versions of Mexican folk music at restaurants and parties. Their sound evolved through the 1980s as they entered the punk and college rock scenes.
The group won a Grammy for Best Mexican-American Performance for 'Anselma' from its 1983 EP …And a Time to Dance. The following year, they released their full-length debut How Will the Wolf Survive? which earned the group a tie with Bruce Springsteen for Rolling Stone’s Artist of the Year.
Los Lobos create a lasting impact with their blend of styles ranging from jarocho and folk to R&B and rock ‘n roll, embodying the idea of America as a cultural melting pot.
The group are excited to make its long overdue reappearance.
“We can’t wait to get back and play at Vicar Street,” says band member David Hidalgo. “Playing live is what we do best!”
Tickets are €38.00 and will be on sale at 9am on Friday, February 7.
