Los Tigres del Norte are icons in Latin music and they’re coming to Dodge City.
The band plays at United Wireless Arena on April 28 at 9 p.m.
Los Tigres del Norte has sold more than 37 albums worldwide, including 22 No. 1 albums and 50 No. 1 singles. The regional Mexican genre-band has won six Grammy awards and six Latin Grammy awards. Regional Mexican accounts for more than half of all music sales in Latin music.
"The most influential regional Mexican group in the United States," Billboard magazine said of the group. "Instead, they’re widely viewed as the voice if the people."
The New York Times went even further.
"Latin music’s greatest statesmen are Los Tigres del Norte," the newspaper said. "Los Tigres sell millions of records, regularly top Billboard’s Latin charts and draw tens of thousands of fans to stadiums.
"In short, they are among the most popular acts in Latin music today."
Los Tigres del Norte have recorded more than 500 songs and earned the Latin Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Despite playing for more than four decades, the band still performs regularly to audiences worldwide.
"This is indeed the voice of the people," National Public Radio said of the group. "There is no other band like Los Tigres in any language."
All Music Guide said. "Los Tigres del Norte should be compared to Bob Dylan, U2 or the Clash."
