FALL TOUR MARKS START OF LOS LOBOS'
YEAR-LONG 40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
In celebration of the August 21st release of the 20th anniversary edition of their seminal album Kiko, Los Lobos announced a North American tour with Neil Young & Crazy Horse, as well as a series of live Kiko concerts, where the band will perform the album in its entirety. Kicking off in October in Ontario, Canada, the Neil Young & Crazy Horse tour continues through late November and includes a performance at the famed Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Kiko Live is also being released on CD, DVD and a 2-disc Blu-ray/CD set from Shout! Factory on August 21. Kiko Live captures their February 24, 2006, performance at the House Of Blues in San Diego, CA, where the band performed the critically acclaimed release in its entirety, during a string of shows devoted to the album. Never before released or broadcast, Kiko Live also contains interviews with the band and others involved in the making of the studio album.
The Kiko 20th Anniversary Edition is newly remastered, and features bonus material including demo versions of album tracks and live recordings, and new liner notes written by Los Angeles journalist and longtime friend of the band, Luis Torres.
Starting in November 2012 and continuing through 2013, Los Lobos will celebrate 40 years together, a monumental achievement in a world where bands come and go in the blink of an eye. A rare example of longevity in a volatile music world that stresses style over substance, Los Lobos' lineup has remained uninterrupted since 1984, when Steve Berlin joined original members Louie Pérez, David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas, and Conrad Lozano, each of whom had been there since the beginning in 1973.
