Los Lobos Announces Summer Tour

Los Lobos on tour this summer- for the Grateful Web

Latin rock fans nationwide are in store for a special treat with this summer's The Brotherhood Tour.  Hosted by Los Lonely Boys who are joined by co-headliners Los Lobos, The Brotherhood Tour will stop in cities across the United States to bring that special Latin flavor for which they are both renowned.

Since they began as Los Lobos Del Este Los Angeles in 1973, Los Lobos has evolved into a respected artistic entity using eclectic musical molds built on the blues, rockabilly, jazz, Latin and their own Mexican-American heritage.  Critically acclaimed Los Lobos has thrived for more than three decades.  In that time, they have released over 15 albums, won the Best American/Mexican Grammy for Anselma in 1984, and in 1987 their cover of "La Bamba" shot straight to #1 on the Billboard Singles chart where it remained for three weeks.

In September 2006, Los Lobos released The Town and the City to much critical acclaim. The album's lyrics deal with vocalist/guitarist/drummer Louis Perez's childhood in East Los Angeles while the music portrays complex and original soundscapes. "Nearly three decades in, Los Lobos have yet to make a bad record," said the Chicago Reader and Rolling Stone Magazine asserts that, "With the exception of U2, no other band has stayed on top of its game as long as Los Lobos."

Since their worldwide breakout three years ago, Texican trio Los Lonely Boys - brothers Henry, JoJo and Ringo Garza - have achieved multi-platinum album sales, a Grammy Award (their monster hit "Heaven" won Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group in 2005), and widespread acclaim from critics, fans and other musicians.  In 2007, Los Lonely Boys participated in Amnesty International's "Make Some Noise" project. Their cover of John Lennon's "Whatever Gets You thru the Night" is the second single from the charity album Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur.  Look for The Boys' third album, Forgiven, to hit streets on July 1st.
