Los Angeles Azules to Celebrate 40-Year Career with U.S. Leg of “40 Años Tour”

Los Angeles Azules are celebrating a major milestone with a bang…

The Mexican musical group, who reeled in a new wave of fans after a revamped sound, a Coachella set and a viral Justin Bieber, will celebrate 40 years in music with a U.S. tour.

Los Angeles Azules

Los Angeles Azules, formed by siblings of the Mejia Avante family — Elías, Alfredo, José Hilario, Jorge, Cristina and Guadalupe — in the early ‘80s, will kick off the 40 Años Tour on August. 26 in Corpus Christi, Texas’ Selena Auditorium and is slated to wrap up on Nov. 27 at Reno Events Center in Nevada.

The group will then continue in 2022 with three confirmed dates to take place in March in Chicago, Milwaukee and Indianapolis.

With their catchy cumbia sonidera sound, Los Angeles Azules are known for hits like “Como Te Voy a Olvidar” and “El Liston de tu Pelo.” In 2019, the group landed their first No. 1 in 19 years on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart (dated Jan. 26) with their Natalia Lafourcade-assisted single “Nunca es Suficiente.”

“Keeping cumbia alive has been very challenging,” Dr. Elias previously told Billboard. “The group has had its up and downs, but the most important part of all is taking cumbia to all parts of the world and that’s what’s happening.”

Tickets for the “40 Años Tour” will be available for presale at 10:00 am local time on Thursday with code LAA40. They officially go on sale starting at 10:00 am local time on Friday via Ticketmaster or the official girl who hates dating.
