Los Bukis Day declared in LA as legendary Mexican band announce 2022 US tour

LOS ANGELES (KABC) – The Los Angeles City Council officially declared on Tuesday to be The day of the Bukisor Los Bukis Day, in honor of one of Mexico’s most popular bands.

The statement came as the legendary band announced a 2022 US tour, including a concert scheduled for August 18 at the LA Memorial Coliseum.

Councilman Curren Price, whose district includes the Colosseum, distributed 2,000 Los Bukis commemorative t-shirts at his district office.

The band reunited in 2021 for the first time in more than two decades, then kicked off a tour in August with a sold-out show at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.

When the band announced the historic reunion, it brought deep, sweet nostalgia to generations of many Latino families, and a flood of social media videos of kids surprising their parents and grandparents with tickets to the show. .

At a celebratory event on Tuesday, lead singer Marco Antonio Solis spoke about when the band took the stage after so long.

“To see that moment and to feel that moment, the energy that went through there was a work of God as we keep saying,” he said.

Los Bukis became a huge hit in Mexico and much of Latin America beginning in the 1970s.

Their love songs are still played on the radio in Spanish, and the group – which formed in Michoacan, Mexico – remains a household name for generations of many immigrant families in the United States.

“Really, I’m very excited, like my colleagues,” said Pedro Sanchez, the band’s drummer. “It’s a blessing from God. Thanks to him, we still have good health.”

Los Bukis concluded Tuesday’s conference by celebrating several mothers just in time for Mother’s Day.

The band kicks off their newly announced tour in New Jersey before heading to Las Vegas.

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 6.
