Grammy winners Los Tigres del Norte come to Gammage


March 12, 2010

Heralded by the New York Times as “[Regional Mexican] music's greatest statesmen,” the legendary Los Tigres del Norte are set to perform at ASU Gammage. 

Widely known as the immigrant community’s leading voice on issues of the day, as well as stewards of the people’s traditions, Los Tigres Del Norte will give a one-night-only performance at ASU Gammage April 16. Tickets are on sale now.

Comprised of founding musical director, lead vocalist and accordionist Jorge Hernandez, along with his brothers Hernán, Eduardo, Luis and cousin Oscar Lara, Los Tigres del Norte have become the leading musical storytellers for multiple generations of Latin immigrants. The group has taken the century-old tradition of ‘corrido’ (story, song, celebrating the enduring pursuit of truth, justice and opportunity, whether by heroes or ordinary folk) to a new level as an art form. With a career span of more than four decades, millions of records sold, and extensive concert tours throughout the world, Los Tigres have become global ambassadors for Mexican and Mexican-American culture.

Having now won the "Best Norteño Album" Grammy Award the last four years in a row, Los Tigres Del Norte are currently touring in support of their latest chart-topping album “La Granja” (The Farm) – which is their 21st album to reach No. 1. Likewise, the album’s title track/first single recently reached No. 1 on both Billboard’s “Hot Latin Songs” and Regional Mexican Airplay charts – the latter of which saw the family group extend their record of 41 Top-10 hits during the chart’s 15-Year History.                                                           

Tickets are on sale now and range from $29 to $109 and are available at the ASU Gammage and Ticketmaster: 1-800-982-2787 or asugammage.com.
