Café Tacvba Annouces U.S. Tour

Café Tacvba is coming to a city near you this fall! Today (Aug. 14), the Mexican rock en español legends officially announced their upcoming U.S. tour. 

Produced by Live Nation, the tour is set for only six dates across the country in five different states. Their first show is scheduled for Oct. 14 in Miami, FL. The group will also stop in Orlando, Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, Raleigh, Wheatland, and will conclude in Porterville, CA, on Dec. 1.

As expected, fans are excited the emblematic group is touring the country. One fan took to social media to express excitement for the tour, writing in Spanish, “love should always feel like a song from café tacvba.” However, other fans were quick to the group to add additional stops in Texas, New Mexico, Illinois, Arizona, and other states. One fan wrote, “No Texas?? At all?” 

Café Tacvba is one of the leading bands in the rock en español genre with over 30 years under their belt. Their musical identity is heavily influenced by Mexico’s indigenous community, and their sound blends punk, electronic pop, and even produced a hip-hop beat for their song “Chilanga Banda.” 

During the past three decades, the group has won 10 Latin Grammys in the following categories: Best Rock Album, Best Long Form Video, Best Rock Song, and Best Alternative Album. 

At the 2009 Latin Grammys, the group won Record of the Year for their song “No Hay Nadie Como Tü,” which features Calle 13. In 2008, that same song peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs and No. 15 on the Billboard Latin Rhythm Airplay. In addition to their Latin GRAMMY wins, Cafe Tacvba took home the Grammy award for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album in 2004 for their album Cuatro Caminos

Citi card members will have premium access to presale tickets Aug. 15 to 17 through the Citi Entertainment program. The general sale starts this Friday, Aug. 18.
