Los Temerarios Deliver a Nostalgic Performance in Chicago: “Appreciate All the Love”

Los Temerarios Bring Nostalgia-Packed Show to Allstate Arena, Chicago Despite Weather Warnings

Mexican band Los Temerarios made their return to Chicago after a two-year absence due to the pandemic, with a two-night sold-out concert at Allstate Arena, which can hold over 18,500 fans, last weekend. Despite the weather warnings of 90 mph winds on Friday (March 31), fans turned up to sing and dance along to the iconic songs of the popular grupero band, led by brothers Gustavo and Adolfo Ángel.

Gustavo, the lead singer, thanked fans for their presence despite the weather and expressed his gratitude for the love and support the city has shown them throughout the years, making reference to their first tour to the United States in 1985. Meanwhile, Adolfo, the keyboardist and co-founder of the band, was less talkative but equally emotional, expressing his appreciation to fans for embracing their music for decades.

The concert lasted over two hours, featuring all the popular ballads, cumbias, and pop songs that the band is known for, including “Enamorado de Ti,” “Tu Infame Engaño,” and “Te Hice Mal,” among others. Los Temerarios have always been known for their keyboard-heavy ballads, and they proved their endurance with a high-energy and dynamic performance that had Gustavo working the crowd with his jokes and quirky dance moves.

The return to the live scene for Los Temerarios coincides with their 40 years in music, which will be marked by a special edition vinyl album, La Colección, out in April. The vinyl will include ten brand new songs and will celebrate their 40-year trajectory in music.

Overall, the band has notched 41 entries on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, 17 of which are top 10 hits, including four No. 1s. According to Adolfo, staying relevant in the music industry is not easy, and the band feels fortunate to have such a loyal fan base. Los Temerarios continue their tour in states such as Nebraska, North Carolina, and Georgia before wrapping up April 22 in Missouri.
