Kumbia Kings Live 2.0: A Fiesta in Arena Monterrey
The Mexican-American cumbia group Kumbia Kings returned to the stage with their Live 2.0 tour, which stopped at the Arena Monterrey on January 22, 2022. The concert was a celebration of their hits, such as \"Shhh!!\", \"No Tengo Dinero\", \"AzÃºcar\" and \"Fuego\". The fans enjoyed a night of dancing, singing and nostalgia with the original members of the band, including A.B. Quintanilla, Cruz MartÃnez, Pee Wee and DJ Kane.
The concert was recorded for a DVD release, which will include behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the artists. The DVD will be available soon on online platforms and physical stores. The Live 2.0 tour will continue in other cities of Mexico and the United States, bringing the Kumbia Kings' unique fusion of cumbia, pop, hip hop and R&B to their loyal followers.
The Kumbia Kings were formed in 1999 by A.B. Quintanilla, the brother of the late singer Selena. They achieved international success with their albums Amor, Familia y Respeto (1999), Shhh!! (2001), 4 (2003) and Fuego (2004). They also collaborated with artists such as Juan Gabriel, ThalÃa, Vico C and Ozomatli. In 2006, the group split into two factions: Los Super Reyes, led by Cruz MartÃnez, and Kumbia All Starz, led by A.B. Quintanilla. In 2019, they reunited for a special performance at the Premios Juventud awards show.
The Kumbia Kings Live 2.0 tour has been a success since its launch in 2019, attracting thousands of fans who missed the band's energetic and catchy songs. The tour has visited several cities in Mexico, such as Mexico City, Guanajuato and Queretaro, as well as some places in the United States, such as Tucson, Fresno and Shawnee. The tour will resume on May 5, 2023, at the Haltom Theatre in Haltom City, Texas[^1^]. The tickets are available online and at the venues' box offices.
The Kumbia Kings have also announced that they are working on new music, which will be their first studio album in more than 10 years. The album is expected to be released later this year, and will feature collaborations with other artists and producers. The fans are eager to hear the new songs and see how the Kumbia Kings have evolved over time. The band has promised to deliver a fresh and innovative sound that will keep their essence of cumbia-pop fusion.
One of the highlights of the Kumbia Kings Live 2.0 tour was the participation of Chris PÃrez, the former husband of Selena and the lead guitarist of her band. PÃrez joined the Kumbia Kings on stage for some shows, playing his own songs as well as some of Selena's classics. PÃrez also collaborated with the Kumbia Kings on a new song called \"Metal\", which combines cumbia and rock elements. The song was released as a single in October 2021, and has received positive reviews from fans and critics[^1^].
Another surprise for the fans was the return of Pee Wee, one of the original singers of the Kumbia Kings, who left the group in 2006 to pursue a solo career. Pee Wee rejoined the band for some concerts, singing some of his most popular songs with them, such as \"Sabes a Chocolate\", \"Dime QuiÃn\" and \"Chiquilla\". Pee Wee also performed some of his solo hits, such as \"CumbayÃ\" and \"QuÃdate\". Pee Wee expressed his gratitude and happiness for being part of the Kumbia Kings again, and said that he felt like he was back home[^2^].
The Kumbia Kings Live 2.0 tour has been a remarkable comeback for the band, who have proven that they still have the talent, charisma and passion to make people dance and enjoy their music. The band has also shown that they have overcome their past conflicts and differences, and that they are united by their friendship and love for their fans. The Kumbia Kings have promised to keep working hard to deliver more music and more shows in the future, and to keep their legacy alive as one of the most influential and successful cumbia groups of all time. aa16f39245
