HOLLYWOOD, CA- Los Fabulosos Cadillacs boast an illustrious career that has spanned nearly four decades, and throughout this time, they’ve demonstrated an extraordinary ability to evolve, seamlessly incorporating diverse musical elements, including ska, rock, reggae, salsa, and cumbia.

Now, they’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of their iconic hit “Matador,” a song that stands as their most recognized and celebrated track. Their impact in the Latin American music scene is undeniable, establishing them as a formidable presence.

Their U.S. tour, “El León del Ritmo tour,” is now officially underway, and on September 24th, they graced the stage at the legendary Hollywood Bowl for the very first time, sharing this iconic venue with another renowned Argentine band, “Los Autenticos Decadentes.”

The evening started with a festive and dance-filled atmosphere by Los Autenticos Decadentes. Their setlist included some of the Latin American anthems that have been chorused in soccer stadiums, at festivals, and as declarations of love and devotion. Anthemic songs such as  ‘Loco’, ‘La guitarra’, ‘Un osito de peluche de Taiwán’, ‘Amor’, ‘No me importa el dinero’ y ‘Corazón’, had the crowd captivated that evening, setting the stage for Los Fabulosos Cadillacs to elevate the excitement to a whole new level.

There have been only a few instances when I’ve experienced concerts at the Hollywood Bowl compared to Latin American shows, where it’s a rarity to witness people sitting down. However, on this particular night, I was astounded to see most of the crowd standing up for the entire concert. Everyone was grooving!

The crowd could be heard collectively singing outloud “eyy ohh, eyy ohh” as they departed.
