In a festival known for its pop and rock, STAPLES Center got swept off its feet with a dazzling performance of cumbia sonidera at Reventón Super Estrella. Of the more than 15 thousand people in attendance, not many would disagree that Los Ángeles Azulés stole the show.
Los Ángeles Azules electrified the audience with songs like Entrega de amor, and El Listón de tu pelo. On the floor of the arena that hosts teams like the LA Kings and LA Lakers, concertgoers took over with a huge open sonidero dance. Los Ángeles Azulés were the only performers to leave the stage hearing chants for an encore. Unfortunately, because there were other performers that needed to go on, they were unable to give one.
But while cumbia sonidera may captivated audiences, rock en espanol didn't disappoint either. The concert opened up with Los Amantes de Lola, the 80s Mexican rockers, performing songs like Beber de tu sangre and La flor de Bagdad, only to be followed by Jorge Gonzalex and Los Prisoneros singing hits like Tren al sur and Estrechez de corazón.
The Spanish rock kept on rolling--Miguel Mateos took the stage next, to an audience that had almost completely arrived, followed by Zoé, Nek, and the Los Ángeles Azules. Molotov built on the energy that filled the audience following Los Ángeles Azules with songs like Gimme Tha Power, Frijolero¸ and the fan favorite Puto. Hombres G then took the stage, followed by Alex Lora and his band El Tri closing out the night.
Outside on the Reventón Tailgate Stage, numerous other artists also gave performances that were free to everybody at LA LIVE.
