SIOUX FALLS, S.D., April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sioux Falls has always been an off-the-beaten-path destination for musical acts for decades. In a rare moment for the community, Sioux Falls will host an internationally acclaimed act to make this year's Cinco de Mayo celebration one of the biggest in the country!
Badlands Entertainment Group and Badlands Pawn is bringing the six-time Grammy award-winning Latin super group Los Tigres del Norte to Sioux Falls for a truly once in a lifetime Cinco de Mayo celebration.
"I've had this band on my radar for years and can't believe we're finally getting them to come play at the Badlands," said Badlands CEO Chuck Brennan. "This is really going to be the biggest Cinco de Mayo party the region has ever seen."
Los Tigres del Norte has been active since 1968 when the members were all in their teens. 32 million records later, the band and its public have turned its norteño style of music into an international genre. Their popularity comes as no surprise given their talent for portraying real life in a manner that strikes a chord with people across the Americas. Many of their most popular songs are tales about life, love, and the struggle to survive in an imperfect world. If you're one of the lucky ones to have tickets to this event you'll hear songs about love and betrayal, narcos, immigration, and life in rural Mexico.
The band is one of those rare groups that are wholly dedicated to their fan base, and it's not uncommon for them to play for hours on end. In fact, in October 2009 Los Tigres del Norte held a concert in Guadalupe that lasted 12 hours, breaking their record of 9 hours from the previous year!
Sioux Falls' Hispanic population is a cherished and vital part of the community, and an event of this magnitude will no doubt bring everyone closer together for one night of spicy Mexican reverie. So get your boots polished, your dresses and guayaberas ironed, and your sombreros ready – it's going to be a Cinco de Mayo at Badlands Pawn that Sioux Falls will be talking about for months to come!
"The city of Sioux Falls is so proud to host this level of diverse entertainment, especially on this historic Mexican Holiday. Cities the size of Los Angeles would love to have Los Tigres del Norte on Cinco de Mayo and leave it to Chuck to steal their thunder!" expressed long time city commissioner Kenny Anderson.
Cinco de Mayo at Badlands Pawn will kick off at 5:30pm with an outdoor pre-party open to the public with tacos, margaritas, mariachi music, and half-priced cervezas. The venue will open at 7:30pm to keep the celebration going. Tickets start at $50 for general admission with VIP, meet and greets, and suites also available.
