Los Lobos To Appear At The Ordway On August 16


Los Lobos will be performing at the Ordway on August 16 as part of their 45th Anniversary Tour. Ever since Los Lobos broke through the international charts with their massive hit cover of Ritchie Valens “La Bamba,” their name has been synonymous with high-energy shows. The three-time Grammy Award-winners and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees are bringing a very special program to the Ordway, starting the night acoustically and finishing with a full electric set featuring familiar favorites as well as songs off their latest album, Gates of Gold. A night no Los Lobos fan will want to miss.

The dynamic songwriting, deeply poetic lyrics, thoughtful romantic and spiritual themes, and eclectic blend of styles on the Gates of Gold 11 track collection has resulted in an American saga in the rich literary tradition of legendary authors John Steinbeck and William Faulkner. Yet true to form, these typically humble musical wolves started in on the project without any grand vision or musical roadmap. Over 30 years after Los Lobos’ major label breakthrough How Will The Wolf Survive?—their 1984 album that ranks #30 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s—their main challenge when they get off the road and head back into the studio is, as Berlin says, “trying not to do stuff we’ve already done. To a certain extent, we are always drawing from the same multi-faceted paint box, and we sound like what we sound like. We’re proud of what we feel is an honest body of work. We just want to keep finding new ways to say things.”
