All-State Arena – Rosemont, IL
Written by: Julio Diaz
One of Mexico’s greatest musical ensembles was at the All-State Arena on May 2 to promote their awaited album Si Tu Te Vaz.
Los Temerarios returned to center stage after being away for three years. The legendary duo, made up of brothers Adolfo Angel and Gustago Angel, were given a warm Chicago welcome as they made their dramatic entrance when a set of stairs on stage were raised.
The concert was kicked off with “Loco Por Ti” from their new album titled “Si Tu Te Vaz” followed by two and a half hours of Los Temerarios’ greatest hits. The crowd cheared and screamed at the beginning of every song to let the duo know the song was well known. Some of the ballads the audience sang along to, were “A Quien Quieres Enganar” and “Si Quiero Volver” and “Te Quiero.” Cumbias such as Una Miradita took everyone back in time to the 90s where they had a chart topping song after another. And their heart wrenching rancheras like “La Botella Envenenada” had the crowd with their glasses raised in a toast.

Celebrating 31 years in the music business, their new album has already received raved revues across the Latin American community and already winning album of the year at this year’s Billboard’s Latin Music awards. “Si Tu Te Vaz” is the group’s 19th album and it captures the essence of who Los Temerarios are with sounds that transcend borders around the world. Their sound continues to be heavy in emotion, love and heart-ache. And it does not hurt to have a singer like Gustavo Angel sing the songs with such passion on stage.
The duo is from the state of Zacatecas, Mexico and began their music career in 1978 as Conjunto La Brisa; they later changed their name to Los Temerarios. They were the first Mexican band to ever play at Radio City Music Hall in New York and the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico. And aside from winning dozens of awards throughout their long music career, they have shared the stage with icons such as Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson.
