Los Auténticos Decadentes, one of the most loved and respected bands in Latin America, make their long awaited UK debut in an epic Noche de Carnaval. From Argentina, the group mixes ska with regional traditions like canzonetta, murga bands and cantina songs. Their first hit Veni Raquel set the tone for their irreverence and ironic humour. Many of their songs are classic anthems of the Argentine night: Corazón, Loco (Tu Forma de Ser), Entregá el Marrón, La Guitarra and El Murguero. Some have become so popular that football fans in different Latin American countries - and in Japan - sing them at games.
The band has recorded and released nine studio albums, two DVDs and two live albums. They have headlined the continent's biggest festivals such as Vive Latino de México, Rock al Parque de Colombia, Quilmes Rock de Argentina and played at Mexico's National Auditorium, the Caupolicán Theater in Santiago de Chile, the Royal Center in Bogotá and the Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires.
A huge night of celebration, and did we mention our empanadas?
