for love or for money

  What do Rage Against the Machine, the Spice Girls, and Soda Stereo have in common? They are all part of the so-called reunion epidemic, where bands of yesteryear are re-forming and re-touring in the name of music (and, er, money).

Much has been said about the recent burst of bands from the northern hemisphere that have somehow gotten over their differences (the very differences that, in some instances, split the band apart in the first place), felt that their music was suddenly relevant, or just straight up needed money. 

But apparently this trend knows no boundaries. Case in point: over the next couple of months, Soda Stereo, Los Gatos, and Vox Dei will all be playing reunion shows in Argentina.

According to Los Gatos’ press release,

“LOS GATOS vuelven a tocar porque es su deseo y se les antoja. Porque son amigos y verdaderos pioneros. Porque saben que harán feliz a mucha gente. Porque por un asunto de aspecto casi excepcional…. Se reúnen 40 años después para tocar para un público que los ama y jamás pensó que esto pudiera suceder… También para un público que nunca pudo verlos en Vivo… Y también para un público que no sabe aún de que se trata este linaje…”

They started their tour on June 23 in Rosario, but won’t be playing in Buenos Aires until August 23-25.

Vox Dei are pulling a Police, reuniting to celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary. You can see them at Teatro Coliseo on July 7.

And Soda Stereo? Their reunion tour is in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of their…”goodbye” (ie breakup) tour! You’ll want to get your tickets well before the October 19-21 and November 3-4 dates.

I’m crossing my fingers that Los Brujos will be next. Who would you like to see?–REBECCA

    […] certainly hasn’t helped the band’s newfound position as guilty pleasure, and I totally called the reunion a few days ago on soy so lindo. Needless tosay, I’ve already registered to get tickets. […]
