Ah the 80’s. The non ironic mullet hair styles may have faded out of the Argentine limelight. Though we are talking three years ago in some circles — not thirty as with most of the world. Argentina, like most places, seems to be a sucker for nostalgia and has a line up of musical acts to back this sentiment up. Looking for an excuse to bust out the hairspray and acid washed jeans? Look no further:
The former ‘The Police’ member comes back to Buenos Aires to present his latest album, 57th & 9th, the first pop-rock record in over a decade. The Englishman
in New York will play the newer songs alongside beloved classics and will be joined on stage by his longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, Josh Freese on the drums and Rufus Miller on the second guitar. His visit is part of the South American leg of the ’57th & 9th’ tour, which also includes stops in Santiago, Sao Paulo and Mexico DF.

The American rock band from New Jersey with over 34 years on the road, 19 studio albums and more than 150 million copies sold worldwide makes its glorious return to Buenos Aires on September 16th. This is the sixth time they’re coming and tickets went on sale a few days ago. My suggestion is hurry up if you want the best tickets. The latest album, ‘This House Is Not For Sale,’ debuted on number one worldwide, and became the biggest debut since 2013’s ‘What About Now,’ their third multi-platinum record.

(Personal) Jesus! After a 9-year hiatus, the English trio Dave Gaghan, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher are bringing their Global Spirit Tour to South America. After a massive tour across North America and Europe, the electronic band formed in 1980, perhaps one of the most influential of all times, will kick off the Latin American leg next year, starting in Mexico DF on March 11th and a Buenos Aires stop on March 24th. Their latest record, ‘Spirit,’ has been acclaimed around the world by both fans and critics, and was even called ‘the best Depeche Mode album in years’ by MOJO magazine.
