Los Lobos Sign On to Support Eric Clapton
Grammy Award winning band Los Lobos will be joining fellow troubadour and music legend Eric Clapton in his upcoming North American trek set to open in February 2011. Los Lobos will be providing support for Clapton in the latter’s shows in the west coast and in Vancouver.
Los Lobos and Clapton have gone along way. Apart from being musical contemporaries, Los Lobos front men David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas both took part in the Crossroads Guitar Festival organized by Clapton. Hidalgo and Rosas have appeared in the festival’s 2004 and 2007 shows.
Los Lobos is best known for their first studio release “How Will the Wolf Survive?”, which came out in 1984 and their cover of the Mexican song “La Bamba” which became their first number one hit.
But before becoming one of the most popular Americana/Tex-Mex music acts in the ‘80s, the group has been performing for more than ten years in East Los Angeles. To date, the group has bagged several Grammy Award citations and nominations, the latest of which is a Best Rock Instrumental nod for the track “Do the Murray” and the Best Americana Album nomination for “Tin Can Trust” in the upcoming 2011 Grammy Awards.
