Los Tigres del Norte the Norteño group from Mexico, based in California are making their long-awaited UK debut at London's Evenitm Apollo in April 2024. The group is centred on lead vocalist Jorge Hernández, joined by his brothers Hernán, Eduardo and Luis, and cousin Oscar Lara. Since the late 1950s this family band has detailed the struggles and triumphs, romances and heartbreak of working people, families, immigrants, outlaws and farmers. Over more than 70 albums, they have infused Norteño, an accordion-based polka music indigenous to Northern Mexico, with boleros, cumbias, rock, and waltzes.
The band is the only Mexican group to win 7 Grammy awards and 12 Latin Grammys. In addition, the band has made 40 films alongside the Almada brothers (Mario and Fernando) among other well-known Mexican actors.
