Los Tucanes de Tijuana return to the city after a ban of 13 years

Los Tucanes de Tijuana are coming back to the city where they were born, after an absence of 13 years. This was revealed in a press conference at the Municipal Hall where they stated that this norteño band from Tijuana will be performing live in Tijuana once again.

The group will take part in the celebrations of the 134th anniversary of Tijuana, which the members of the band confirmed. They met at the Municipal Hall in Tijuana in the afternoon of Monday, February 13 to officially reveal their return to Tijuana.

The band led by Mario Quintero, singer and accordionist, said that he was happy of being back in Tijuana, after 2008, when they were banned because their music was considered a glorification of violence and drug culture.

Mario Quintero stated that, during the group’s ban, officials had a wrong image of them, stating that they never bothered to meet them and find out who they truly are. On the other hand, he stated that he was happy of being able to return to Tijuana, the city where they were born, where they also hope to bring a lot of joy to all Tijuana natives.

Los Tucanes de Tijuana will be performing next July 8 at Estadio Caliente, as part of the celebrations of the city for its 134th anniversary.
