Los Tigres del Norte Performs Nearly Sold-out Show at the Kauffman Center
More than 1,500 people attended Los Tigres del Norte
with special guests Making Movies at the Kauffman Center
On Sunday, April 14, 2019, more than 1,500 people attended the nearly sold-out Kauffman Center Presents Los Tigres del Norte performance.
Los Tigres del Norte have reinvented Mexican popular music with their modern take on traditional norteño, cumbia, bolero and rock music. The multiple Grammy award-winning band has sold 37 million records and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Making Movies, the Kansas City-based rock band who opened the show, blends Afro-Latino rhythms with psychedelic jams and rock ’n’ roll swagger.
In line with the Kauffman Center’s mission to bridge the gap between the arts and local communities and organizations, the Open Doors Community Tickets program provided free tickets to local nonprofit agencies including El Centro, Guadalupe Centers and Mattie Rhodes Center. The Consulate of Mexico in Kansas City also donated three traditional Mexican dresses for display as part of the Kauffman Center’s Live in the Lobby series.
Eduardo’s Pueblito food truck was parked outside the south entrance of the Kauffman Center for guests to enjoy traditional Mexican food before the show.
The Kauffman Center Presents series is proud to provide inclusive programming that represents people of all cultures and backgrounds. Through the Los Tigres del Norte and Making Movies performance, a diverse crowd of fresh new faces was able to experience the Kauffman Center, many for the first time.
