Soda Stereo - De Musica Ligera (Gira me veras volver 2007) (DVDRip) [Dodecahedron]
Soda Stereo was an Argentine rock trio formed in 1982 consisting of guitarist and vocalist Gustavo Cerati, bassist Zeta Bosio and drummer Charly Alberti. The band established what would become the template for many other popular spanish-speaking pop and rock music groups: clever, often mysterious lyrics, pleasing musical arrangements and an elaborate and glamorous aesthetic image. The band has sold over 7 million copies across Latin America.
With the release of albums such as Signos, Doble Vida and Canción Animal, Soda Stereo became one of the most critically acclaimed Argentine rock bands, being the first one to tour through Latin America, and achieving a success that no other local rock band had achieved before.
In 1997, after a farewell tour through various countries and finally Argentina, they disbanded due to personal problems between the members and different artistic criteria. On September 20, Soda Stereo played their last show, in front of 75,000 people at the Estadio Monumental (or River Plate Stadium) in Buenos Aires.
During 2007, after 10 years of their dissolution, rumours stated that Soda Stereo would tour South America before the end of the year. A reunion tour was finally announced on June 9, 2007 as the "Me Verás Volver" tour ("You Will See Me Come Back", referring to lyrics on Doble Vida's "En la Ciudad de la Furia"). The tour started at the River Plate stadium on October 19, 2007, where they played "El Último Concierto" in 1997.
Me Verás Volver featured concerts in different countries of America. Initially, the band announced two concerts at River, but 90,000 tickets were sold in only 24 hours, and the band added one more show to the schedule, and after three days, the tickets for the first three shows were sold out, so they added another two more shows in Argentina to the tour. The expected amount of fans attending the five shows was more than 300,000, making Soda Stereo one of the most watched public events in the country.
22 shows were performed, all but two of them sold out. The schedule included one show in Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia and Panama; two shows in Peru's Estadio Nacional and in Chile's Estadio Nacional; three shows in the United States, one on The Home Depot Center (Los Angeles, California) and two in the American Airlines Arena (Miami, Florida); four in Mexico and six in Argentina, becoming the only band to play more than five times in the Estadio Monumental in a single tour. After the tour, the members of the band have continued with their individual careers.
