Bookies Uncover Bookimania at the Azteca

MEXICO CITY ( Associated Press) – More than a quarter of a century after their last concert, Los Bukis performed Bukimania Saturday night to more than 82,000 fans at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.

The Mexican Grupara music band, led by singer-songwriter Marco Antonio Solis, performed songs from throughout their career, leaving the stadium spellbound, which was filled when the great moment of “Tu Jail” arrived.

As they anticipated, they played songs by the group such as “Nescito Una Compañera” and “Tus Mentiras”, resisting the temptation to only include songs from Solís’ popular solo career, which were recently named Person of the Year 2022. Was recognized as Off the Year. Latin Recording Academy.

The concert began at approximately 9:45 pm when Solís, his brother Javier Solís, his cousin and Los Bucis founder Joel Solís, Roberto Guadarrama, José Guadarrama, Pedro Sánchez and Eusebio “Chivo” Cortés, came on stage in costume. An Aztec calendar on the chest with crystal embellishments, very fitting for the stadium he performed in.

“Thank you, dear producer, for this beautiful opportunity that you give us tonight and to all these people for being present, thank you, all the bookimania gathered here at the Azteca!” Marco Antonio Solis said at the beginning of the concert. “With so many things happening in our world, with this blessing…the invitation to party tonight is ours.”

Bukis performed songs such as “My Fantasy”, “And Now You’re Leaving”, “I Admit My Defeat”, “My Poor Heart”, and “My Greatest Need”, the last song being a reference to regional Mexican music. It was sung by star Ana Barbara, who was in the audience as shown by stadium cameras.

Solis also starred in the Ana Barbara and Los Buccis film “How Did I Fall in Love with You?” which was released in 1990 with performances by Solis, Lourdes Munguía and Luis Felipe Tovar.

Solis, finding him in the audience, told the director, “A big hug, we’ve invited him with his family, and he’s 81, my dear Sergio.” The musician was excited to see the director waving to him. “Oh my god, what a good memory.”

At some point during the night, Solis highlighted that parents, children and even grandchildren could be seen at the concert brought together by the music of Los Buccis. The singer told “the youth” what it was like to be romantic in the days of vinyl records.

He said, “The courtship of our girlfriends, how we won them over with the LP record… There we outlined the songs we wanted to dedicate to the girlfriends.” “And one of them will say to the girlfriend ‘there I tell you to hear that’, it sounds corny but it worked, thanks to that formula all the young people are here tonight,” he added in “Good Luck Thief”. Happily Paired Before Interpreting, a song she thanked the public for popularizing it, was not one of her singles.

Los Bucis also dedicated some songs to the memory of the deceased, their cumbia “Viva el Amor” and “Navidad Sin Ti”, the second performed before closing the concert with fireworks.

“We want to toast three important things: health, love and the present,” Solis said as he raised a glass on stage during the concert.

In 2021 Los Bukis announced the “A Sung Story” tour with their first concerts in the United States, including stops in Inglewood, California, Chicago and Dallas.

Solis had told The Associated Press that the pandemic sparked emotions and reflections in musicians that made them appreciate that “we are still alive in this world,” which is why they decided to go on tour.

Los Bucis was founded in the mid-1970s and experienced an explosion of popularity in the 1980s with their song “Tu Jail”. They broke up in 1996. She was nominated for a Grammy three times, including for Best Latin Pop Album for “Through Your Eyes”.
