Soda Stereo comeback a hit

November 6, 2007 |  4:25 pm

The signature Argentine rock group Soda Stereo is back, playing to sold-out stadiums in Latin America through December.

Parts of its first comeback concert, on Oct. 19, were posted on YouTube.

Soda Stereo, with a fanatical  following throughout the region and among Latinos in the United States, is scheduling a record sixth concert in Buenos Aires’ Monumental Stadium, breaking the Rolling Stones' record at the so-called River Plate venue, notes the Pagina/12 newspaper.

Since launching its comeback after a decade-long absence, the group has also played to packed stadiums in Santiago, Chile, and Guayaquil, Ecuador. Next up: four dates in Mexico starting Friday in Monterrey’s University Stadium, before a gig Nov. 21 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

News broke earlier this year that the acclaimed trio was patching up differences and performing anew.
