Last night Rancho Humilde, the record label leading the corridos tumbados movement, hosted one of the first largest concerts during the time of the Coronavirus (or COVID-19) pandemic. Rising Mexican-American acts like Fuerza Regida, Adriel Favela, and Mexican superstar Natanael Cano took over Chicago’s SeatGeek Stadium.
Chicago was the first stop on Rancho Humilde’s S.M.O. Tour that is highlighting the biggest and up-and-coming acts on their roster. In a lead-up to the show, the L.A. based label posted a video on Instagram showing the floor of SeatGeek Stadium with socially-distanced booths for the fans. The event flyer also promised that “masks and hand sanitizer will be provided.”
“Snoop Dogg Presents” was also listed on the flyer for the Chicago show, showing that the Long Beach rap legend is throwing his weight behind Rancho Humilde’s corridos tumbados. Other acts on the label that performed last night included Legado 7, Herencia de Patrones, Junior H, Arsenal Efectivo, Estaban Gabriel, and Ovi. The next shows of the tour are line-up for Midland, Texas on Sept. 18 and Piedmont, Okla. on Sept. 19.
