Caifanes TicketsIn 1987, five rockers came together in Mexico City to form Caifanes, a band that would change the face of Mexican rock history. Members Saul Hernandez, Alejandro Marcovich, Sabor Romo, Alfonso Andre and Diego Herrera played their first official show on April 11, 1987, as one of many groups performing in Rockotitlán, Mexico City's biggest rock festival. Caifanes took the stage in Auditorio Nacional, a stadium that seats 10,000. After performing to a sold-out crowd, it went on to get its big break when RCA Ariola asked it to come open for Argentenian rock musician Miguel Mateos. Mateos' producer would eventually become its, helping it to produce its first studio album, the self-titled Caifanes, which went on to sell 300,000 copies in the first month alone.
Breakup and ReunionFrom 1988 to 1994, Caifanes continued to gain recognition and popularity, both in its native Mexico and throughout Latin America and the United States. In fact, the band was so successful it even opened for the Rolling Stones in Mexico City in 1994. However, in 1995, lead singer Saul Hernandez and lead guitarist Alejandro Marcovic had irreconcilable differences that led to the band breaking up. Fifteen years later, it would reunite for Vive Latino 2010, a popular music festival, and Coachella in 2011. Hernandez and Marcovich healed the rift between the members, and the band's reunion became permanent. It has continued to tour ever since, and in 2019 announced it will be releasing their fifth studio album soon, much to the delight of its fans.
