Photo gallery: Mana at American Airlines Center (June 30)
Enthusiastic and adoring fans sang the words to every song.
After a four year hiatus, the latin rock band Mana filled the American Airlines Center in Dallas Thursday night with loud, adoring fans, many of who sang the words to every song.
There is nothing quite like a show where the fans love the performers deeply and know all their material. The energy from the audience fills and drives the band. That adoration is exactly what happened Thursday at American Airlines Center. A crowd who had waited so long for their favored Mana to record again and perform live showed their appreciation and their passion for Mana.
Formed in Guadalajara, Jalisco, in 1978, Mana's rhythmic, pop rock sound has earned them three Grammy Awards, five Latin Grammy Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards, four Premios Juventud Awards, nine Billboard Latin Music Awards, and 13 Premios Lo Nuestro Awards.
Popular around the world, Mana was founded by lead singer Jose Fernando "Fher" Olvera and is joined by Gustavo Orozco on guitar, Abraham Calleros on drums, and brothers Juan Calleros on bass and Ulises on guitar. The band debuted their long awaited album "Drama y Luz" in April this year and immediately saw the single "Lluvia al Corazon" climb to the top of the radio charts throughout Latin America.
During their sold out show they played:
Lluvia al Corazón
Oye Mi Amor
De Pies A Cabeza
Eres Mi Religión
Vuela Libre Paloma
Rayando El Sol
Te Lloré Un Río
Se Me Olvidó Otra Vez
Si No Te Hubieras Ido
Ojala Pudiera Borrarte
Vivir Sin Aire
Como Te Deseo
Clavado en un Bar
En El Muelle De San Blás
