12 years after their last concert, Mexican pop outfit RBD is back to change the course of a challenging year with an exclusive virtual reunion. Anahí, Maite Perroni, Christian Chávez, and Christopher Von Uckermann announced the most anticipated reunion show of the last decade today via social media.
Former RBD members will gather for the virtual reunion event on December 26, which will kick off at 10 a.m. CST with a 6-hour marathon tribute to the ‘rebel generation’ prior to the live virtual reunion concert that will bring back the classics that defined entire generations.
During the 6-hour marathon, RBD fans can participate in the worldwide virtual event by submitting their videos and memories of the band to the site SerOPacer.world. Later, at 6pm CST, fans will be able to gain access the most anticipated reunion concert in years. Tickets for the live virtual concert will be on sale through the same site.
In addition to the live event, their live albums Generación RBD en Vivo, Live in Hollywood, Tour Celestial 2007, Hecho en España and Live In Brasilia will be available on October 1 as part of their music’s return to digital platforms.
The CD and DVD from their first tour, Tour Generación RBD En Vivo, was released on July 19, 2005 and was awarded a Platinum and Gold Record in Mexico, a Platinum Record in the United States, and a Gold Record in Spain. The DVD was recorded at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City and includes special versions of the classics like “Sálvame” and “Rebelde.” The Tour Generación RBD En Vivo was the fourth fastest-selling tour and more than 4.7 million fans in Mexico attended.
Live In Hollywood is RBD’s second live album, recorded during their first concert in Los Angeles at the Pantages Theater as part of their 2006 Tour Generación. This album was awarded Double Platinum in the United States and a Gold Record in Mexico. During their US tour, RBD performed before 65,000 people at the Los Angeles Coliseum, selling out tickets in 30 minutes and becoming the second concert to generate the highest income in the history of the venue (only behind The Rolling Stones). The group sold out every date of their US tour, from Madison Square Garden in New York to the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
RBD later released the album Tour Celestial 2007 Hecho en España, recorded at the Vicente Calderón Stadium in Madrid, in front of over 40,000 spectators. Live in Brasilia was recorded before half a million fans at the Explanada de los Ministerios in the midst of the celebration for the anniversary of the city of Brasilia, an event which they were personally invited to by the current president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
