For the first time in six years, Argentina-based reggae-rock sextet Los Pericos will perform at Tampa, The Orpheum, on Saturday, March 12.
General Admission tickets to see Los Pericos at Orpheum are now on sale in tiers, with the current tier being $ 60 per ticket. On the day of the show, all that remains will be $ 75.
What is unknown, however, is which version of the Orpheum the show might take place in. Yesterday, the venue announced it would be leaving Ybor City after 20 years in the neighborhood. The owners have promised to reopen elsewhere, but details on the timing and location are unknown.
Los Pericos sold stages in South America and even recorded a reggae version of “Darkness” from The Police with Stewart Copeland in 1997. Most notably, the guys introduced Anthony Bourdain to street foods, including choripán, in his program “No Reservations”. in 2007.
This time around, no new music is being promoted, but Los Pericos just marked the milestone of being a band for 35 years, so if anything, you can consider it an anniversary.
