On October 10, 1961 they made their debut at the Florencio Sánchez theater, The Irate, surely the most important Uruguayan pop band in history. To celebrate those 60 years, Paysandú has been remembering its most famous children.
The festivities began yesterday, Sunday, with the music of Los Iracundos playing in the sanducero center, the discovery of a commemorative plaque and the projection of Un tal Eduardo, Aldo Garay’s film about the cult of Eduardo Franco, singer and songwriter of the band.
But today more tributes. Starting at 7:00 p.m. via streaming, the preview of the Los Iracundos show will be broadcast together with the José Debali Band, which will begin at 8:00 p.m. at the Florencio Sánchez theater. The sanduceros will be able to follow the show from a giant screen on the pedestrian street April 19.
The lineup for the occasion includes original drummer Juan Carlos Velázquez.
Los Iracundos began in 1958 as Los Blue Kings and in an instrumental rock format very fashionable in its time. As Los Iracundos they had a long career with international successes and films, building a legend that is still alive today.
