Adelitas Way heats up Cincinnati with Blacklite District, Gravel Switch, Lewi Kenwood and David Soale.
Since blasting onto the mainstream rock scene in 2006, Adelitas Way’s following has and continues to grow – and for good reason. With 6 studio albums under their belt and over 12 years of touring all over the world this “little” independent band from Las Vegas, Nevada has accumulated over 150 million streams of their songs and is clearly not done. That said, the chance to see the guys headline a show in Cincinnati (Believe it or not, tonight’s show was the band’s first-ever headline show in this great city) was not missed by a solid group of enthusiastic fans.
Tonight’s performance included a little bit of everything from Adelita’s Way including their latest single release “down for anything” along with mega hits “Notorious” and “Still Hungry”. Before launching into one of the bands bigger hits,” Alive” frontman Rick DeJesus took a moment to thank everyone for “Coming out and supporting live music and allowing us to live our dream. Rick continued, Adelita’s Way stands for love and positivity, that’s the message we want to spread through our music”. Lastly, he urged everyone to stay connected with the band on all social media platforms as the band has completed a bunch of new music and will be releasing it a little at a time so – Stay tuned for more great songs from Adelitas Way!
