British quartet Arctic Monkeys and The Breeders were among the stars who got the biggest welcome at the 4th Corona Capital Festival, which attracted 80,000 fans in the Mexican capital.
For more than 12 hours without interruption, the music never stopped on one or another of the four stages set up at the Hermanos Rodiriguez Autodrome, home of the festival that has become one of the must-see events on the nation’s musical panorama.
The Breeders’ performance brought down the curtain on one of the concerts most looked forward to on the second day of the festival.
Kim Deal, back for the first time since his appearance in 2010 with his old Pixies group, dusted off the classic “Last Splash” from the 1990s when they gained fame with songs like “Cannonball,” which became the theme song of a generation.
Arctic Monkeys, led by fireball Alex Turner, was on hand with one of the most keenly awaited concerts of the festival.
While the Brits used the date in Mexico to debut their fifth disc, “AM,” the band did not forget to please fans from the days of “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not” with songs like “I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor” and “Dancing Shoes.”
