On Tuesday, Páez kicked off the “El Amor 30 Años After Love Tour” in Buenos Aires on Tuesday, commemorating the 30th anniversary of Rosario’s best-selling and iconic album, with recitals in Argentina, the United States, Venezuela, Spain, Uruguay and Chile.

“It’s been 30 years already. After recording three albums in a year, another one will be fun, so we just announced it and a barbaric quilombo was assembled,” Paez said to the amazement of thousands of fans who came to the Movistar Arena in Buenos Aires.

El Amor Tras del Amor, first recorded in 1992, was the album that set him on fire as a musician and made Argentine rock famous.

A new version of this album in 30 years is “an unattractive reality” considering “how quickly time passes” for Páez.

“All the feelings associated with this album were and remain very beautiful. It occurred to me to re-record it all again, edit it, put the same elements in different places and invite other guests, ”the artist said in the middle of this year.

The list of guests of that time, according to Paez himself, “was a miracle”: Mercedes Sosa, Charlie Garcia, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Andres Calamaro and Gustavo Cerati, as well as other prestigious musicians who participated in this album.

Returning to the stage, the composer made the stadium vibrate with the song “Tumbas de la Gloria”, dedicated to his closest relatives, who were directly related to the artist’s life.
