After a brief West Coast tour, iconic and soulful Spaniard Enrique Bunbury touched down at the Congress Theater for a six-encore performance. The Chicago Sun-Times notes that the set list centered around Bunbury’s 2011 release Licenciado cantinas, while also featuring songs from earlier Bunbury solo efforts. The track “No me llames carino” from 2004‘s El viaje a ninguna parte, found Bunbury rolling magic talismans around the Congress stage.
A fixture in the international rock scene ever since his mid-90s success with the band Héroes del Silencio, the 45-year-old Bunbury has performed as a solo act since Héroes’s break-up in 1996. He was accompanied at the Congress Theater by the four-piece Los Santos Inocentes.
