Relive the Selena Concert Experience with Los Chicos del 512 at the Union Colony Civic Center

LCD512-2021-A

Visit the Union Colony Civic Center for a concert celebrating the “Queen of Tejano Music,” with Selena tribute band Los Chicos del 512 at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24.

Featuring popular hits such as “Amor Prohibido,” “Como la Flor,” and “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom”, Los Chicos will transport the audience back to the height of Selena fame.

History of Los Chicos
Los Chicos began in 2014 with a simple purpose: to provide an authentic Selena experience and celebrate the music of this iconic performer. After halting performances due to COVID-19, Los Chicos are back on tour with two new band members. Previous performance highlights include performing for the Chicago Bulls and traveling to Okinawa, Japan in 2019 to perform for the U.S. Marines.
