Since the end of March there had been announcements on KANW about Al Hurricane’s Farewell Tour.
However, in early April, The Godfather of New Mexico music, Al Hurricane, officially announced on his Facebook that he was bidding farewell to live performances.
Al Hurricane and Al Hurricane, Jr. performed the first of their farewell concerts at San Felipe Casino on April 11. The final concert on this Farewell Tour is planned for May 9th at the Sagebrush Convention Center, in Taos.
If you have not had the pleasure of being in the crowd of an Al Hurricane or Al Hurricane, Jr. concert, then it is highly recommend that you catch this final performance in Taos.
Al Hurricane is a major part of the heritage of New Mexico music, and his recordings will continue to play in New Mexican homes and fiestas for years to come. We here at Heaven Sent Gaming wish Al and Al Jr. the best, and I think we speak for all New Mexicans when we say, thank you for all the music you’ve filled our lives with, in both memory and for the future.
Stay tuned to our website to see for future updates and shows on Al Hurricane’s Farewell Tour.
