12/06The “Tres Caballeros” Thank You!

And that, as they say, is that: The Tres Caballeros World Tour is now in the books. All we can say is THANK YOU to our fans around the world for making the impossible possible: An instrumental rock/fusion band doing an actual world tour. We’re extremely grateful to everyone – fans, booking agents, promoters, venues, folks in the press, you name it – who played a part in making this all work.


If you’d like to see some photos from the band at the airport just before the tour ended – and also some great shots from the tour-closing show at The Sanctuary Music & Events Center in McKinney, TX, USA – just go to our Facebook page by clicking right here. They’re the two most recent posts.

Or if you’re not a Facebook person, you can see the live shots by clicking right here (photos by Daniel Work for North Texas Live).

And, for the official record, here’s the complete itinerary of the entire world tour, listed below. Which one did you see and what do you remember? Feel free to comment on the Facebook tour-closing thread by clicking here, or on Twitter if that’s more your speed.

Once again, from us to you, thank you so very much, and happy holidays.

10/04Dallas, TX Show Just Added For November 29 – Last Show Of “Tres Caballeros” World Tour!

Hello everyone-

We’ve got a very special announcement to make. You see, we thought our “Tres Caballeros” world tour was going to end in South America in late November, but the scheduling gods have been kind to us, and we have the opportunity to do one more show back in the USA!

We’re going to wrap up the world tour in style at:

The Sanctuary Music & Events Center
in McKinney (Dallas), TX,
on Tuesday, November 29


It’s going to be a very special event, with a unique set list crafted just for this night. There will also be a band clinic on the same day, limited to 100 people only.

We’re very grateful to our friends at The Sanctuary for being up for this show on fairly short notice!

CLICK HERE for more info and to get tickets now.

This note is also is a great opportunity to thank everyone around the world who came to see us play over the past year and half!

Thank you so much – and we hope some of you are able to join us in Texas on November 29.

Cheers to all,
The Aristocrats



9/13BREAKING: India Tour Date Changes

UPDATE: BANGALORE SHOW now BACK ON for September 19 at Indirinagar Club, with additional tickets on sale right here:


All previous tickets from the September 14 date will be honored! Thank you for your patience.

Promoter’s post about this – click right here.


It’s been a wild day for us in India, so we’ll try and summarize it as best we can:

* We are very sorry to announce that the September 14 show in Bangalore has been cancelled due to a civil curfew imposed by the government. For full details on ticket refund issues (and a possible date change of the show!), please click here to see the promoter’s message on their Facebook page.

* On September 14 – basically TODAY – instead we will do a second/extra show in Mumbai at Hard Rock Cafe Mumbai! This was just announced hours ago, and the show will feature a special set list with material more from the first two albums. Tickets are on sale now at this link.



* We are working hard to try and do a Bangalore makeup show on September 19, in the same venue. Tickets from the September 14 show would obviously be honored. It’s not confirmed yet, but watch this space for details, or our Facebook page, or our web calendar page.

Thanks to everyone at The Humming Tree and Up Your Arts for going above and beyond to help us roll with all of these changes, and we hope to have more info soon on the September 19 makeup show!
