Maná Makes History At The Forum, Breaking Kanye And Eagles' Records
Maná sold out a record-breaking SEVEN shows at the Forum, eclipsing both Kanye and The Eagles.
Mexican rock band Maná is legendary.
With 4 Grammys, 8 Latin Grammys, over 40 million albums sold worldwide, and more No. 1 hits on Billboard's “Hot Latin Songs” chart than any other band in history, Maná is widely considered the most successful Latin American band of all time.
The band, which has already set concert attendance records in Mexico, is now breaking records in the U.S., Kanye's and The Eagles' to be exact, selling out one of music's most iconic venues, the Forum, "a staggering seven times...the only act in history to achieve this feat," tweeted Rolling Stone.

The band already had two runs scheduled at the Forum as part of its "Rayando El Sol" tour when overwhelming demand required they add a seventh show, which they immediately sold out, beating both Kanye and The Eagles' 6-show records.

"Maná makes history today by becoming the first artist that will perform seven shows in one year at the ‘Fabulous’ Forum," said a spokesperson for the venue when the band sold out their seventh, record-breaking show. "The Forum is proud and honored to be the home to Maná’s historic run of shows."

"To me it’s like a dream," vocalist/guitarist Fher Olvera told the LA Times. "We’ve been working for 30 years to be able to do this."
"It’s unbelievable how many people have come to see us here: from L.A., from other cities and even from other countries. You have grandparents, fathers, kids, brothers and sisters, all coming together," says drummer Alex González.
"It shows what the power of music can do."
