After a couple of years of getting us hyped, Sép7imo Día – No Descansaré, the Cirque du Soleil show honoring Soda Stereo, opened on March 9 in Buenos Aires. And as it ends its run in Buenos Aires on May 14, the show will make its debut across Latin America, including Peru, Chile, and Colombia. And it’ll close off the year in Mexico. Starting in October, Sép7imo Día will premiere in Arena Monterrey. Then it’ll head to Guadalajara (Arena VFG) from November 8 to 18. The last performances will take place in Mexico City from November 28 to December 22.
Sép7imo Día – No Descansaré pays tribute to Soda Stereo’s work. Taking a deep dive into Soda Stereo’s work, former members Zeta Bosio and Charly Alberti pulled multitrack tapes and looked through live shows and outtakes. They then restored, remastered, and digitized everything before producing new versions of classics and some mashups. Soda’s music directly influenced the show’s plot.
“We invented a new world inspired by their songs and the relationship the group had with its audience,” Michael Laprise, the director and writer of the show, told Billboard. “We never had such a loud sound in Cirque. Generally, there are neighbors around the tent, so that limits us a lot. And in Vegas, there are older people, so it’s not convenient. But Soda Stereo was known for its loud music, and that’s how this should be. We have studio quality but with the rawness of being live.”
