It’s official: RBD is reuniting again! Today (Dec. 19), the Mexican pop group announced the date for their reunion that will be taking place next year.
This past year, the RBD nostalgia has been at an all-time high. Back in June, Anahí performed “Sálvame” with Karol G in Mexico City. Dulce María joined the 2000s Pop Tour later on in Mexico and performed many of RBD’s hits. Bad Bunny also name-checked RBD in his smash hit “Me Porto Bonito” from his blockbuster album Un Verano Sin Ti.
Throughout the year, there were also multiple sightings of the band members together. Back in Oct., Anahí, Christian Chávez, and Christopher von Uckermann were guests at Maite Perroni’s wedding. Anahí led the group in an impromptu performance of “Sálvame” during the after-party. Then five of the six members, including Dulce María, met up last month for a special dinner. Now it’s been revealed that the members were planning their reunion as RBD in 2023.
The RBD reunion was first hinted at over the weekend when Anahí, Chávez, Perroni, von Uckermann, and Dulce María’s profile images on Instagram were removed. Now, all five members’ profile images have been changed to the classic RBD logo. They have also archived all their previous posts and left a video to hype up the reunion. In the nostalgic video, scenes from Rebelde are shown with clips from the five members’ dinner together.
RBD will be reuniting on Jan. 19, 2023. On the website SoyRebelde.World, a countdown clock is shown leading up to that date. There’s also a message that reads: “Prepare your tie.” Though information is scant on the moment about the reunion, Infobae is reporting that it will include a world tour titled Soy Rebelde.
Alfonso “Poncho” Herrera will be the only member not returning for the reunion. In a conversation with Remezcla earlier this year, when asked about a future RBD project, Herrera said that moment had passed. “There’s a new generation now,” he said, referring to the cast of Netflix’s Rebelde reboot. “So it’s logical; life goes on.”
