Tom Tancredo and his band to star at Arizona immigration rally: Kenny Be's Fotochop Friday
While many of America's celebrities announce their Arizona boycott plans, Colorado's most famous performer is preparing a big show of support. Inspired by the new immigration law passed by the Arizona state legislature, Tom Tancredo is getting the band back together.
The ¡Adios Amigos! Tour kicks off at the Dick Wadhams-Wendy Evans Memorial Day Weekend Wedding before Los Tancredos move on to promote their new album, pictured above, at the Phoenix Rising Rally held on the Arizona state capitol steps on June 5, 2010.
The back cover of the¡Adios Amigos! album lists old hits and a few delightful new ditties...
Los Tancredos have dedicated the ¡Adios Amigos! album to Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce, author of the bold new immigration law. Each track features the familiar brassy Tancredo campaign chorus. "La Cucaracha," the traditional Spanish folk corrido, has been rewritten to ridicule liberal critics of the new immigration law as drunkards and dope fiends who only live for their daily weed.
