UPDATED: Nov. 22, 2019 — When they perform at the Majestic Theatre Nov. 27, super group Intocable WILL bring along their latest Latin GRAMMY win for Best Norteño Album. (Just checked out the seat availability and it’s slim pickings for prime seating spots, but seats are still available and while I can’t make it due to my official job, my heart will be there!)
The Tejano Norteno powerhouse was set to perform in San Antonio Nov. 14 but then got word of their nomination for the Latin GRAMMY for Best Norteño Album for 2019’s Percepción, which they won.
Intocable was up against:
Por Más — Bronco
Las Canciones De La Abuela — Buyuchek
Mitad Y Mitad — Calibre 50
Percepción — Intocable
Amo — La Maquinaria Norteña
But Intocable did not forget their San Antonio fans and rescheduled at the Majestic Theater for Wed., Nov. 27, 2019. Get ticket info online. The group’s South Texas leg of their tour has them performing Nov. 15 at Selena Auditorium in Corpus Christi, Nov. 16 in Houston’s Arena Theatre, Nov. 22 at Pharr Events Center and Nov. 23 at the O.K. Corral in Fort Worth.
Stay tuned to TejanoBeat.com for more as the concert date gets closer.
And check out the GRAMMY-nominated Percepción, where Intocable experiments with new country/rock-tinged sounds while not straying too far from the fabulous formula that has made them the standout Tejano Norteno group of the industry: romantic lyrics, frontman Ricardo Munoz’ skillful vocal artistry, and the best band in the business.

UPDATE: Nov. 22, 2019 — Another interesting article popped up from Rolling Stone: “Latin Music Is Being Quarantined at the 2020 Grammys,” by Suzy Exposito, released Nov. 20, 2019, that talks about how Latin music is relegated to the lesser-known categories at next year’s GRAMMYS.
