Adelitas Way

Date: Saturday, September 23, 2017
Time: 8:00pm to 10:00pm
Location: Hugh Hardin Arena 4400 Midland Boulevard Fort Smith, AR 72904

Edgy Las Vegas-based hard rock outfit Adelitas Way broke into the mainstream in 2009 with the song "Invincible," which appeared on numerous television spots for CSI Miami and served as the theme song for the weekly World Wrestling Entertainment Superstars show. Formed in the late 2000s by lead vocalist Rick DeJesus and lead guitarist Chris Iorio, the band (which also included rhythm guitarist Keith Wallen, bassist Derek Johnston, and drummer Trevor Stafford) released its eponymous debut on Virgin Records in July 2009. The band's sophomore effort, Home School Valedictorian, arrived in summer 2011 and featured new lead guitarist Robert Zakaryan after Iorio left the group within five months of their debut's release. At the end of 2012, writing began for the band's third album, while only six months later, Keith Wallen and Derek Johnston announced that they were leaving. In July 2013 the group entered the studio with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz to record Stuck, which was released the following year and featured the hit single "Dog on a Leash," which peaked at number seven on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Chart. 2015 saw the release of the Deserve This EP, and the following year, the band issued their fourth studio long player, Getaway.
