JOLIET – The bands Los Lobos and The Fabulous Thunderbirds will perform at the Rialto Square Theatre on April 8.

The Rialto has announced that tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

Los Lobos is a rock band formed in California in the 1970s. The band topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1987 with a cover of Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba.”

The Fabulous Thunderbirds are a blues band formed in Texas in the 1970s.

“For over 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential American band,” the Fabulous Thunderbirds’ website says.

“The group’s distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners as ‘Tuff Enuff’ and ‘Wrap It Up,’ ” the site says. “Co-founder Kim Wilson, the sole original member, still spearheads the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation.”
