In 2006, Latin pop-rock powerhouse Maná had been recording and touring non-stop for more than 20 years. And it was time for a break. So the band took a five-year hiatus to prepare 2011's Drama y Luz (Drama and Light) before finally returning to the touring grind.
But back on the road for nearly two years now, the Mexican crew hasn't slowed a bit. Frontman Fher Olvera, drummer Alex González, and the rest continue to circle the globe and climb the charts to a steady, soft-rock beat. And this week, Maná concludes its Drama y Luz world tour at the American Airlines Arena, following sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden and the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
To commemorate the occasion, here's a look back at the last few years in the life of Maná.
