Spain's most successful rock act, Heroes del Silencio, is to reunite for a 10-date tour of the United States, Latin America and Spain. Heroes del Silencio, which disbanded in 1996 after a twelve-year career, sold an estimated 5 million-plus units of its four studio and two live albums.

The band's label, EMI Hispavox, last November released "The Platinum Collection," a triple CD of 30 of the band's songs with 12 previously unpublished numbers. At that time, a re-grouping of Heroes was ruled out.

Five concerts have been confirmed so far: Sept. 15 in Guatemala City's Army Stadium, Guatemala; Sept. 22 in the City Club in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Sept. 29 in El Forum, Los Angeles; Oct. 6 in Foro Sol, Mexico City; and Oct. 12, in La Romareda soccer stadium in the band's home city of Zaragoza, Spain. Marisa Corral, of the group's management company Rock and Chicken, says the other five concerts will be revealed later.

"[Singer Enrique] Bunbury and the band's other three members talked about playing together for a limited number of gigs in places where they had played before with success," says Corral. "They rehearsed and realized they still sound very good together, but there is no talk of recording new material or filming any of the concerts. This tour will be great news for their army of fans."

Heroes was the first band to succeed in Germany singing in Spanish only, an achievement since matched by Colombian artist Juanes.
