Rebelde returns: What happened to the members of RBD, the band that returns to the stage this year?

At the beginning of the 2000s, a musical and television phenomenon crossed Latin America: the Mexican band RBD. Integrated by anahí, Maite Perroni, Christian Chavez, Christopher von Uckerman, Alfonso ‘Poncho’ Herrera Y Sweet Mariathe grouping was a derivative product of the series “Rebel“, the version that Televisa made of the Argentine original “Rebelde Way”.

With six studio albums and tours around the world, the group showed that they could not only repeat, but increase the success that their Argentine peers had a couple of years ago. In its four years of duration, RBD It received great acceptance from a wide audience of young people who had become hooked on its members, beyond television.

However, in 2008 it was time to say goodbye. After their last tour, the members went in other directions.
