For the first time ever and for one night only, the Royal Albert Hall will host the mythical, dangerous, acrobatic and heroic world of Mexico's masked wrestlers.
Lucha Libre is huge, jaw-hanging, riotous fun of a kind that you will never forget. Marvel at high-flying acrobatics and astonishing special effects as 16 of Mexico's finest, led by the legendary Blue Demon Jr., join battle under the Hall's mighty dome.
Featuring the funkiest live music from Tijuana's Bostich & Fussible (Nortec Collective),Lucha Libre promises an exhilarating, foot-stamping, air-punching journey to the centre of a life-affirming struggle where rudos fight tecnicos and where good does not always triumph over evil.
