AllMusic Review by

The Chilean group los Prisioneros became the country's most popular rock band in the late '80s. In 2001, after issuing a remixed version of the band's song "Las Sierras Electricas," singer/bassist Jorge González, guitarist Claudio Narea, and drummer Miguel Tapia realized they were still a major force in the contemporary pop/rock scene. That same year, los Prisioneros decided to return to express their gratitude to their followers with two live performances on November 31 and December 1, 2001, at Santiago's Estadio Nacional. In front of 140,000 people, the rebellious trio played its greatest hits for about three hours. Carlos Fonseca produced En el Estadio Nacional, a 27-track record featuring the smash "Por Qué No Se Van," "Tren Al Sur," and "El Baile de los Que Sobran." The double album sold 30,000 copies in Chile in less than a week, as fans anticipated the band's Latin American tour.
