Kendall Schmidt and Heffron Drive To Play Mexico City Show
The Big Time Rush Star Heads to Mexico with New Band Heffron Drive
NEW YORK, NY (July 23, 2014) – Heffron Drive will play the band’s debut show in Mexico City on October 4th at El Plaza Condesa, a recently refurbished venue that is a celebrated part of Mexico City nightlife. Mexico is home to one of Schmidt’s largest fan bases and also happens to be one of his favorite countries to perform.
“We are so excited to head down to Mexico City to play for all our fans there and promote our new album,” Schmidt says. “We have always received such huge support from our Mexican fans, so it was the perfect place to book one of Heffron Drive’s first-ever tour stops. We hope to announce many more Mexico show dates in the near future, too!”

About Heffron Drive
Heffron Drive was founded by Kendall Schmidt prior to his joining Big Time Rush. In 2008, he met guitarist Dustin Belt at an industry event where the two realized they shared many things in common: both had been born in Wichita, Kansas in the same hospital, and even lived on the same street – Heffron Drive. Aside from becoming instant friends, the duo formed the band. Thousands began streaming uploaded tunes via MySpace and the Internet was soon buzzing about the duo. However, shortly thereafter the Big Time Rush opportunity came along, bringing on Kendall and, eventually, Dustin as the touring guitarist for the group. The two never forgot about Heffron Drive though, stealing spare moments to write and plan. Now, an ever-growing entity in its own right, Heffron Drive is bracing for a big year. 2013 saw Schmidt and Heffron Drive both in the studio and on the road for much of the fourth quarter, selling out a headlining tour in more than 20 markets. Though Big Time Rush will always be a part of Schmidt’s life – he recently finished up a South American tour with the record-setting group – he is looking forward to his continued radio success and a full length album release in the fall via his label, TOLbooth Records.
