Ever been watching Narcos and wish you could’ve been there? Weird… But if so, you’re in luck. Following the massive success of Netflix series Narcos, Javier Pena & Steve Murphy are set to touch down in Australia next July to divulge all the sordid details of their epic take-down of Pablo Escobar. For those of you who aren’t in the know, Escobar was known as the “king of cocaine” – a pretty notorious title – and Pena and Murphy are the DEA agents responsible for shutting him down once and for all.
Why was Escobar known as the king of cocaine? Simple: the Colombian drug lord was the wealthiest criminal of the 20th century, due massively to his power and violence which saw the deaths of, among others, three Colombian Presidential candidates, over 200 judges and more than 1,000 police officers. And it doesn’t stop there – Escobar was also responsible for killing countless innocent bystanders during his effort to kill an unknown number of competing members in the drug trafficking business. Keen to find out how his defeat really went down? You won’t want to miss Capturing Pablo: An Evening with Javier Pena & Steve Murphy.
As well as talking about the take-down, bloody legends Pena and Murphy (pictured above) will speak about the rise and fall of the Medellin Cartel, with exclusive stories and images that audiences haven’t even seen in the documentary. This is huge news for massive fans of Narcos, especially since they will be discussing their input into the Netflix series as well as holding a Q&A with audience members. You won’t want to miss the chance to hear these two internationally recognised agents speak about the most high profile, multinational investigation of its time.
The pair will be speaking in Sydney on Tuesday the 11th of July and in Melbourne on Thursday the 13th of July. Tickets will be on sale today at 12pm (Friday the 2nd of December) – the anniversary of Pablo Escobar‘s death. Savage. Grab ’em here!
While we’re on the topic – why not download all of Narcos onto your Netflix account and watch it offline! If you’ve already recently had a binge, check out this documentary on “the life and death and destruction of Pablo Escobar.”
