Two of Latin music’s most famous powerhouses co-headlined on tour for the first time in their voluminous careers rekindling the joy of celebration and making epic melodic history.
Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin and special guest Sebastain Yatra turned “The Rock” into a world-class escapade with their multitude of award winning hit classics and latest rhythmic tracks converting the 19,500 arena to an indoor bash extravaganza.
Columbian crooner, songwriter Sebastian Yatra kicked off the showcase with his smash single “Traicionera” off his 2018 debut album Mantra, granting him his first Latin American Music Award for New Artist of The Year, firing up the elated crowd.
Sustaining that sexy sizzling tempo, he let loose on untamed track “Sutra”, a fiery collabo with fellow Latino Puerto Rican reggaeton singer/rapper Dalmata then softened the flow with an acoustic version to love ballad “Un Ano” alongside his guitarist before closing to “Guaynaa” and “Robarte Un Beso” which won him 2018 ASCAP Award.
Transformation of the stage turned to a psychedelic light show for its next chart-topper the “King of Latin Pop” Enrique Iglesias, sent fans into overdrive with “I’m A Freak” off his tenth album Sex and Love, “Chasing The Sun” and “I Like How It Feels” pumping the adrenaline filled arena to capacity.
Billboard’s first Top Latin Artist of All Time and multi-award virtuoso kept the flame searing on “Duele El Corazon” and classic hit “Bailamos” jumping off stage running through the frenzied mob interchanging the exhilarating vibe.
Before concluding his vivacious set, the spicy rock star displayed his immense love for his fan base and his craft with a revelry of confetti and balloons donning the singers initials full blowout mode to “I Like It” making it a bliss-filled funfest.
The final performer needed no introduction as his signature track said it all. Blazing his set carnivalesque style, Latin Music King Ricky Martin brought the house down on “Livin’ La Vida Loca” rocking New Jersey’s epicenter to its core.
It was non-stop, no holds barred spectacular performances on “La Bomba” and “Que Rico Fuera” while switching to his romantic swag on “Vuele” before revving full throttle again on “Lola, Lola”, “She Bangs” and zesty “Shake Your Bon-Bon” getting admirers to shake their tail feathers.
Ricky, his amazing assemble and outstanding crew of dancers executed an astounding display that kept the ecstatic crowd out their seats the entire show. Taunting “do you want some more”, the Latin Adonis put on a show stopping smoldering finale to his 1998 world-wide smash “Cup Of Life”.
