An exuberant celebration unfolded when Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin kicked off their first joint tour at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. After having to postpone the North American co-headlining tour for a year due to the global pandemic, we were pleasantly surprised by everyone’s enthusiasm peaking through the roof.
The most awaited tour of the decade officially kicked off in Sin City on Saturday, with two of our era’s most iconic Latin music sensations, Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin, combining their talents at MGM Grand Arena. The pairing of two of Latin music’s hottest artists to headline a tour together exemplifies how well they complement one another and is sure to create a lasting legacy in music history. Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin’s excitement at being back on stage was palpable as they swaggered through confetti, fireworks, lasers, and seductive moves. Thousands of joyous fans witnessed this once-in-a-lifetime show at the massive MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The show began with global Latin sensation Sebastián Yatra, who demonstrated his talent for subverting expectations through his charismatic stage presence. The show started with an impressive rendition of ‘Traicionera,’ accompanied by infectious dancing, followed by a string of ballads including ‘Un Año’ and ‘No Hay Nadie Mas,’ exhibiting his incredible vocal prowess. His set ended with massive fan favorites ‘Pareja Del Año,’ ‘Chica Ideal’ and ‘Delincuente.’ He also wore a customized Dolce & Gabbana fit, which he will showcase throughout the rest of the tour.
Taking the stage next was multi-GRAMMY award-winning artist Ricky Martin, who delivered a spectacular show as expected by his fans. Ricky sent the audience into a frenzy with his all-time mega classic hits, ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca,’ ‘La Bomba,’ and his newest hit, ‘Que Rico Fuera,’ as he kicked off the set. Martin wanted his performance to be like a nonstop dance party with his friends, and that’s exactly what he gave us. With Ricky’s infectious spirit and energy and the charisma that he possesses, he presented an all-dance, chart-topping show performing additional hits such as ‘Maria,’ ‘Vente Pa’ Ca,’ and ‘La Mordidita,’ and more. Having closed his set, Martin, who is undoubtedly one of the world’s most popular performers, reinforced the reason for his success.
The King of Latin Pop, Enrique Iglesias, made his long-awaited return to the stage to roaring applause from the crowd. Iglesias wowed the MGM Grand Arena by demonstrating impeccable showmanship as he performed hit songs one after another for his eager fans who clamored to meet him. Enrique presented a nostalgic journey through his most acclaimed hits, including ‘Escape,’ ‘Duele El Corazon,’ ‘Subeme La Radio,’ ‘Loco y I Like It.’ Additionally, he performed several irresistible tracks from his new album, including ‘Me Pase’ ft. Farruko and ‘Chasing the Sun.’ A highlight of the concert was the audience’s enthusiastic participation in every song, showing their great devotion to the singer. It is no wonder Iglesias has had such a profound impact on several generations since he cultivated a lasting legacy over the past two decades.
