Mega-stars of the Latin music-scene teamed-up to show Atlanta-Duluth a night they will soon not forget. Spaniard Enrique Iglesias and Cuban sensation Pitbull packed the Infinite Energy Center to capacity and treated fans to an epic presentation that displayed the best these stars had to offer. From catchy tunes, confetti cannons, and incomparable light shows, these two juggernauts brought their A-game to A-town to leave no doubt as to how and why they’re considered among the best the Latin music-scene has produced over the last decade.
For his part, Enrique Iglesias goes above and beyond to, literally, warm up the crowd. Fire displays shoot upward on stage as Enrique charms the crowd with thrilling presentations of his chart-topping pop-hits. For roughly 100 minutes, Enrique commands his crowd with several tricks up his sleeve; ranging from entering the stage from below-ground, getting up close to the lucky fans in the first rows, and performing an encore on a second stage closer to the nosebleed seats. By the end of his run, Enrique Iglesias made sure his fans knew he had given them 110% with a sensational closing rendition of “I Like It” that featured confetti raining down on attendees and large white beach-balloons initialed “E.I.” – resembling lottery balls – bouncing around and creating a euphoric moment between crowd and presenter to close-out the act.
With large shoes to fill, Pitbull owns the task of following up Enrique’s presentation with a jaw-dropping entrance. The Cuban native and Miami standout is introduced in grand fashion with a laser show that largely displays his name as he makes his way to the stage. Mr. 305 exudes an electrifying presence from the get-go. Decked in a dapper black suit and designer shades, Pitbull goes to work as he opens the night with “Feel this Moment” – one of his endless smash hits – to instantly create an all-out party atmosphere. Moving forward, Armando Christian Pérez is quick to acknowledge the city of Atlanta and thank native Lil’ Jon for giving him a start in the business – jokingly followed by a light-hearted imitation of Lil’ Jon’s famous catchphrases – which prompted the Hotlanta crowd to cheerfully react. Riffling out hit after hit for nearly 2 hours, Mr. Worldwide is a must-see act and one of the premier performers in the entire music-industry. If Pitbull comes to a town near you, do yourself a solid and go witness what all the hoopla is about.
