Show Review – Enrique Iglesias & Ricky Martin bring the heat for one of fall’s biggest tours

Enrique and Ricky is a tour many fans have wanted for some time, bringing together two of Latin music’s biggest names of the last 20+ years together for an evening of hits. Even through a later start time due to technical issues, both men as well their opener rallied a near sold out arena for night 1 of their 2 nights in Rosemont, IL.



Opening the night was Columbian singer Sebastián Yatra getting the fans on their feet and dancing. With dance moves galore the singer made use of the massive stage and run way to ensure the crowd was hyped up. Blasting through a bevy of hits that had the crowd singing loudly as if he was headliner he set the bar high for what was to come.




Thankfully however Enrique Iglesias came out swinging delivering what just might be one of the most fun sets of the year. With a catalog of hits in his arsenal Enrique busted through songs in both English and Spanish and faster dance based songs alongside ballads giving fans the full spectrum of what his music has to offer. The man is a performer through and through though and was beyond happy to be back here performing making sure to go into the crowd and sing, shake hands, and just look beyond happy to be here doing what he’s doing.




Making sure his set was a spectacle to remember Enrique and his fantastic band had pyro, air cannons, balloons dropping from the ceiling, lasers, and a backing wall of sparks to have his set be a party you soon won’t forget.




Closing the night was Ricky Martin who opened with one of his biggest hits “Livin’ la Vida Loca”. Sounding and looking fantastic his set was a much more simmered down show compared to Enriques. Both him and his back up dancers had frequent costume changes with the stage and props changing frequently. Sometimes between songs while these changes were taking place there would be another event on the ramp be it a dancer or various drummers.




While Rickys show may not have been as flashy he did bring the hits that made the crowd shake their bon-bons. Be it the fact that it was a show running extremely late on a weekday as Ricky didn’t hit the stage till 11:15pm or the crowd being tired after Enriques set but Ricky had to perform his heart out to keep the crowd going.
