Iglesias and Martin start co-headlining tour

27 September 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- On Saturday night, one of the most highly anticipated tours of the decade kicked off in Sin City, uniting two of the most iconic Latin artists of our time, GRAMMY Award-winning, multi-platinum powerhouses Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin, in an incredible breathtaking show at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino Las Vegas Arena.

With a sold out MGM Grand Garden Arena, thousands of fans gathered to experience this once-in-a-lifetime show, which opened at 7:00 pm with the multi-talented international Latin sensation Sebastián Yatra. One of the most powerful Latin pop artists of this generation, Yatra showcased his talent for transforming genre expectations with his sensational stage persona, kicking off his set with a special rendition of his classic hit "Traicionera" accompanied by dancers and infectious energy, which was followed by a string of ballads, "Un Año" and "No Hay Nadie Mas,” to remind the audience of his unmatched vocals. The Colombian artist ended his set on a high note, performing his fans’ absolute favorite, the 3x platinum massive smash "Pareja Del Año.” Yatra also delivered on his new releases, the 2x platinum "Chica Ideal” and reggaeton crossover hit “Delincuente,” sporting a personalized fit from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2022 collection, which he will preview throughout the remainder of the tour.

Multi-GRAMMY award winner Ricky Martin took to the stage next with a off the charts explosive show in a fashion that was exactly what his fans were hoping for. Surrounded by his ten-piece band and seven dancers, Ricky kicked off the set with his all-time mega classic hits, “Livin’ La Vida Loca,” “La Bomba,” and his newest hit “Que Rico Fuera,” bringing the audience into full dance mode. “I want my set to feel like a non stop dance night out with my special friends” said Martin and that’s exactly what he did. Ricky brought his infectious spirit and energy along with the charisma he is largely known for while performing an all dance, chart-topping show performing additional hits such as “Maria,” “Vente Pa’ Ca,” and “La Mordidita,” and more. The closing of the set was one for the books itself designed as a celebration of life. Martin, who is unilaterally adored throughout the world, proved once again why he’s one of the most successful performers of our time.

Closing this historic night was the King of Latin Pop himself, Enrique Iglesias, who made his long-awaited return to the stage. Lighting up the MGM Grand Arena with his cultivated showmanship, Iglesias engaged fans with his outstanding charisma as he presented mega hit after mega hit for an audience eager to share their night with the illustrious icon. Enrique did not disappoint in constructing a nostalgic journey through his acclaimed catalog, presenting his most renowned chart-toppers such as ESCAPE, DUELE EL CORAZON, SUBEME LA RADIO, LOCO y I LIKE IT. He also sang some of the irresistible themes of his newest album “FINAL VOL. 1” como “Me Pase” ft. Farruko & “Chasing the Sun”. Showing their moving adoration for the singer, the audience sang along to every word of every song, demonstrating the profound impact that Iglesias has had on multiple generations and serving as a powerful testimony to the phenomenal legacy he has crafted over the course of two extraordinarily successful decades in the industry.

To conclude the inaugural show of this awe-inspiring tour, the three stars joined together on stage to thank their fantastic audience, celebrating the official start of the ENRIQUE & RICKY LIVE! Tour, which will include a total of 26 dates in 22 cities in the United States and will close on 20 November in Anaheim, CA. A unique event of truly epic proportions, this remarkable tour presented by two of the most talented Latin artists the world has ever seen will define an era and is sure to stand out in music history as one of the greatest of all time.
