You know it’s going to be a party when you put two of Latin & Pop Music’s biggest stars together under one roof. That’s exactly what happened Thursday night when Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull brought their co-headlining tour to Boston’s TD Garden.

Iglesias, wearing his signature t-shirt and jeans, opened the main set with “Súbeme La Radio.”  From the second the latin-superstar took the stage, the crowd went into a dancing frenzy, belting every word. Iglesias strutted and sang his way through his massive catalogue, smoke and lighting special effects in tow. 

An hour into the show, it was Pitbull’s turn to take the stage for a second headlining set, opening with “Feel This Moment.” The Cuban-American rapper and his famous dance crew, “The Most Bad Ones,” danced their way through the show hit by hit, closing with “Give Me Everything.”

Concert Review: Enrique Iglesias & Pitbull Bring Latin Music Party To Boston

This past Saturday, Latin Music heavyweights Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias, along with their thousands of fans, descended upon the TD Garden in Boston for their “Enrique & Pitbull” fall tour.

Pitbull, wearing all black, opened the main set with “Don’t Stop The Party,” which was something nobody intended on doing in any case. From the second the Cuban-Amercian rapper took the stage, the crowd went into a dancing frenzy. Pitbull danced his way through the show hit after hit, smoke and lighting special effects in tow.

Halfway through his performance, it was clear that Pitbull was there for one reason. Saying to the crowd in one of his monologues, “The one thing about music is it’s the universal language.” No matter what everyone race, belief or religion was, he was there to make sure that everyone had a good time. “We’re here to forget all the negative from 2014” the rapper said, and that’s just what he did. The dance-heavy set lasted about an hour and a half, with few slow moments. The sexually driven performance was complimented by his signature dancers, “The Most Bad Ones,” who accompany Pitbull to most of his events. 

Following a veritable storm of confetti, it was time for Enrique Iglesias to take the stage and win over the primarily Latina audience’s hearts.

Enrique’s concerts are something that have to be experienced. Unlike most other artists, the Spanish singer takes time between each song to talk to the audience and get to know them, even jumping off the catwalk to take selfies with screaming fans. And of course, in typical Enrique Iglesias fashion, there was a second stage to where he went halfway through his set. Once there, he took a male fan onstage, where they took pictures, drank rum, and sang “Stand By Me” to the entire audience, taking advantage of the fact that the second stage was closer to the fans in the back.

Having released his new album, “Sex And Love,” back in March, it was to be expected that the majority of his set would be full of new music. However, that wasn’t the case. Iglesias took plenty of time to play some of his throwbacks like “Bailamos” and “Be With Me,” along with his newer hits like “Tonight I’m (Loving) You” and “Bailando.”

The real high point of the night didn’t come, though, until the final song of the two sets, Enrique’s hit “I Like It.” Co-headliner Pitbull arose from the stage to lend his voice, and the two danced, hugged, and thanked their fans for coming as a second storm of confetti rained down upon Boston’s TD Garden. 

Due to the incredible talents of Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull, everyone came out to have fun, and nobody left disappointed. As Pitbull said at the beginning of the evening, “music is the universal language,” and everyone was certainly speaking it.
