Incredible start to the Latin American leg of One World Tour by Ricky Martin
On Saturday, after hearing Ricky Martin during his sound checks, we finally got to see him LIVE at his One World Tour, first leg in Latin America! We already know the Ricky Martin concert in the Altos de Chavón amphitheater was a huge success, wherein the energy and charisma that defines Ricky Martin so well owned the night, and was the highlight of our awesome weekend. Let’s recap the dazzling details…
To begin, remember when we told you to be on the lookout for Fundación MIR who would be at the entrance greeting us? Well, they had their delicious cookies for sale, baked by the students themselves. And they were yummy! A small but significant contribution to their cause that adds up, which is exactly what happened as we saw lots of people purchasing treats that they took to their seats in little bundles waiting for the concert to start.
First thing that caught our attention was the STAGE, the scenery, and the lights!! It was incredible. What baffled most of us was a huge box-like object right in the middle of the stage that had us all pondering exactly where would Ricky sing since it covered nearly the whole stage?! In our jittery wait, screens displayed the sponsors of the event, and then suddenly changed to DJ KORDUROY from Santo Domingo. Within a minutes had us all pumped and dancing. After some sweet mixes, he left the stage and the lights went dark! The musicians prepped their positions, and we all became super excited for what was ahead.
At 9:15 pm, the huge box that had covered the stage started to rise, showing off the dancers from behind it all dressed in blue. We saw Ricky Martin lowered onto a platform from within the box, and he started singing, “Mr. Put It Down” (sans Pitbull). A song so full of energy that it had us on our feet and dancing. He was so captivating! 2 songs and a change of clothes later, he was back singing “Adrenalina,” featuring a recording of Wisin. He had us all singing and dancing along, a 5,000 person amphitheater all in unison. After “Adrenalina” he gave us a rest and sang “Tal vez”.
When we heard the intro to “Livin’ la Vida Loca” the crowd went wild! Ricky Martin came out on top of the hood of a silver convertible with two dancers in the front seats. Smoke filled the air and lights flickered throughout the stage and and we were back on our feet for “It’s Alright”, “She Bangs” and “Come with Me”.
