Written by on November 24, 2023

Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull, and Ricky Martin performed their ‘The Trilogy Tour’ at Toyota Center on Saturday, November 18, 2023. A packed crowd felt anticipation for the night of performances to come.

Pitbull started the night with a performance that brought the audience to dance and sing along with the song “Don’t Stop the Party.” Having an incredible artistic career, he does not need an introduction. His genre style often blends rap verses with catchy hooks and dance beats, creating a signature sound that transcends cultural and linguistic boundaries. Pitbull’s performance contained high energy, a charismatic stage presence, and music encouraging celebration and dance.

He had fantastic chemistry with his dancers as they added an entertaining element to the performance, elevating the venue’s energy. He would talk to the crowd between sets of songs and describe how their support has impacted his life, leading to why he can be on stage today doing what he loves. He also wore a cowboy hat as he expressed he was in Texas, and western was the way to go. He later gave the hat to a fan in the crowd near the stage.

He continued his performance with songs from his vast discography from albums Pitbull Starring In Rebelution, Planet Pit, Global Warning: Meltdown, Globalization, as well as singles “On The Floor,” “Gasolina” and “JUMPIN.” Standout songs that got the crowd moving are “Hotel Room Service,” “Timber” and “Time of Our Lives.” Pitbull ended his spectacular performance with the hit “Give Me Everything,” leaving the crowd excited for the next act to perform.

Enrique Iglesias took the stage and continued the excitement of the previous performance. He began with his hit song “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You),” starting strong with one of his most global hits. He has achieved international success with his melodic and romantic songs. His genre style primarily revolves around Latin pop and dance-pop, incorporating R&B and electronic music elements. Known for his charismatic stage presence, Iglesias has delivered numerous hits. Dynamic energy, emotional ballads, and a seamless blend of Latin and contemporary pop influences mark his performances.

Iglesias had terrific chemistry with his accompanying band, which helped fill out his sound and added an exciting element to the songs performed. He used a smaller stage in the back of the floor where he would interact with many fans between going from the main stage to that stage and vice versa. He also had an intimate duet with one of the backing vocalists on the smaller stage for the songs “Loco” and “ME PASE.”

He continued his performance with many interactions with fans and singing songs from across his discography from albums Enrique, Escape, Euphoria, SEX AND LOVE and FINAL (Vol.1), as well as a cover of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).” Standout songs are “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You),” “Cuando Me Enamoro,” and “I Like It.” He ended his high-energy performance with the song “Bailando.” Soon, the final performance of the night was to come.

Ending the night was Ricky Martin, who came in with an entourage of live musicians and international dancers and began with the song “Pégate.” Martin rose to international fame with his energetic performances and contributions to Latin pop music. His genre style primarily revolves around Latin pop, although he has incorporated elements of dance-pop and other Latin genres in his work. His charismatic stage presence and performance feature a dynamic blend of dance routines, vibrant visuals, and passionate vocals.

His fantastic dancing skills and charisma with the crowd starred his entire performance. The music left the crowd constantly grooving to the enticing beats, and with Martin dancing as well, the energy stayed high. His playfulness on stage and interactions with his entourage added such a live and spectacular feeling to the performance. The element of singing and dancing was commendable, as it is challenging to do as excellently as he did in a live performance.

He continued the night with impeccable performances of his iconic discography from albums A Medio Vivir, Vuelve, Ricky Martin, Sound Loaded, Ricky Martin MTV Unplugged and singles “Vente Pa’ Ca” and “Adrenalina.” Standout songs that got the crowd grooving along are “Por Arriba, Por Abajo,” “Vente Pa’ Ca,” and “Livin’ la Vida Loca.” Martin ended the night with the song “The Cup of Life (La Copa De La Vida),” thanking the crowd for their support of their tour and then leaving the stage on a high note. 

Overall, it was a night full of energy and excitement with these amazing Latin artists that I’m sure many of you know of or grew up with their music like I did. Check out our live coverage page for the latest coverage!
