Enrique Iglesias in Concert
Enrique Iglesias really shines on stage, bringing his big personality into the spotlight, and engaging with his fans on a level that almost feels like he’s an old friend rather than an international Latin superstar. Enrique Iglesias really loves to involve his fans in concerts, encouraging them to sing along and really connecting with them. Like many Latin pop artists, Enrique’s concerts have a more acoustic feel, with the vocals and instrumentals carrying the performance without many of the extras that fans expect from more traditional pop artists. Performances do include lighting displays and a large screen so that fans near the back of the venue get the same intimate experience as those in the front rows.
