Ocean Drive - - September 2017 - BY JON WARECH

En­rique Igle­sias and Pit­bull can’t get enough of their home­town—and vice versa—as they re­turn for their second con­cert of the year.

If you’re look­ing for some­one to root for in the sum­mer con­cert tour com­pe­ti­tion, En­rique Igle­sias can be your hero, and Pit­bull, too, as they re­turn to their home­town of Mi­ami for the second time in three months, bring­ing the heat to Amer­i­canair­lines Arena on Septem­ber 30. Co-head­lin­ing one of the big­gest tours in the coun­try, the duo raked in $18 mil­lion from their first 15 shows, which puts them at num­ber two on the list of 2017’s top­gross­ing sum­mer tours, be­hind only St­ing.

Sup­ply­ing both mas­sive dance beats and swoony bal­lads, the pop stars are play­ing all the hits, in­clud­ing “Fire­ball,” “Culo,” and “Feel This Mo­ment” from Pit­bull and “Bai­lando,” “Es­cape,” and “Bail­amos” from Igle­sias. It’s an all-night, on-your-feet af­fair that fans are sure to be rav­ing about for years. And for those whose taste leans more to­ward rock, Igle­sias has been known to toss in a few cov­ers as well, like “Seven Na­tion Army” and “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.”

Long­time friends, Pit­bull and Igle­sias have toured to­gether be­fore and col­lab­o­rated on the hit “Messin’ Around.” As their star power grew, the bro­mance blos­somed—no doubt based partly on their shared love for Mi­ami: Igle­sias grew up here and, with long­time part­ner Anna Kournikova, re­mains a res­i­dent of the city, up­grad­ing man­sions every so often. Pit­bull, of course, is Mr. 305—a first-gen­er­a­tion Cubanamer­i­can born in Mi­ami.

To­gether, Pit­bull, Igle­sias, and about 20,000 of their clos­est friends are primed for an un­for­get­table show. If you love Mi­ami as much as they do, it’s a party you won’t want to miss. Amer­i­canair­lines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Mi­ami, 786-777-1000; aaarena.com
