GLOBAL SUPERSTAR ENRIQUE IGLESIAS TO DAZZLE GEORGIAN MUSIC FANS WITH FIRST EVER BLACK SEA CONCERT IN BATUMI

“MTV LIVE GEORGIA” TO ROCK BATUMI, 2 AUGUST 2011

Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN), a division of Viacom Inc. (NYSE: VIA and VIA.B), and the Government of Georgia today announced that they are to partner to stage the first ever MTV Live music event in Georgia.

Taking place on 2 August 2011, MTV Live Georgia will be an electrifying outdoor concert held in the picturesque Black Sea tourist resort of Batumi.  The spectacular concert will be headlined by global superstar Enrique Iglesias, who is guaranteed to thrill thousands of young music fans during his first ever trip to Georgia.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is stopping off in Batumi’s historic Europe Square to perform for Georgian music lovers midway through his Euphoria tour, which has already seen him pack venues from North America to Canada, Latin America and Europe.  Iglesias, who holds the record as the best-selling Latin artist of all time, having sold more than 61.5 million albums and 40 million singles around the world, will wow the crowd with a sizzling set list combining the most stunning tracks from his 2010 Spanish/English album release Euphoria, including monster hit “I Like It” and Nicole Scherzinger collaboration “Heartbeat” as well as classic tracks from his greatest hits catalogue including crowd pleasers “Hero” and “Be With You”.

Popular Georgian artists Sofia Nizharadze and Eldrine will also perform at MTV Live Georgia.

MTV Live Georgia is set to attract thousands of young Georgian music fans and holidaymakers to Batumi’s historic Europe Square for an unforgettable night of live music and spectacular staging. 

Highlights from MTV Live Georgia will be broadcast as part of MTV World Stage – MTV’s global TV series that brings multi-genre artists with global relevance to audiences in over 600 million households in 152 territories. Recorded “live” at the most exclusive gigs, music festivals and unique concert locations from around the world, MTV World Stage offers a “front row seat” for music lovers to experience the hottest artists on the globe without leaving the comfort of their sofas.

Commented Enrique Iglesias, “I can’t wait to experience Georgia’s beautiful coastline.  I hope everyone is ready for an exciting night with a great lineup!”

Commented Alex Okosi, Senior Vice President, Emerging Markets, VIMN, “We are delighted to partner with the Government of Georgia to bring our popular MTV Live and MTV World Stage franchises to Georgia for the first time.  The city of Batumi will form a stunning backdrop to this world class music event.”

MTV Live Georgia is a free concert and no tickets are required.  The event will commence at 19:00 local time.  Due to the capacity of Europe Square, concert goers will be given access on a first come, first served basis while many more will be able to watch on giant screens erected in Batumi at The Boulevard and also in Theater Square. The organisers expect large crowds in Batumi, so music fans are encourage to arrive in plenty of time and to be patient.

Sound Bytes: Enrique’s Euphoria is Lost in Translation

Enrique Iglesias
Euphoria
Universal
Released: 7/6/2010

Oh boy, that’s all I can really say here. I am a huge Enrique fan, but listening to Euphoria was not euphoric at all.  The album is a mix between new English and Spanish pop/dance songs.  If I had to grade the album just on the guest list of stars on Euphoria, it would definitely take the grade.  On the other hand, just because artists such as Lionel Richie, Akon, Usher, Nicole Scherzinger, and Juan Luis Guerra grace the album doesn’t mean it’s going to be a good one.
It really irritates me that a couple of the guest artists feel this need to say who they are in the song. It’s just completely unnecessary in my book. I know who Akon , Usher, and Pit Bull are and it’s just tacky that they need to say their name. [Read more...]

Ciara Brings the Love, Sex, and Magic to Chicago

Ciara Charter One Pavilion

I love Ciara. I really do. I just wish she would spend more time performing her own songs than those of other artists in her genre. The girl has three albums under her belt and has been featured on many hit songs by artists such as T-Pain, Enrique Iglesias, Diddy, Nelly, Missy Elliott, Janet, and Bow Wow. I couldn’t help but be slightly annoyed that half of Ciara’s set last night opening for Jay-Z involved performing a montage of random radio hits. It almost seemed like she was simply attempting to please the crowd by giving them familiar songs to sing and dance along to, even though Ciara has plenty of her own hot tracks! I was shocked that Ciara didn’t perform her single “Get Up” (with Chamillionaire) off the original soundtrack from the dance flick Step Up. The song was also on Ciara’s sophomore album The Evolution.

Nevertheless, whatever Ciara lacked in performance from her song repertoire, she sure as hell made up for it with her dancing. This girl is fierce with her moves! Her body is insane and completely ripped. I’m jealous. I have no idea how she does it, especially her signature move where she ever so slowly bends backwards until her torso is parallel with the stage and only inches from touching the ground. Man, I get chills everytime I see her do that. Along with my favorite Ciara song “Like A Boy,” check out the other hits she performed in Chicago last night…

Enrique Iglesias Knows How to Treat His Fans

Enrique Iglesias
Allstate Arena – Rosemont, IL
September 27, 2008

Enrique Iglesias Allstate Arena - Rosemont, IL

Enrique Iglesias opened his show last night with his 2004 hit “Not In Love” and followed it with two Spanish ballads. Switching up his English and Spanish hits, Enrique kept the audience on their feet waiting to hear what the next song would be. Having been performing and writing music for the past 20 years, he did not have nearly enough time to fit in all of the songs that have garnered him millions of fans from around the world. “Bailamos” was the 4th song of the night and brought back the memories of the moment years ago when he officially crossed over into mainstream pop in America.

Keep reading after the jump to see more photos from last night’s nearly sold out concert…

Enrique Iglesias Allstate Arena - Rosemont, ILFive lucky fans were brought up on stage for some group bonding time with Mr. Enrique Iglesias himself. Shots of vodka all around! A bottle of Grey Goose was conveniently awaiting consumption behind two couches set up front and center on the stage. After everyone’s shot glasses were emptied, Enrique went around to each of the five fans (three guys and two girls) and poured vodka straight out of the bottle into their mouths. All band members and back up singers surrounded the chosen fans and positioned themselves for an intimate acoustic session in the middle of his set featuring two of Enrique’s Spanish hits from earlier in his career. In between the songs, Enrique chatted up his five super fans and effortlessly went back and forth between speaking in Spanish and in English. After performing his new hit single “Lloro Por Ti” white and silver confetti was blown out from all sides of the catwalk while he ended his set with “Dimelo” – the Spanish version of his hit song “Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song).”

A true bilingual performer aware of his audience, he knew quite well that the roughly 18,000 fans before him at the Allstate Arena spoke both English and Spanish. He also knew that some of those (ahem – myself included) in attendance did not speak Spanish all that well. Thank God for his fluency in both languages spoken by the American people because I have not spoken Spanish in about four years and needed him to speak in English in order to keep me from going insane! There is nothing more frustrating than not understanding what one of your favorite artists is saying to you! Enrique did an excellent job of making me feel included in all the inside jokes and not left out. More reason to love this man…

Enrique Iglesias Allstate Arena - Rosemont, ILBefore the show, I had the privilege to take part in a mini press conference backstage with TV, newspaper and magazine reporters. When asked what English speaking artists he would love to duet with in the future, Enrique told us Tom Petty for sure, and of course, Prince. Wondering what Enrique thinks his greatest strength is? That he sees his weaknesses very clearly, which gets him down. But that only makes him work harder with each new day. Believe it or not, Iglesias is just like us! Near the end of “Be With You” he jumped up from the end of the catwalk where he was laying down and actually tripped and fell! Stumbling to an upright position, Iglesias kept on singing like nothing had ever happened and walked right down the runway to finish the song. I always feel so bad for the performer when things like this happen. The last time I saw The Killers, Brandon Flowers fell off a monitor, but didn’t miss a beat. Embarrassing moments like that serve only to reaffirm to the adoring fans that their idol is human and normal – just like them.

Another lucky (very lucky!) fan was brought up on stage for “Hero,” the first song of Enrique’s encore. Taking the girl’s cell phone out of her hands, he placed it in his back pocket and continued to serenade her. By serenade, I mean he caressed her body, kissed her on the lips, grabbed her butt and continuously placed his hand on her heart while singing into her ear. That girl’s life will never be the same again! And last, but not least, Iglesias ended his show with my personal favorite, “Escape.” I love both the English and Spanish versions, and he chose to go with the English. I was in heaven. Make sure that you get to the show early if are going to see Enrique Iglesias on his current tour with Aventura. For the remainder of the tour, he performs first!
