The Euphoria singer didn’t take long to get the entire crowd on their feet while descending on Georgia’s Black Sea resort town of Batumi. He made an impression fans won’t soon forget.
Dressed in jeans with a silver chain, double T’s, his signature shaped baseball cap and a cloth band on his left hand, Iglesias, played host to MTV’s first event - MTV Live Georgia, an open-air concert in the city’s historic Europe Square on a night filled with music, spectacle and drama on August 2.
Making his first ever visit to the region, the Latin singer electrified the crowds with his high- octane performance and surprising grasp of the Georgian language. The singer made a special flight directly to Batumi all the way from Australia to perform for Georgian music lovers midway through his Euphoria tour.
The Latino heartthrob and global superstar, 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, entertained 10,000 music fans in Georgia and wowed the crowed for an hour and a half with a sizzling set list combining the most stunning tracks from his 2010 Spanish/English album release Euphoria including the monster hit I Like It the Nicole Scherzinger collaboration Heartbeat, as well as classic tracks from his greatest hits catalogue including crowd pleasers like Hero and Be With You.
Despite a light drizzle at the beginning of the evening, Iglesias kept temperatures soaring with his energetic performance, keeping the audience singing along on every song.
The response was overwhelming:
Nutsa, 20, a music fan told Georgia Today after the concert: “Yes, I touched Enrique Iglesias and attended his live concert; I am in a shock, I will never forget this day in my life.”
