GOOD, NOT HIS BEST WORK THOUGH
So this would be the fifth time I have seen Marc Anthony live. My wife is Central American, so I know many of the Spanish only songs, and unlike other reviewers, believe that is his best work. Show started at 10:16PM, with a ticket face time of 9PM. Previous times we have seen him i have been in awe and have commented on what a professional entertainer he is. A latin Frank Sinatra, all business. This time though, I felt he let the audience sing too much of many of the choruses of the songs. As the show went on though, it was as if he fed off the energy of the crowd, and it got better as it progressed. From reading other reviews, his encore has been Vivir Mi Vida. In Dallas we got treated to two songs, "Tu Amor Me Hace Bien", and "Vivir Mi Vida". The encore was worth it, and you could see he was impressed by the crowds adulation after the first song. He should fire his sound crew though. Instrumentals were set too high and drowned out his voice at times.

MARC ANTHONY ORLANDO CONCERT LESS THAN FAIR
The concert started a hour and half late . The sound was poor . He did not even care to interact with crowd - none of the pop songs were song . Needless to say I will never attend another one of his concerts.

I've caught several of his shows in the past and this recent performance left much to be desired. The sound was terrible. It seemed as if at times he stopped singing or his voice was not audible. There were also lengthy gaps between songs that left you wondering what was going on. There were too many moments when he would just inexplicable gaze out into the crowd waiting for I don't what.. Lastly, and a cardinal sin in my opinion, he would have the crowd sing half the song. I did not spend money to hear the crowd's version of any song. I paid to hear him sing. Very disappointed..

So the presentation and setup was cool and marc is a good performer.. however, 1. He was very late 2. He didn’t play any of the popular songs, old or new. Only sang salsa songs that all sounded very similar. 3. CRAZY LOUD!! The subwoofer or base and speakers were so loud that it pounded your heart and shook your whole body. Felt scary. Didn’t like that and I’m young, imagine the older people... anyways the audience was awesome, everybody dancing.

MARC ANTHONY IN TO
This is my first time attending a Marc Anthony’s concert. My sister and I are concert junkies and this year (2019) a lot of Latin artists have come to Toronto, Canada - which has been a blessing. We were very excited for MA concert however he disappointed us. Tickets said 8pm and he came out after 9:30pm, Scotiabank arena was packed and he didn’t sing an entire song alone, the public did most of the job. Also, he appeared to be tired, or intoxicated. He sang for only one hour and did not interact with the public as a singer of his caliber could be expected. We attended last month Mana’s concert and although Fer was sick they sang for almost two hours and Mana gave an spectacular concert. As other comments here, there was no show per say. Get it together Marc! Tickets were $175 so not cheap at all!

He's a great artist, no one can say differe t. However expectation is hig, he needs to understands that. 1 1/2 hr concert, i simply bot enough. Based on most reviews on this site, that's what you can expecy when performing in the US, Miami being LATAM back yard, didn't scape from those very short 90 mins.

Once again, seemed to be pure salsa review. Blasting and blaring brass sections, played over singing. Played absolutely no bilingual or English favorites. Came out one hour and half late, after a comedian and younger talent. Performed for about 1 1/2 and seemed to encourage the audience to do most of the singing. I was dying to hear his ballads and his true voice, but the blaring accompaniments diminished everything. Had one scene with invited guest Wyclef Jean which was phenomenal. Also his drummer and guitarist did length solos which were truly excellent. But as for the singer, himself, what a disappointment. At times just seemed silly.
