Last night Ricky Martin brought his Musica Almo Sexo Tour to the Mohegan Sun Arena. Last minute, I decided to go as a gift to myself for getting my Alexa ranking under 1 million.
Tickets said the show was set to start at 7, so I made sure to get in line to be let in at 6pm because Get Glue has a special sticker just for those attending Ricky’s concert and I wanted to make sure I figured out how to get it! I quickly found a banner which had a QR code on it and I was instructed to scan it and check in to get the sticker. I scanned it, but wasn’t awarded a sticker… (I have contacted Get Glue Support to see what is going on!)
Ricky had no opener and didn’t take the stage until closer to 8pm. I am not sure if the set list I got is 100% correct – I found it on a website before I went and checked it now and then and it seemed to be accurate, but I am not totally familiar with all of Ricky’s stuff. (And I don’t speak or understand much spanish)
The stage had 2 cat walks that went up into sections 14 and 26. (Which is probably why there were no last minute tickets in that section – I was in the back in section 22.) The main stage had a big metal tic-tac-toe board set up. The show started with Ricky in the middle spot and then after a song or two he fell from the spot into his dancer’s arms who were waiting for him on the stage.
The show was a lot of fun (though I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who is bothered by strobe lights – the lights were really intense at points) and a great mix of some of Ricky’s more up beat singles and slower songs. I also liked how during 2 of the breaks we got to know a little bit more about one of Ricky’s dancers and musicians.
I had a lot of fun and was wanting to see Ricky since 1999, so I am glad that I finally got the chance. He puts on a great show and so obviously loves what he does – he has a smile on his face nearly the whole show!
