The apple didn't seem big enough to fit all the people coming for both Ivete Sangalo's get down at the MSG and the Brazilian festival on the following day. Tonight, Brazil's greatest diva shakes things up around the Garden in an one night event before going to Toronto and work it there. Tomorrow, 46th street - or Little Brazil if you will - become stage to Zezé Di Camargo & Luciano, Carlinhos Brown, Luciano Huck and Margareth Menezes, among others. Besides the live gigs, food huts with tradiotional Brazilian dishes will be all around the place.
The Madison Square Garden is sold out for Sangalo's show later today. A few other artists, such as David Guetta, are expected to show up. However, one should be ready for high profile cameos like the likes of Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. Plus, she is known for putting on a wonderful live experience. Doors open at 7pm.
As for the Brazilian Day, the formula continues the same. Tons of food, big concerts and nine kinds of crowded. It starts mid-morning going on until nightime. Come early for shorter lines and better spots. The "tupiniquim" haps occur mainly on 46th street, between 5th and 6th avenues.
Is Brazil taking over the Island? Well, at least for the weekend, it is. Don't miss it.
