Pitbull and Iglesias set for Coliseum party

He has collaborated on projects with everyone from Shakira and Jennifer Lopez to Christina Aguilera and the Yin Yang twins. This mega selling Booty bass-infused Latin rapper has topped the charts with songs like “I know You Want Me (Calle Ocho),” “Timber” and “Give Me Everything,” among others. Perhaps you will remember him from the films “La Gasolina: Reggaeton Explosion” and “Blood Money,” released in 2012. Though the name may seem ferocious, his bark is much worse than his bite. Of course, the only person who could fit that bill is the inimitable Grammy Award winning artist Pitbull.

The “Back in Time” singer has just announced plans for a Nassau Coliseum show that will take place on Sun., Sept. 14, 2014. As if that was not enough, co-headlining on the bill is fellow Miamian and “Sex and Love” crooner, Enrique Iglesias. No matter what the weather is like outside, it should prove to be a steamy night in Uniondale.

What Coliseum goers can expect

Pre-tour reports indicate Pitbull and Iglesias have planned for an unforgettable concert event. How do they expect to pull it off? With “a stage design” that will “offer fans an immersive experience,” according to popcrush.com. It all seems a bit puzzling. Nevertheless, Coliseum goers will be dancing and swaying to the sounds of Miami by the time Pitbull and Enrique are done. Of course, when an extraordinary show like this comes around, fans cannot help but wonder if any special guests will be stopping by. There has been no word yet on any other potential surprises.

Both Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias have tremendous crossover appeal. Yes, that was Iglesias you may have spotted in the television series “How I Met Your Mother” and “Two and a Half Men.” And do you remember how Pitbull sampled Mickey and Sylvia’s 50s classic “Love is Strange” for the movie blockbuster “Men in Black 3.” There is no doubt that these two entertainment giants transcend their Miami music connections; they have a larger global appeal. If Pitbull and Enrique are in town, you know there is going to be a party. In that case, why not have it at the Nassau Coliseum?
