Julio Iglesias at the Count Basie Theatre in NJ.

Julio Iglesias gave a magnificent performance at the Count Basie Theatre in the Red Bank of New Jersey.

I was sitting in the 4th row, really close to Julio.

The show included three female singers and Tango dancers.

He entertained the audience who packed this fully refurbished facility. Some 1,500 of us applauded the most important and celebrated Hispanic singer in the world.

He joked around saying something like: “You know, I’m now 47. Ok, ok, 51… [laughter] Ok, what I’m trying to say is that when I was very young; just a couple of years ago. I used to make love before the show so I would provide a great show; the problem now is, unfortunately, if I make love before the show, I cannot make the show. So, basically today, I make love while I make the show, and you pay me for it.

You Americans have everything. In Ukraine for example, there are only Ukrainians, but around here, everybody comes form somewhere else”

What an incredibly amazing coincidence that he chose to talk about Ukraine when he could’ve talked about any other country. I attended the show with my Ukrainian girlfriend who enjoyed the show as much as I did.

Julio continues to be as good as he ever was and has always been. He’s absolutely the best!

Menkes in New York City

Since I started taking my Flamenco and Sevillanas dancing classes, I knew that I would have to get these theatrical shoes so that I could make a tangible progress.

I had to go all the way to New York City to buy them since they aren’t available in Philly. They were custom made for me. Now that I’ve made the expense I need to make sure they make it worth my while at it.

I took advantage of the short trip by paying a visit to the Empire State Building. Although, I was bullied for wearing this t-shirt by the New Yorkers who want to beat the Phillies in the World Series.

Donna Summer in Atlantic City

Well this time it was Donna Summer ‘s turn who gave a great concert tonight in Atlantic City.

I witnessed first hand the birth of her leyend. I have all her albums, and have been a loyal fan since 1976.

Donna was considered “The Queen of Disco“, what an era. This is the second time I see her live, and it really brings me back into those great memories!

I can still hear her superb voice and her way of interacting with her audience kept us entertained for the whole 90 minutes, mixing some of her greatest hits, with the ones from her latest album: “Crayons”.

What a great performance! Truly, The Queen is back!

This has been by far the best well behaved fans I’ve ever seen!

Katy Perry at the Borgata

I got to see Katy Perry live at the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ.

What a nice performance. The whole audience loved it! I just love her voice and charisma. She kept us well entertained for 90 minutes performing her whole repertoire. The show is well organized and structured.

I think she’ll become one of the big ones some day. She promised us to make a new record really soon. Let’s see!

You wouldn’t believe it if I told you, the attention I got from a lousy T-shirt. Man, that felt good. I managed to make some new friends, though.

Everybody really had a lot of fun!
