“Let’s forget that it’s Monday today and have fun like if it was a Friday night,” Fonseca told his fans at the Billboard En Vivo concert last night (April 4) — and that is exactly what the audience did.
The lively crowd danced and sang for two hours straight at the Avalon in Hollywood where the Colombian singer/songwriter performed his greatest hits such as “Arroyito,” “Vine a Buscarte,” and “Conexión.” From vallenatos to ballads to pop songs, Fonseca made sure to start the first concert of his Conexión Tour in the United States right.
“There is no better city than the magical city of Los Angeles to kick off my tour,” said the “Eres Mi Sueño” singer as the crowd cheered and welcomed him to the city waving flags from his native Colombia.
His band wasn’t the only ensemble that accompanied him on stage. In the middle of the concert, Fonseca brought out a Mariachi band to sing the Mexican classic “El Rey,” showing off his versatile musical abilities.
Performing for another hour or so, he ended the night with his song “Te Mando Flores,” a fan favorite that left everyone wishing it was actually Friday night so the rumba wouldn’t come to an end.
