Originally his concert was scheduled for September 20, but due to the devastating earthquake that occurred a day earlier in the center and south of the country, it had been postponed until further notice.
Not only did he fulfill his promise to return, but he made another at the end of his dynamic presentation on Saturday: returning to Mexico in early 2018. The Puerto Rican star gave his local fans one more reason to applaud him.
“I will start next year here in Mexico,” Martin said, after which he received an ovation. “I will be visiting Puerto Vallarta where I am going to film my next video and that wonderful land has to be seen by everyone”, he added before playing the last chords of “La mordidita”.
“A lot of peace, a lot of love, a lot of Fuerza México!”, said the Puerto Rican pop star during the concert, using a phrase that became a motto of struggle and hope shortly after the earthquake.
At the beginning he asked the audience: “I want everyone to forget the problems at work, at home, problems in the country and tonight we fly, tonight we are happy and tonight we leave from here without a voice from so much singing and all sweat from so much dancing “.
