Jerry Rivera & Guests
- How you know Jerry Rivera: as the Puerto Rican salsa singer who burst onto the Latin music scene at the age of 14, earning him the nickname “El Bebé de la Salsa”
- His musical beginnings: singing alongside his parents during their Los Barones Trio concerts; singing with his idol Frankie Ruiz at age 13
- His first hit: “De La Cabeza A Los Pies” (“Head Over Heels”), which showcased his clear tenor, penchant for classic salsa rhythms, and tendency to swoon a lot
- What his third album, Cuenta Conmigo, did: firmly planted his flag on the salsa map by racking up three Platinum Record awards, staying on the Latin American Billboards charts for three months in the No. 1 spot, spawning several hits, and becoming the bestselling salsa album in history to that date
- How this success motivated him: since then, he’s released 17 more albums, earned a Latin Grammy nomination, toured the world, acted in the film I Like It Like That, and served as a judge on Idol Puerto Rico
- His guests: fellow Latin pop sensations Mickey & Joell, 24 Horas, and Fulanito
At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.
