It’s often said that what matters is the singer, not the song, which is why audiences are still moved by Bing Crosby’s rendition of “99 Bottles of Beer.” Savor a voice that could sing the phone book with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $30, you get one reserved bench ticket in seats A–D and T–V to see Marc Anthony at Viejas Arena at SDSU on Thursday, September 22, at 8 p.m. (a $49 value before fees, or up to a $62 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Marc Anthony, an influential instigator of the Latin-pop explosion who has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide, struts with unabashed showmanship and rhythmic savvy on his 2011 tour. A skilled songwriter, actor, and partial Miami Dolphins kingpin, Marc has singed the charts since a microphone met his lips, scoring multiple Grammy awards and laudatory thunderbolts on his rise to become the one of the world’s top-selling salsa artists. Taking a break from his fuzz-based duties on TNT’s HawthoRNe, Marc gets castanets clicking in a set that mixes dance numbers with ballads from his latest album Iconos. Like an overdose of energy sandwiches, Marc’s panache-filled shows are notorious for inciting levitation among dancing revelers, and his dreamy, omnipotent voice stirs tender feelings in even the most calcified of hearts.
