Venue: Mohgean Sun Arena, Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncaseville, Connecticut-Thursday June 28, 2018
Armando Christian Perez aka Pitbull, aka Mr Worldwide, came to Mohegan Sun with the promise to give the sold out arena the time of their life and he did not disappoint. From the minute Pitbull hits the stage it’s a non stop party. Switching back and forth from English to Spanish through the night, Pitbull made sure everyone was up singing and dancing along with him.
Backed by the same fantastic band he has played with for 15 years Pitbull isn’t shy when he is surrounded by his troupe of lovely lady dance partners. Super high energy and oozing raw sexuality as his trademark, Mr. Worldwide and his band of beauties heat up the stage with their latin inspired dancing.
His relentless work ethic has transformed Pitbull into a Grammy winning global superstar and business entrepreneur. In addition to music, Pitbull’s many aspirations include acting, modeling, his own line of premium vodkas, as well as premier fragrances for men and women simply titled Pitbull.
His latest project, John Travolta’s “Gotti”, marks Pitbull’s first assignment scoring a motion picture soundtrack. The soundtrack includes three solo Pitbull’s tracks, one of them being the single “Amore” featuring Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Leona Lewis.
Pitbull is also a motivator, his music being both fun and sexy while being inspirational, and all inclusive. Throughout the night he stopped to speak to the younger people in the audience, offering them positive advice on friendship, and imploring them to put down their cell phones and go out into the world and do something fantastic.
With the confetti cannons blasting away, Pitbull exited the stage to thunderous applause, confirming, as promised, that everyone had “The Time of Their Life”!
With his years of experience and passion for Concert Photography, Mike has photographed many of the famous acts in the world today.
Rock Icons such as Sting, Peter Gabriel, Dave Matthews, and Fleetwood Mac along with Country artist Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney,and Jason Aldean have all appeared before Mike’s camera.
"My goal is always to present the experience truthfully so fans can feel the energy and emotions the Artists convey. It’s a tremendous honor and responsibility to be allowed to create art while blending my two passions, music and photography”
