Alert La Familia! There’s a Marc Anthony Livestream Concert Coming in April

Marc Anthony will be putting on a live stream concert for his fans in April. The Nuyorican icon announced the news this week about his upcoming show Marc Anthony: One Night Only.

Anthony wants to entertain his fans from a safe distance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Life has changed us…undoubtedly,” Anthony said in a statement. “But music is still a tethering wire for us all. It allows us to continue maintaining the illusion, love, and joy alive. And although for safety reasons we cannot be face-to-face yet, I am sure this concert will create an incredible magic that will allow me to connect with my audience, wherever they are, and with all those who need a touch of my music to move forward, to maintain the passion for life.”

With hits like “Vivir Mi Vida” and the ’90s classic “I Need to Know,” there will be a lot more than “moving forward” going on during a Marc Anthony show. The salsa music giant will definitely have our parents, tías, and abuelas getting down to his songs in the living room. We’ll be up in the mix too.

Don’t miss it because the show will be “One Night Only.”

Marc Anthony: One Night Only will be live-streamed worldwide on April 17. The concert will be directed by Grammy Award-winning director Carlos Perez, who shot the music videos for “Despacito” and “Vivir Mi Vida.” Magnus Studios is producing the live stream event.

“At Magnus Studios, we have set out to create unique content and entertainment experiences for worldwide audiences,” said Felipe Pimiento, Magnus COO and head of Magnus Studios, in a statement. “Music is in our DNA and this will mark the first of many music content productions in our production pipeline. We couldn’t be prouder than starting with our own, Marc Anthony, to set the stage for what’s to come.”

Fans can buy tickets now to Marc Anthony: One Night Only at his official website here. Anthony made history back in September when his 3.0 album became the first salsa LP to be certified Diamante in the U.S.

Ben Affleck & Marc Anthony Spoke Frankly About J.LO And My Nostalgic Aughts-Self Is Giving A Toast

Sony Pictures

No doubt, as the Latina Queen of Hollywood, Jennifer Lopez has played the better half of quite a few relationships and not just on-screen. From Diddy, formerly known as Puff Daddy and P Diddy, to Casper Smart Lopez has been The Strong Woman behind some pretty well-known men.

Her exes Marc Anthony (whom J.L o shares twins Emme and Max, 13 with) and Ben Affleck know it, and in a recent interview, they opened up about what they really think of her.

For her recent May cover of InStyle magazine, Lopez’s feature story included insights from her former loves Anthony and Affleck on everything from her drive to her ageless beauty.

In honor of the singer and actor’s 30-year run in the entertainment industry, the magazine featured her and her most prolific exes. For the interview, both Anthony and Affleck commented on Lopez’s character, heart, and business savvy. “The thing about Jennifer is her ability to see and understand things before they happen,” Anthony, explained in his interview.

Anthony, a singer and actor who starred in the 2001 film In the Time of the Butterflies was married to Lopez from 2004 to 2014.

“Before she even brings an idea up, she has visualized it a thousand times. And if anyone says it might not be the greatest idea, she’ll say, ‘You just don’t see it yet.’ Nine times out of 10, she’ll nail it. She’s the first one in the room and the last to leave. The hardest worker I’ve ever met,” Anthony went onto share. “When we were together, it was quite the opposite for me. That has changed since. I learned so much from her. She’s the original!”

Affleck who dated J.LO in 2002 and starred alongside her in the films “Gigli” and “Jersey Girl” also spoke openly about Lopez.

“I thought I had a good work ethic, but I was completely humbled and blown away by what she was committed to doing day in and day out, the seriousness in which she took her work, the quiet and dedicated way she went about accomplishing her goals, and then how she would go back and redouble her efforts,” Affleck, whose romance with Lopez earned him the other part of the nickname “Bennifer” by the media, explained.

“She remains, to this day, the hardest-working person I’ve come across in this business,” he revealed, “She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”

At one point Affleck commented, relatably, that he felt J.Lo appeared as if she hadn’t aged since they dated.

“Where are you keeping the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it kind of looks like I’m in my 40s…at best?” he joked.

Prince Royce Reflects on Last Arena Concert Before COVID-19 Shutdown: See the Photos

EMILIO SANCHEZ

It’s officially been a year since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared a national emergency in the U.S. Prince Royce was one of the artists to put on a final arena concert before all major live events in the country were canceled. Here’s a look back at that concert.

Prince Royce and Billie Eilish played the last arena shows.

Rolling Stone identified Prince Royce, Billie Eilish, Post Malone, and Lauren Dangle as the artists to host the last large-scale shows in the U.S. on March 12, 2020. A day later, President Donald Trump declared the Coronavirus a “national emergency.” All live entertainment was suspended soon after as each state put in place stay-at-home orders.

Prince Royce was the very start of his Alter Ego tour supporting his double-album of the same name. The first show kicked off on March 4 in Seattle. For his sixth concert at The Forum in Los Angeles, the Dominican-American pop star had the choice to cancel it like the rest of his tour or go on with the show. He opted for the latter as one last hurrah that culminated with the 10th anniversary of his music career.

A year later, Royce reflected on that final show and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Exactly a year after that final show, Prince Royce reflected on the ongoing pandemic on Instagram. He also shared a few photos from the concert at The Forum. In one of them, Royce is blowing an air kiss to his adoring fans.  

“Exactly a year ago at The Forum I sang to them in concert for the last time without knowing that we would be distanced for so long,” he wrote in Spanish. “They don’t know how much I miss them!!!!!! I have faith that if we continue to take care of ourselves, very soon we will be singing and having fun together again.”

Prince Royce also released a behind-the-scenes video of that final show.

“A year later we continue the fight against the pandemic, but each day we’re more closer to be able to hug each other again and to sing live to you,” he continued. “See you very soon.”

There are more photos of the show exclusively here.

Prince Royce was also kind enough to share a few more photos of The Forum show with mitú. All photo credits to Emilio Sanchez.
