Marc Anthony brought his Opus tour to Atlantic City Hard Rock casino Saturday, January 25, 2020. The tour is in support of his latest album Opus his first studio album in six years.
The concert was supposed to start at 8pm. On this night Marc Anthony proved why after 30 years in the music business he is still one of the best entertainers in the music business. The one-hour wait was well worth it. The later the party starts the better it is. Marc Anthony concert was no exception.
Marc Anthony knows how to get the crowd warmed up and excited. Shortly after 9pm the house lights went down. Marc Anthony and his 16-piece band gave the fans a night to remember. Marc Anthony wore many hats throughout the evening singer, music conductor, and drummer. It was a night to celebrate life and his music. During the show Marc took a moment to wish his guitarist a happy birthday and a couple got engaged during the show.
He had the crowd on his every word. I have been to many shows. It is rare to witness an entertainer who can deliver song for song and have the audience on their feet for the whole show.
I have never seen people salsa dancing on the isles and after a while even security could not help but move their hips. Seeing a Marc Anthony concert, you are witnessing one of the best entertainers. I didn’t know what to expect coming to a Marc Anthony concert, I had never seen him live. Even in the YouTube era there is nothing like being there in person witnessing the energy, excitement, how he can seduce a crowd. One thing to give Marc Anthony credit for is his live performance. There are no backing tapes. This is why he has a 16-piece band. It would be easy to bring backing tracks. Marc Anthony knows better he respects and loves the fans enough to instead bring a full backing band.
