Last Night: Juanes At Toyota Center

Juanes, Antonio Orozco Toyota Center March 30, 2011

Right on cue at 8 p.m., the Toyota Center house lights go down and the show starts, although instead of Juanes, it's Antonio Orozco that takes the stage. That was the first tease of the evening, and a foreshadowing of the many more to come before the end of the night.

With nothing more than a guitar, a chair and a floodlight, Orozco sang a few tunes and was off the stage by 8:18, but one woman in the audience was already losing it, yelling so loudly during his set her friend changes seats to get away.

Juanes' fans were visibly excited and ready for him to show his face, but it would be 40 minutes before the 17-time Latin Grammy winner finally greets the Houston audience - tease No. 2, the classic "Keep 'Em Waiting."
