Saturday Night: Luis Miguel At Toyota Center

Luis Miguel Toyota Center June 12, 2011

It's 9:10 p.m. and Luis Miguel struts onstage, all smiles and ego. He's 40 minutes late but nobody, including him, seems to notice.

He launches into "Te Propongo Esta Noche" backed by a band that's got a full horn section of three saxes, three trumpets and two trombones, two drum sets, a percussionist, and two keyboardists, two backup singers... and two Men in Black security guards (more on them later).

Luis Miguel sings ballads, boleros, and "satin pop," - that's smooth Latin pop, kinda like smooth jazz, only not really. Btw, Aftermath just made that term up, so if anybody else uses it, we expect royalties.
