Marc Anthony's Cambio de Piel Tour

With Joey Vega

American Airlines Arena, Miami

Better Than: A night salsa dancing at Mango's.

"Latinos, we always wait to the last minute," joked comedian Joey Vega as los rumberos at the American Airlines Arena waited for el Rey de la Salsa to put on the first of his two-night stand in the 305.

It may have all been a part of Vega's act, but Marc Anthony's opener wasn't kidding about the timing.

With the concert scheduled to start at 8 p.m., Anthony kept his fanáticos, a mix of salsa queens in sparkly skin-tight dresses and pumps of every kind, Abuelas, and papis in white pants, waiting an entire hour-and-a-half for him to make his appearance.
