Neither the heat of Guayaquil, nor the faults in the sound were an impediment for Cristian castro give himself completely to his Ecuadorian public, during his concert at the Guayaquil Convention Center the night of Wednesday, September 28, where a massive audience sang and danced to their greatest hits such as Angel, Blue, Happy Rooster, among others.
With about 10 minutes to go before 9:00 p.m., the Mexican artist made his appearance on the stage installed in the place to open the concert with a pop version of After you what?. The attendees were able to see up close her particular yellow dress with flowery embroidery that she used in the first program of the reality show Argentine ‘Sing with me now’, hosted by Marcelo Tinelli.
“How are you Ecuador? How’s it going?”, he asked in the first minutes of his speech.
“It makes me very happy to be in Ecuador, thank you for receiving me, for loving me”expressed the Mexican before interpreting his well-known song Love Y Angel.
Before paying his tribute to John Gabriel with the song I’m in love with you, He made a small revelation in reference to the thermal sensation with which the city of Buenos Aires received him. “How beautiful is this heat here!”, he affirmed and said that a tequila would be good to assimilate it. His homage to ‘Divo de Juárez’ accompanied him with songs like I have come to ask you for forgiveness, With your love, either I still love you.
Cumbia took the place, when Castro sang happy rooster, but his interpretation was not done alone, he invited about 10 fans to share this popular song with him, which made more than one dance at the Convention Center. A woman dressed as a rooster and others in a yellow tutu skirt danced with their idol “Up Ecuador”, said the interpreter while dancing with his fans. In conversation with this newspaper, the artist’s fan club confessed that at all the concerts they attend, one of them always dresses as a rooster. “A joy to have shared the stage with him”said the president of the club.
It was followed by other topics that made the attendees vibrate, such as I can’t tear you away from me, It’s better this way, New water, Y Love me again. And after an hour of his show, the heat won him over and he decided to take off his flowered jacket to sing raining stars, a theme with which his first vocal efforts began to be noticed, in which it was difficult for him to achieve some falsettos.
The flaws in the sound were present throughout the show, which revealed a Cristian Castro struggling to reach some notes, while trying to recover the energy consumed every time he danced or jumped on stage. And it is that the Mexican did not allow these technical setbacks to ruin his reunion with the Guayaquil assistance, to which he asked on more than one occasion: “Do you hear me well there?”
“The voice of Cristian Castro is so spectacular, that it could not be that he had to hear the noise above his voice”, said one of the people in the audience at the end of the concert.
Castro also remembered the singer-songwriter joseph to josephon the occasion of his third anniversary of death this Wednesday, October 28. “Unfortunately today marks the 3rd anniversary of the death of José José, I want a round of applause for him”Castro expressed, before beginning his tribute to the ‘Prince of Song’. This tribute had themes such as The sad Y What was not will not be.
Not only did these tributes take him back to his home country, but also the warmth he felt from his audience. “I love being here, I feel at home. I feel like in Mexico.” declared.
Suddenly, a young man who during the concert raised a yellow sign that said: “I want to sing with you”, saw his dream come true when on the same stage he sang The best of me, with Castro. It was Luciano Maza, a fan of the singer since childhood. The issue was closed with a hug between the two and a “thank you very much”, by Castro.
The show continued with other songs like No need, that’s how she was, Y I wanted, song with which the public exploded with emotion. Some of his fans wore headbands with his name on them, while others held signs dedicated to Castro; some had gone alone, others in a group of friends, while some couples accompanied the romantic touch of Castro.
The staging was simple, with screens that alternated background animations. He was accompanied on stage by a saxophonist, a keyboardist, a drummer, two guitarists and two backing vocalists.
The last minutes of his show were dedicated to performing songs like For loving you like this, to love again, Azul, Y Will not be able. And before saying goodbye to the stage, he danced and jumped a little more, proudly showed the Ecuadorian flag, took a rag to wipe the sweat from his forehead, threw it to someone in the audience and left, when it was approximately 10:50 p.m.
