Manny Cruz thanked Mark Anthony and to SD Concerts for the opportunity and invited the audience to lend a helping hand to those affected by the passage of Hurricane Fiona and dedicated the song “I’m complete” to them.

Among the iconic songs were: “El tiburon” by Proyecto Uno, “Fiesta y fiesta” by Dioni Fernández, “Merenguero hasta la tambora” by Johnny Ventura, “When I step on Dominican land” by Fernando Villalona, among others.

“Pa’lla voy” was the song with which “El flaco” began his one hour and 20 minute show.

“Valió la pena” from the album “Amar sin Mentas” (2004), “And there was someone”, “Until yesterday” were chanted at the top of their lungs by those present, imbuing them with the same feeling with which the Puerto Rican interprets them.

I’m home”. He followed up with “Flor pálida” from the album “2.0” released in 2014, which he described as “his favorite of his”.
