Pitbull kicked off his Can’t Stop Us Now summer tour late last month with supporting artist Iggy Azalea as the opener.
And on Friday the rappers rolled into Wantagh, New York, for their show at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater, which is the seventh gig on the trek that goes through the US and Canada until October 19.
Fans can catch the Aussie rapper as the special guest until September 4, and then Jamaican dancehall rapper and singer Sean Paul will take over the opening artist slot the rest of the way.
This double billing is a perfect fit for fans of contemporary hip-hop.
Azalea (born Amethyst Amelia Kelly), 32, hit the stage first decked out in purple shorts bodysuit that resembled something from an animation film or series.
The skimpy ensemble, which included matching sleeves that up just past her elbows, hugged her famous curves.
She also strutted her way around the stage dancing and gyrating around the stage in black boots.
Rounding out her overall look, the Aussie star pulled her dyed blonde tresses back into a tight ponytail and a part in the middle.
Azalea has been performing a set list of 14 songs, including her show opener Work, which was followed by other such recognizable hits as Fancy, Black Widow and Problem.
After Izalea rocked the house, it was time for Pitbull, who brought is infectious smile to the stage, decked out in an all-black ensemble consisting of leather jacket over his shiny button-down shirt and vest.
The Miami-based rapper (born Armando Christian Pérez), 41, pretty much stuck to the hits for his portion of the double-billing.
The result was a dance-heavy romp through nearly two decades of club favorites and Latin hip-hop chart-toppers that included Fireball, Echa Pa’lla (Manos Pa’Arriba), I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) and Give Me Everything.
Instead of an intermission, Pitbull took two five-minute breaks, during which his tour DJ IAmChino spun while his six backup dancers, decked out in even skimpier ensembles, entertained the crowd with their fresh moves.
Mr. Worldwide will lead the tour to such cities as San Antonio, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Toronto, Nashville, and Orlando, before wrapping on October 19 in Hollywood, Florida.
Pitbull began his career in the early 2000s, recording reggaeton, Latin hip hop, and crunk music under a multitude of labels.
He would eventually rebrand himself more the the vain of a pop artist with his English-language Planet Pit (2011), which featured his first number one single Give Me Everything (feature Ne-Yo,Afrojack and Nayer).
