J.Lo fizzles while Marc Anthony sizzles at American Airlines Center

POP REVIEW: In her first tour, J.Lo fizzles while hubby Marc Anthony sizzles
12:00 AM CDT on Wednesday, October 31, 2007
By MARIO TARRADELL / The Dallas Morning News

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez may be basking in wedded unity, but artistically the pair sits on opposite ends of the creative spectrum.

That couldn't have been more apparent Tuesday night before 8,000 fans at American Airlines Center. The double bill between husband and wife, call them J.Lo and her M.An, sure was splashy and eye-popping for markedly different reasons.Let's start with Mr. Anthony, who took the stage first with a slamming 14-member band that included a percussionist, a horn section, background vocalists and an electric-piano player. For 70 minutes (he ran 20 minutes overtime) the Nuyorican delivered fiery salsa tracing much of his musical career.

Tellingly he sang only two songs in English, his crossover hits "I Need to Know" and "You Sang to Me." He also opened and closed with staples by the late Hector Lavoe, "Aguanile" and "Mi Gente." Mr. Anthony portrays Mr. Lavoe in the recent biopic El Cantante.

If anything, he could have excised those two Anglo numbers. Mr. Anthony was born to sing salsa. His voice remains strong, pliable and full of verve. He can hit notes, stretch them and then glide with the groove effortlessly. His stage stance is vintage salsero. The smooth, passionate, showy mannerisms come from a sadly departed era. But he remembers.

He's got confidence to spare and a wiry allure that mixes sexuality with spirituality. During scorchers such as "Y Hubo Alguien," "Valio la Pena" and "Te Conozco Bien" Mr. Anthony made salsa universal. No matter what your nationality, the connection to an explosion of syncopated rhythms and rugged, emotional vocals should be immediate.

I attended the Marc Anthony & J Lo concert this past weekend in DC and I have never experienced such bliss!! I am Hispanic, mom from Spain-dad from Cuba...raised in Ct and in Caracas and I come from a very musical family. Marc Anthony should truly be placed in the GUINESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS as the best performer ever to exist. Not only is he humble, passionate and intense - he is a genius at what he does. He sings and dances effortlessly. Es una divinura de hombre y de cantante. "Duerme a uno" ("He numbs you, sleeps you", as Boricuas say). J Lo was great as well but you cannot compare her voice with his. She is a much better dancer and actor than singer. Don't get me wrong, I love her!! At the end, when they sang the 2 songs together to close, it's as if magic were ocurring....these 2 really belong together 'endito!!! I recall seeing an interview many, many yrs. ago on "El Show de Cristina" (which I do not like at all, I just happened to be channel surfing late at night) and upon seeing them talk about No Me Ames, I said "these 2 belong together, hmm". Well, as expected they are indeed together and what lovely vibes they exude. Congrats to all involved in the concert .... son unos barbaros, de verdad! I have seen many artists and shows in my time both, here in Miami as in Caracas (a musical and cultural mecca) and I have NEVER seen anything like this concert! FELICIDADES, DE VERDAD - se merecen muchas cosas hermosas. And blessings to the baby-to-be. :)

Lopez, Anthony sparkle in duets, dance
By Kevin L. Carter
For The Inquirer

When Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony got together for their penultimate tune, "Por Arriesgarnos," during their Marc G. Etess Arena show at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City Saturday night, two things were apparent: how much Anthony outclasses his honey as a singer, and the mad passion this Boricua power couple have for each other.

Lopez and Anthony have all the ingredients needed to cement their place in Latin and crossover stardom forever: looks (Jennifer), brains (both, but Marc says Jen is the boss), and talent (Marc).

It was obvious, though, that onstage, especially in the duets with her marido, Lopez looked happy, centered, and content with her life, and especially her life with her husband. Either that's how things really are, or she's a really good actress (and she's never been accused of that before).

Lopez, who performed for the second half of the show before joining her hubby at the end, produced a slick, stylized show drawing from everything from Latin pop (her album Como Ama Una Mujer, released this year) to hip-hop. Her dancing was precise, if a bit subdued - no Fly Girl tricks for her at 39 - but her singing was mousy (she had electronic help on a couple tracks) and uninspiring.

Anthony definitely has skills - he's got an elastic, clear tenor, excellent control, and a knack for drawing the audience to him - and his show focused heavily on the Spanish-language tropical salsa material that made him a star long before he and Lopez ever became an item.
