The Time of Our Lives


Olivia Brown, Sports Editor

The strobe and dance lights brought the stadium of 25,000 people roaring as the music began to start. Pitbull walked out as smoke blasted into the air, and kicked off the concert with one of his most famous songs, “Don’t Stop the Party”. The song people would normally expect to hear at a high school party sounds even better live, as concert-goers danced away with friends. Sweating, laughing, and singing, many Titans had a blast at the Pitbull concert.

Pitbull came to San Diego to perform at the North Island Credit Union Amphitheater On Sept. 21. Australian rapper Iggy Azalea opened the show and performed one of her most popular songs, “Fancy.” Her performance definitely got everyone excited for Pitbull to bring the party to stage as fans waited patiently for him to arrive. 

With seating all throughout the stadium and the back lawn, general admission was packed with teenagers as if it was its own rager since tickets were only $30. The young crowd brought mosh pits, chanting, and tons of dancing to the concert. 

Various food trucks let fans take a break and grab a taco, or get some cotton candy. Everything fit Pitbull’s style, even the Liquid Death water, but it was hard to walk away from all the fun. Pitbull played some of my favorite throw backs such as “On the Floor” and “Dj’s Got Us Falling in Love,” along with his most popular songs “Feel This Moment,” “Timber,” and “Fireball”. 

He also included Latin hip-hop songs from his album Armando such as my favorites “Echa Pa’lla” and “Bon Bon.” The entire performance was enticing as dancers constantly surrounded Pitbull even as smoke or fire was shot into the air. 

The show ended with “Time of our Lives,” one of his most treasured songs as tons of confetti shot into the air and strobe lights illuminated the smiling faces of his fans. 

Although the Chula Vista Amphitheater has the worst parking and took us hours to leave, Mr. World Wide was worth it.
