Maná "Drama Y Luz" World Tour 2011 at the Patriot Center
While many in the District were celebrating Bastille Day, there was a different kind of rocking party altogether in Fairfax as the three-time Grammy winning Mana brought their record setting arena tour to the sold-out Patriot Center. Widely regarded as the most sought after ticket in all of Latin music, and recently coming off of four-straight sold out shows at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, the concert lived up to its billing as one of the must-see shows of 2011, regardless of language. The show was in support of Maná’s new album “Drama y Luz” (Drama & Light)—and the band thrilled the crowd with its powerful ballads and beautifully backlit stage. The stunning stage set the mood for each of their performances such as their current No. 1 hit “Lluvia al Corazón” (images of hearts beating and rain falling as the colors in the backdrop changed after each stanza). A truly epic performance that left the crowd enthralled well after the 2.5 hour set.
