Mon Laferte Brings Her Avant-garde Latino Pop Show to MSG

Mon Laferte’s success has skyrocketed in the past few years, building a strong and loyal fanbase. She is also soon to have a documentary released about her life via Netflix on August 1st. With a tour underway across Latin American and now North America, she arrived to a near sold out theater at MSG on Tuesday May 7th with opening act, Mexican singer-songwriter Ximena Sariñana. Although an opener, Sariñana has a long trajectory in both film and music, acting in Spanish language cult classics like “Amarte Duele.” Sariñana opened the show to a group of receptive fans who danced and clapped along to her songs.

Mon Laferte’s presence made the venue erupt in cheers. Fans greeted Laferte dressed up in outfits such as a torn up wedding dresses and Laferte’s signature black and red outfits. For two hours, Mon played all her greatest hits including “Amor Completo,” “Si Me Quisieras,” Mi Buen Amor,” “Amarrame,” and “Tu Falta De Querer.” She also invited her opener, Ximena Sariñana, on stage to perform two of her favorite songs of Sariñana’s. At points during the show, fans were so loud, Laferte allowed them to sing the song for her. The fans made the venue resound and shake with their outpouring of love and admiration for Laferte.
