Eladio Carrión Takes Over New York’s Theater at MSG: Recap – Billboard

  • by

Surrounded by striking pyrotechnics, amid apocalyptic-like trap and drill beats — punctuated by occasional machine gun sounds — Eladio Carrión made a grand entrance at New York’s Theater in Madison Square Garden.

He was decked out in an outfit reminiscent of Mad Max, rocking a tactical vest and black cargo jeans, with a glimmering B.B. Simon belt. The result was a visual that evoked the image of an urban gladiator stepping onto the stage, an uncanny coincidence considering the superstitious nature of Friday the 13th.

Starting his set at 9:50 p.m., he rallied his ardent fan base, captivating them with a two-hour spectacle that showcased the full spectrum of his career. His performance spanned from the early “SoundCloud days” of Sauce Boyz (2020) to his latest Billboard 200-charting 3MEN2 KBRN, creating a musical journey that left no stone unturned.

His arrival comes one week after he kicked off the second leg of his The Sauce USA tour in Chicago on Oct. 7. The U.S.-born, Puerto Rican rapper expressed his excitement about performing at the legendary Manhattan venue: “You are all here for my first big show in New York at Madison Square Garden. This is a very special day,” he told the audience, reminiscing just a few years ago when he performed in nightclubs.

The enthusiasm was palpable throughout the entire show. It was a mutual exchange of energy with his passionate fanbase, making the performance a memorable one. Presented by Live Nation, Carrión’s tour stops include Las Vegas (Oct. 21), San Diego (Oct. 29), Seattle (Nov. 5) and more before wrapping up Nov. 11 in Miami. 

Here are five takeaways from the trap star’s Sauce Boyz show at The Theater at MSG.
