The drone that was flying around the stage at Saturday night’s Enrique Iglesias concert in Tijuana, Mexico was actually a part of the show, used to show different aerial shots of the stage and crowd on the big screens.
What the drone isn’t supposed to do is injure the star performer but that’s exactly what happened when Iglesias grabbed it as it flew by. Latching on to the wrong part, Enrique’s fingers were badly sliced but, the show must go on and, so he ran to the side of the stage and had the fingers bandaged. According to sources and pictures from the scene, Iglesias stayed on stage for another 30 minutes and, by the time it was over, his shirt was covered with blood.
Enrique was flown to Los Angeles right after the concert to be treated by experts.
Grabbing the drone as it passed by had become an occasional part of Iglesias’ show so that he could turn it around and show the crowd what he sees while performing.
Enrique is having one of the biggest years of his twenty year recording career with his single Bailando (featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona) at the top of the Latin charts for months only to be replaced by El Perdon by Nicky Jam Featuring Enrique Iglesias.
