Tito Nieves added to Tampa Bay Rays summer concert series




Just as they did last year with We the Kings, the Tampa Bay Rays have made a last-minute addition to their summer concert series: Latin singer Tito Nieves.

The Grammy-nominated salsa artist will perform on Saturday, Sept. 19, following the Rays-Blue Jays game, which starts at 7:08 p.m. As always, the concert is free with a game ticket.

American fans may not immediately recognize the Puerto Rican star's name, but you've almost certainly heard his saucy, 1996 English-language cover hit, I Like It Like That, in movies or commercials. If this show goes anywhere near as well as last year's set by Gilberto Santa Rosa, the Rays will be happy.

It's a busy week of music for the Rays. Tampa pop-rockers Miggs will play on the tbt* party deck at the Trop on Friday, and the Beach Boys will take the stage for a free postgame concert on Saturday night.
