Former members of Menudo opened the Súbete a Mi Moto Tour over the weekend at the Coca-Cola Music Hall in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The highlight was when the trio of Miguel, Johnny and Ricky performed "Si Tú No Estás," one of the most well-known songs of Ray Reyes, who passed away a little more than two years ago of a massive heart attack. The last time Reyes had performed the song was before the pandemic during a concert in February 2020 in Atlanta.
Before the performance, Miguel gave a brief introduction and dedicated the song to Reyes' family, who were present, his fans and of course, to Ray.
"It has been more than two years since the song was played. Today with all the respect in the world. I know it will never be heard the way he played it. But with all respect for his family, for all his loved ones, for all his fans, and with all honor for you Ray Reyes, forever Si Tú No Estás," said the artist in a shared statement.
The three former members of Menudo sang in one voice, while the screen showed a sky with clouds and a star in the center, symbolizing Ray.
The fans began to sing along, and according to their agency, many cried, shouted and applauded before the grand finale.
At the end of the performance, Johnny, Miguel and Ricky dedicated a round of applause to their late partner.
The Súbete a Mi Moto Tour continues its world tour. In March, the tour will hit several cities in Colombia, continue to Mexico for a domestic tour, and then visit some cities in the U.S., Argentina and the Dominican Republic.
