Flying directly from Los Angeles in a 22-hour chartered flight,the singer did not exhibit travel fatigue though he admitted that he needed some rest before the concert.
I had to fly for 22 hours and now I am just going to get some rest at the hotel. The main thing is to get as much rest as possible and I have one day off between each of the concerts, said Enrique.

Meanwhile,at the venue at Amanora Town Centre in Hadapsar,the production team from Only Much Louder and Enriques team worked hard to set up the stage and check all the systems. The popstar is reportedly very particular about technical details and stage preparations. His technical team and band arrived at the venue a day before the singer arrived for the concert.
Prasad Kamat,head of events at Amanora Town Centre,said arrangements have been made for 12,000 people and special modifications have been made to the stage on Enriques request,
Theres a huge ramp at the venue because Enrique is quite keen on interacting with the audience. There is also a massive LED screen,around 50 feet,which is one of the biggest set-ups in Pune. He has planned several surprises for the concert and though he hasnt revealed them yet,it is going to be an exciting show, said Manish Chandnani,a member of the production team from Only Much Louder.
