New York's own La Mega 97.9FM presented "The Biggest Reggaeton Concert In The World", Megaton 2005 live from Madison Square Garden on November 24, 2005, Thanksgiving Day. Megaton 2005 was a sold out event that featured the talents of veteran reggaeton artists Daddy Yankee, Ivy Queen, Hector "El Father" and Voltio, as well as seasoned artists Tego Calderon, Don Omar.


Newcomers to the event included Angel Y Khriz, Alexis Y Fido, John Erick, Noztra, and Adassa. Wisin Y Yandel were also scheduled to perform, but early in the evening the nights host (La Mega's own Alex Sensation) informed the crowd that the duo wouldn't not perform due to Yandel's illness.

They group was replaced by a special guest, later revealed to be Mr. Vegas of dancehall fame. he concert began with a John Erick performance of the hits "Tembleque" and "Bachatdem" from his album "Peso Completo". He was followed by female artists Adassa, and later Noztra, a Dominican reggaeton artist who performed hits from his album "Yall aint Ready". Next up was the duo Alexis Y Fido who performed their hits "El Palo" and "Tocale Bosina" along with other songs from their debut album. They were followed by another up and coming duo, "Los MVP" Khriz Y Angel, who got the crowd excited as they performed their hit "De Lao A Lao" featuring Gocho who accompanied them on stage during the performance. Angel warmed the audience up by bringing a child on stage to help him sing along several of their songs.

Once the the rookies were finished, it was time for the vets to take the show to the next level. Up first was Julio Voltio who had the crowd going crazy with his hit "El Bumper", yet it wasn't until Hector "El Father" came out on stage that the crowd was up on their seats. Hector had the audience in the palm of his hands right out the gate as he performed his hits "Noche De Travesura" and "Tu Quiero Duro" along with his verse from the Luny Tunes produced "Mayor Que Yo". The highlight of the evening was the completion of his performance with his current hit "Calor Traido Pol" aka "Dale Calor"
 
Don Omar came out strong performing all of his well known hits including "Dale Don Dale", "Dile", and "Ella Y Yo" from Aventura's latest album, and had the crowd singing along with him througout "Donqueo." Tego Calderon followed the Don with a slew of his older joints including "Guasa Guasa", "Pa Que Retozen" and "Elegante De Boutique". Midway into his performance he was joined by Don Omar to perform their duet "Bandoleros" off the "Los Bandoleros" album to an excited crowd.
 
As Fat Joe's summer anthem "Lean Back" instrumental blared through the speakers at the Garden, and a special effects video showed on the big screen, the crowd waited in anticipation for La Caballota herself Ivy Queen to show up on the stage. La Diva made her presence known as she started off her performance with a medley of different tracks including Pitbull's "Culo" and Sasha's "Dat Sexy Body", as well as her own rendition of Don Omar's "Dile". She followed up with hits "Segun Tu", "Te Querido Te He Llorado" from "Mas Flow 2" and "Dile" off her own album.

To close out the evening appearing from under a giant black box in the middle of the stage, El Cangri himself Daddy Yankee came out strong to his latest single "Rompe" surrounded by a sea of dancers. Yankee continued to wow the crowd with his performance of "Machete" and "Mirame." He then went on to surprise the crowd by bringing out Pharrell of the Neptunes to perform a rendition of Snoop Dogg's "Drop it Like its Hott". The duo then concluded with a performance of their song "Mamacita" from Pharrell's upcoming solo debut. Yankee topped off the night with his performance of his #1 hit "Gasolina" from the previously released "Barrio Fino" album. Next year, don't be left out in the cold without tickets to Megaton.
