Bad Bunny Sets New Attendance Record For Puerto Rico Concert
When Bad Bunny announced that he was heading to Puerto Rico to kick off his stadium tour, fans in the Caribbean capital camped out outside the Coliseo de Puerto Rico and waited hours to purchase tickets. They’ll have to move fast though if they want to get in, because tickets for all three concerts are sold out.
Announcing the concert, the superstar took to his Instagram account Saturday and told his followers that he was performing July 28, 29 and 30 at the Choli in Puerto Rico for the kickoff of his tour. He was joined by reggaeton and trap star Arcangel who had the crowd jumping all night with their signature dance moves and steamy outfits, including bathing suits and bucket hats in bright, neon colors.
Bad Bunny smashed attendance records in his first performance at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico on Friday with 18,749 fans attending his show titled “Un Verano Sin Ti.” The crowd was filled with music lovers from every genre and age, many of them adorned in reggaeton gear.
He also gathered a group of dancers on stage who wowed the crowd with their steamy dance moves and flashy outfits, which included bathing suits, bucket hats, linen shirts and shorts in bright, neon colors.
In addition to his hits, Bad Bunny performed several songs from his latest album ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’, as well as the hit song “Titi Me Pregunto” and his new song with Arcangel, “La Jumpa,” both of which are tearing up radio stations across the country.
The energy was so strong, according to the singer’s co-star Raquel Berrios of indie band Buscabulla, that it was like a portal to another dimension.
Bad Bunny and his crew were able to pull off the record-breaking performance despite being stranded in the island for weeks after Hurricane Maria, and he even managed to set a world attendance record for a concert held at the Jose Miguel Agrelot Coliseum on the night of October 26.
It was the first time that a concert was held in a venue so large and people were able to see it on their television screens. Thousands of people watched the concert on Telemundo, which has an enormous reach in Puerto Rico and the surrounding islands.
This isn’t the first time that Bad Bunny has taken the stage in Puerto Rico, and he plans to continue his world tour there throughout 2022. He’s also going to make a stop at San Diego’s Petco Park in September as part of his “World’s Hottest Tour,” which will feature Grammy-nominated artist and music producer Alesso.
With a new tour, Bad Bunny continues to push boundaries and bring new sounds to the forefront of the industry. It’s no wonder that he has been Spotify’s most streamed artist for the past two years and is currently ranked the number one artist in the world on the streaming platform.
As a young, talented artist, Bad Bunny is an important figure in the world of pop music, and he has elevated the cultural landscape of Puerto Rico by constantly exploring its socioeconomic issues and political conundrums. By addressing them, he has created a space for young people around the world to explore their own feelings and values in a way that’s more inclusive than ever before.
