Few genres that started regionally grow to truly enjoy worldwide popularity. As we’ve seen with K-pop, the tides are changing and we couldn’t be more excited for reggaeton to get the shine it so clearly deserves. After all, it’s only natural that a genre with such charismatic and impactful acts as Daddy Yankee and J Balvin would become a major cultural powerhouse as it has. And it’s as vibrant a scene as ever, as these stalwarts have proven with upcoming tours.
When the man largely responsible for transforming reggaeton into a global pop phenomenon announces a farewell tour, it only makes sense that fans everywhere would get a befitting send-off from such a legendary figure as himself. Beginning in July in Portland, this run will take him through the United States, South America and Central America before ending in Miami in December.
Nicky Jam’s path hasn’t always been the easiest, but he has much to be proud of, between legendary status in the scene, a rockstar life story and two albums he’s sat on throughout. of the pandemic. Expect a ton of festival dates in the books in the coming months where you can catch him performing the new material IRL.
By now we are all tired of the winter cold. What better way to warm up than with Bad Bunny’s World’s Hottest Tour? We still don’t know if the advertised “heat” is from the season or from him, but what we CAN tell you is that we’ll be there! It all kicks off in August in Orlando, so be sure to get your tickets before this one sells out.
The man of a million looks takes his one-of-a-kind aesthetic and pedigree reggaeton show and turns it into a mega tour. His last release, 2021 Josephis a 79-minute one-album marathon, so viewers can be sure they’re seeing an artist ready to bring it all.
Budding female reggaeton artists owe much of their rise to the top to the likes of Karol G and Natti Natasha. Each has managed to carve out a place for themselves in a genre that has been mostly dominated by their male counterparts. She just dazzled fans on the first Coachella weekend and is gearing up for a second follow-up weekend. Then, fans all over Mexico can expect her to bring the same energy to a show near them.
With their distinctive look, sound and energy, Camilo is a band not to be missed when in your town. You’ll have plenty of chances to see him on tour this year, whether you’re in New York in August or Europe in June.
We have a soft spot for artists who know multiple genres and diverse scenes. You definitely fit the bill if, like Sebastian Yatra, you have collaborations with Michael Buble, The Jonas Brothers AND K-Pop groups on your resume. Given the passion that shines through in his work, we have a hunch fans of all genres would feel right at home at a Yatra show.
For someone who’s had a 34-year career in recording and touring, Jerry Rivera still hasn’t lost his sparkle. He’s quite the heartthrob and box office he was when his career took a star turn in Puerto Rico. While there isn’t a full tour on the horizon, fans in the United States can expect one-off shows like in Chicago in May, Los Angeles in June, or Mississippi in September.
It’s telling that Univision – perhaps the biggest kingmaker in America’s Spanish-speaking community – offered Justin Quiles a Premio Juventud (Youth Award) as a Distinguished Performer.
