20 Apr Bad Bunny Breaks Record for Fastest Selling Tour Since 2018
Puerto Rican superstar Bad Bunny has just broken another record! According to Billboard, his upcoming tour El Último Tour del Mundo becomes the fastest-selling tour since 2018.
The record was previously held by Beyonce and Jay Z for their joint On The Run II Tour.
El Último Tour Del Mundo will start in 2022 on Feb. 9. Bad Bunny’s tour will cover over 35 cities in North America, and will kick off at the Ball Arena in Denver. The title of the tour translates to The Last Tour of the World.
On top of becoming the highest-selling event in the post-pandemic era, Billboard estimates that the tour will gross somewhere between $63 million to $84 million.
This is a considerable leap from both his 2018 tour, which grossed $21.2 million and his 2019 tour, which raked in $45.5 million.
In fact, the tickets were in such high demand that the tour was extended to include 10 additional dates. Cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Miami each have at least three sold out shows.
Lately, the Latin icon has been making big waves around the world. At the 2021 Latin American Music Awards just last week, he bagged major awards like Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. Bad Bunny also took home the Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Urban Artist.
Last month, at the Grammys, the star won Best Latin Pop or Urban Album.
As Mark Yovich, president of Ticketmaster aptly summed it up, “One thing is clear: the world wants to see Bad Bunny live on stage.”
