Global star Bad Bunny has added another record to his ever-expanding catalog of historic moments: the highest-grossing tour of all time by a Latinx artist.
The Puerto Rican reggaeton artist completed his latest tour, El Último Tour del Mundo, in FTX Arena in Miami Sunday and took in $116 million from 575,000 tickets sold, according to a Billboard Boxscore report.
The “Un Día” and “I Like It” rapper shattered the previous record of $101 million set by Mexican singer Luis Miguel in his own historic run from 2018 to 2019.
Bad Bunny’s flamboyant return to the stage comes after releasing two chart-topping studio albums, “YHLQMDLG” and “El Último Tour Del Mundo”, in 2020, the latter of which became the first all-Spanish album to reach No. 1 on Billboard.
The North American tour, which bears the same name as his most recent Grammy-winning album, launched in February and has performed just 35 shows, averaging more than $3 million per night in ticket sales. The average ticket costs nearly $180 to see the 28-year-old superstar perform, according to Pollstar data.
When tickets for El Último Tour del Mundo went on sale last year, intense demand sent Ticketmaster crashing, prompting fans to joke that it was harder to get Bad Bunny tickets than a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
Despite this record achievement, Bad Bunny is far from done performing this year. In January he announcement his very first world stadium tour titled The hottest tour in the world. It will begin in Orlando, Florida in early August.
Originally, World’s Hottest was meant to hit 29 cities, but due to overwhelming demand, Bad Bunny added second date in six cities, including an additional night at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. He will now perform there on September 30 and October 1.
When he’s not singing, Bad Bunny brings his talents to the small screen with appearances in WWE Matchesguest acting on”Narcos: Mexicoand music videos inspired by The Simpsons.
He also has promised fans the release date of his next album as soon as the tour is over.
