Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull Announce Co-Headlining Tour
By Kevin Rutherford
After announcing the trek on their respective Twitter accounts, the duo revealed the details in a release today (April 29). Beginning this fall, the pair, along with Colombian reggaeton artist J. Balvin, will embark on a sizable U.S. tour over about a month and a half.
The tour will kick off Sept. 12 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, running through 16 total cities before closing up shop Oct. 25 at Hollywood, Florida’s Hard Rock Live.
The duo has collaborated before, particularly on Iglesias’ 2010 comeback single “I Like It,” which shot to No. 12 in the U.S.
“There’s no better place for me than being up on stage in front of my fans,” Iglesias remarked in a statement. “And going on tour with a close friend and someone I admire, like Pitbull, is truly an honor. We really want to give everybody a show that they will remember for the rest of their lives.”
Added Pitbull: “Going on tour again with Enrique is exciting. He’s a talented music star, and also a close friend who I respect and have learned a lot from. Together we are going to give fans great music, energy and what they really deserve — to enjoy life and forget the rest for three hours.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public May 9, with a pre-sale for Citi card holders a few days before on May 6.
