Bad Bunny, whose birth name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, began the string of concerts last August in Orlando. Recently, the 28-year-old was named Spotify’s most-streamed artist of 2022 (for the third consecutive time). His records received a massive 18.5 billion streams across his singles and five studio albums. 

“I think we all feel very proud of what he’s accomplished. It’s a feat that is remarkable,” Hans Schafer, the SVP of Global Touring at Live Nation, told Pollstar.

“It is huge for Latin music and unprecedented and a remarkable accomplishment on its own, regardless of genre, to see an artist of his age reaching those heights is just something that makes it very promising for us of what the future holds.”
