Today, Puerto Rico found out one of its favorite sons is coming back. At 5:55 p.m. ET, none other than the island’s curly-headed, controversial puppet La Comay came out of retirement to drop the bomb that Bad Bunny will perform at San Juan’s Coliseo on March 8.
As Bad Bunny’s significance on the world stage swells ever larger, the urbano artist hasn’t let his constantly expanding audience forget he’s 100 percent boricua. On the contrary, he used his September appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to stage a tear-jerking tribute to the victims of Hurricane María, and in doing so, completely reframed the context of summer hitazo “Estamos Bien” as a Puerto Rican anthem of resilience.
The upcoming show is going to be litter than the Las Vegas Strip. The last time El Conejo Malo stepped on a Puerto Rican stage was back in May when it took us nearly a paragraph to summarize the cast of all-star collaborators he brought with him, from Daddy Yankee to J Balvin to El Alfa. Time will tell who’s coming with Benito this time around – or if he winds up breaking Metallica’s record for tickets sold at the venue (17,286 in case you’re counting).
Pre-sales begin Wednesday, October 10, at the Coliseo, where T-Mobile customers will be able to cop starting at 10 a.m. General public sales will be available starting on Thursday at 12:01 a.m on Ticketpop.com.
If you can’t wait until March 8, Bad Bunny is performing tonight at the American Music Awards.
