When Bad Bunny sets out to do something, he does it with the authenticity and passion he has for his artistry. In doing so, he has become a global icon who continues to elevate his stardom by pushing his creativity and breaking barriers with it. Well, his efforts are continuing to pay off, especially now that his recent 35-date El Último Tour Del Mundo 2022 has officially become the highest-grossing tour by a Latine artist, according to Billboard Boxscore’s over three-decade history of recording said numbers.
According to figures reported by Billboard Boxscore, El Último Tour Del Mundo’s 35 shows grossed $116.8 million and sold 575,000 tickets. “That breaks down to $3.3 million and 16,400 tickets per night, or $4.7 million and more than 23,000 tickets in each market,” the publication reported. It overrode Luis Miguel’s earnings of $101 million in 2018-2019. Moreover, but in conversation with Bad Bunny’s agent Jbeau Lewis, Lewis told Billboard that “according to Ticketmaster, it was the third-highest sales day for any tour of all time, and would likely have broken the record had there been more dates to add.” Incredible, right?
At the beginning of this month, this particular tour was named the current “No. 1 tour in the world” by Bloomberg, who praised the artist for “having sold more than 300,000 tickets over the last month.” It surpassed current tours by other mainstream pop artists such as Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish.
This is an impressive first quarter for the two-time Grammy winner, considering it’s his first out of two tours this year alone. We can only imagine what his status will look like by the end of the year. What other milestones will he break? And lets not forget that he’s revealing the release date for his upcoming album in the next few days.
In the meantime, one thing’s for sure: Bad Bunny’s fans are waiting to support their favorite star in whatever he does next.
