Don Omar, Vico C and other Puerto Rican urban music pioneers are expected to join the rapper and reggaeton original onstage.

Rapper Tego Calderón, known as one of Puerto Rico’s original reggaeton artists, will perform a stadium concert in San Juan on Aug. 28. Calderón, who has maintained his underground cred as well as his massive popularity, has not given a large-scale show on the island in 12 years. He will appear at the Coliseo José Miguel Agrelot (the arena best known as the Choliseo) on Aug. 28.

The 43-year-old artist, known for outspoken socially-conscious songs anchored by an irresistible Caribbean groove, will perform tracks from a career during which he has left his fans wanting more, including “Cosa Buena", "Métele Sazón" and “Pa'que retozen.”  

“Now new generations and kids who grew listening to me are looking for me,” Calderón said during a press conference announcing the concert in San Juan.

Don Omar, Vico C and other Puerto Rican urban music pioneers are expected to join Calderón onstage, along with a nine-member band and a DJ.
