During the last three years, bilingual rapper Pitbull has gained exposure from sold-out club shows and radio show festivals. Now, with multiple songs on Billboard's charts and two upcoming albums (Pitbull's Spanish set, "Armando," is slated for release in June, while his English follow-up will likely come out in the fall), the rapper has graduated to playing larger venues with an average capacity of 3,400.

Outlook: Pitbull has had five top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and tour promoter AEG Live plans to capitalize on the rapper's radio success. "One of our goals is to establish Pitbull as an artist with an incredible catalog of hits," AEG Live/Goldenvoice VP of Latin talent Rebeca Leon says. "He's got active songs everywhere."
