Puerto Rican star Luis Fonsi performed at the 13th Premios Dial music award gala in Tenerife ahead of the five-date Spanish leg of his current world tour.

Fonsi was one of 13 Spanish and Latin artists to receive a Dial award for their contribution to Latin music, at the 13th annual Premios Dial gala organized by Spain's Latin-music 98-station network Cadena Dial, part of media holding Grupo Prisa's domestic radio division, Cadena SER. For the third year running, the gala was held in Santa Cruz, the capital of the Canary Island of Tenerife, off west Africa.
