‘Tis the age of the Bunny. There’s no denying that with Bad Bunny’s astronomical rise to prominence, El Conejo Malo has redefined global stardom on his own terms.
With his chart-topping streak and World’s Hottest Tour, he continues to pulverize records across the globe. According to Billboard‘s Boxscore report, the Puerto Rican artist makes history as top touring act of 2022, with a gross of $373.5 million from 1.8 million tickets across 65 shows (with 20 Latin American stadium shows still left to tally). He is Billboard‘s Artist of the Year for these reasons and many more.
In our recent Bad Bunny cover story, Leila Cobo, Billboard’s chief content officer Latin/Español, reports: “World’s Hottest Tour broke venue revenue records in 12 of the 15 U.S. markets that it played, including New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C., averaging $11.1 million per show — the biggest average gross by any artist in any genre in Boxscore history (dating back to the 1980s), as well as the biggest Latin tour.”
The world’s hottest superstar unofficially kicked off the first leg on July 28th, where Benito invited eight guests to perform in his native island at Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot: Chencho Corleone, Jhayco, Bomba Estéreo, Buscabulla, Villano Antillano, Tommy Torres, Arcángel, and Jowell & Randy. With 18,749 ticket buyers in the San Juan stadium, Benito also broke the attendance record there previously held by Metallica. His North American official guests included Diplo and Alesso, and the Bunny hopped to 16 cities total for 22 dates.
As for his second leg in Latin America, Benito has continued to set the bar high. His first stop was at Dominican Republic’s Estadio Olímpico Félix Sánchez on October 21, where he was joined by Tokischa, Rauw Alejandro, Toño Rosario, Ángel Dior, and others. His Latin American stint includes 13 different countries that include Peru, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Panamá and more. On Dec. 10, El Conejo Malo will conclude in Mexico City’s iconic Estadio Azteca.
