According to the statement, the Coliseo has taken preventive measures with their security team. “The cleaning work has already been done and we are ready to receive the visitors who will enjoy the concert tonight.”
Produced by Rafael Pina, Daddy Yankee’s Con Calma Pal’ Choli is scheduled to wrap up two days before the year ends. This is his first return to the venue in 12 years.
