In June, Karol G announced her first-ever U.S. headlining tour dubbed Bichota Tour, after her unapologetic and empowering single. Now, Billboard can exclusively unveil that Colombian singer-songwriter Feid will be the opening act for the entire tour.
“I was looking for an artist that I listen to a lot and that the exposure of my tour can also be a plus in their career,” Karol, who’s making the rounds with her single “Sejodioto,” tells Billboard in a statement. “Besides, I love the fact that he’s from my country and my city, Medellin! I want to show the world where we come from. I’m very grateful for Feid and his team for joining this wonderful experience that will start soon.”
Feid, a Latin Grammy-nominated artist, is currently making the rounds with his fourth studio album Inter Shibuya – La Mafia. He’s known for penning hits for J Balvin and collaborating with countless artists, including Maluma and Sech. “For a lot of people, I’m still a new artist and I want to find my space in reggaeton,” he previously told Billboard. “I don’t try to be like any other artist. I feel that I have a certain flow that characterizes my music.”
Now, the 29-year-old artist will take his unique flow and edgy reggaeton on the monthlong Bichota tour, kicking off on Oct. 20 in Denver’s Mission Ballroom with pit stops in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, and Miami before wrapping up on Nov. 27 in San Juan’s Coliseo de Puerto Rico.
“For me, it is going to be a huge door that is going to open. Ever since I began making music, for me, it is a dream to be able to tour in the USA and that Karol has given me the opportunity to accompany her by opening the shows is super important,” Feid tells Billboard. “I am very grateful to her and her entire team for the great opportunity they are giving me. We are preparing a very special show for this occasion and we are already dreaming of our own tour.”
Bichota Tour — where Karol will perform hits off of her most recent album, KG0516 — is presented by Smirnoff, produced by AEG Presents, and booked by UTA. Buy tickets on Friday (Oct. 1) on Ticketmaster here.
