It seems that Bad Bunny’s stardom has no ceiling. The Puerto Rican singer breaks records with every album and every concert. His latest success? On October 4, Billboard Boxscore revealed that El Conejo Malo’s World’s Hottest Tour surpassed his record-breaking El Último Tour del Mundo earlier this year.
Let’s dig into the numbers, shall we?
Not only did the Puerto Rican star break his own record, but the numbers showed that he doubled the gross of his previous U.S. tour. The World’s Hottest Tour U.S. leg reportedly grossed $232.5 million across 21 shows. He sold a total of 944,000 tickets. These numbers average a whopping $11.1 million a night and 45,000 tickets per show. With this in mind, we can’t deny that it actually was the World’s Hottest Tour to date!
The concert series also broke venue revenue records in almost all the 15 cities he played in. His tour stops in Georgia, Miami, the Bronx, Houston, San Antonio, San Diego, and Phoenix made history – they’re now the highest-grossing performances in each venue’s history.
The detailed report also revealed that this has been “the biggest tour by a Spanish-speaking performer in Boxscore history, giving Bad Bunny the top two positions on the all-time Latin breakout.” It points out that he’s the only artist to have ever performed two $100 million tours in one year.
Clearly, Bad Bunny’s cultural pop phenomenon remains unmatched. These numbers only reflect the U.S. leg of his World’s Hottest Tour. Let that sink in!
On October 21, he’s set to continue his international tour in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He then wraps up his tour in Mexico City on December 10.
What’s next? Hopefully, some much-needed rest! It’s been a non-stop – and lucrative – year for the Puerto Rican icon.
