It will stop in new cities including San Diego, Portland and Tampa, among others. The trek will close on the East Coast onSeptembert 14 in Newark’s Prudential Center, and on September 15 in Elmont, NY at the UBS Arena.

“Back to Reggatón Tour" is his first since partnering with Daddy Yankee on the Kingdom Tour back in 2015, and is in support of his 2023 album “Forever King,” which featured Chencho Corleone, Maluma, Residente and more.
