The show must go on, and Daddy Yankee knows it. The reggaeton superstar has confirmed that Sunday’s (Dec. 8) concert will happen after a shooting at Coliseo de Puerto Rico was reported hours after his show on Saturday night (Dec. 7). No deaths or injuries were reported.
The arena’s management issued a statement, also published on their social media accounts, indicating that the act was classified as damage to property. The Puerto Rico police report said that they found more than 100 bullets and broken glass doors in the main entrance.READ MOREDaddy Yankee Offers Free Concert After Technical Failure During Puerto Rico Show
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.
According to El Nuevo Dia newspaper, the recording studio of Raphy Pina (Daddy Yankee’s manager) was also shot with ammunitions that match those found in the arena.
The shooting damaged the front doors and walls. The property is located in Caguas, Puerto Rico, where agents assigned to the Homicide Division and Technical Services of the Criminal Investigation Corps took over the scene.
The police department doesn’t have any suspects attached to any of the cases.
Raw. Jaded. Passionate. Vulgar. Sincere. All words that describe the lyrical themes that made Bad Bunny one of the biggest sensations of the decade. This paired with a fuming combination of explosive urbano beats had tens of thousands of concert-goers losing their minds every time El Conejo Malo queued the next song at Barclays Center on Friday (Dec. 6).
Donning a black denim jacket, jeans emblazoned with skulls that lit up, and a black surgical mask to boot, Bad Bunny emerged boosting the confidence of a full-fledged global superstar. And rightfully so: just this year, he headlined Baja Beach Fest, rocked out at Coachella, and closed the Latin Grammys at its 20th anniversary show. ADVERTISING
On Saturday, an enormous cylindrical screen hovered behind him, displaying visuals that matched every song from his three-year career, which he performed on a stage shaped like a cross. “How many of you in attendance heard my first album X 100Pre?,” the Puerto Rican rapper asked. “Thanks to all who’ve heard it; I made it with lots of love, endearment,” he said, referring to his debut album, released a year ago on Christmas Eve. The set landed Bad Bunny his first No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums Charts and ends the year as Billboard’s Top Latin Album of 2019.
But it was just three years ago when Bad Bunny broke through with his dark trap paen, “Soy Peor,” a grim and menacing confession about a young man whose heart has blackened from romantic betrayal. “Who has followed my music since the beginning?” he shouted. Then, when the star-studded “Te Boté” played, El Conejo testified the lasting power of a now classic banger. “Tu Sensualidad” brought in a more sunnier disposition before he went back to his raunchy roots with “Dile,” inspiring massive perreo outbursts all across the stadium, as did the flirty trap of “Si Tu Novio Te Deja Sola.”
