Tego Calderón to Perform First San Juan Stadium Concert in 12 Years
Rapper Tego Calderón recently announced that he will perform his first San Juan stadium concert in 12 years. The show will take place on Friday (Aug. 28) at the Coliseo José Miguel Agrelot.
Through the course of his career, Calderón, known as one of Puerto Rico's original reggaeton artists, has spawned hits including "Cosa Buena", "Métele Sazón" and "Pa'que retozen."
According to Billboard, Don Omar and Vico C are slated to join Calderón onstage, along with a nine-member band and a DJ. On his Twitter account, Calderón also confirmed that he will be joined by DJ Adam and Paz Esperanza.

"Now new generations and kids who grew listening to me are looking for me," Calderón said during a press conference announcing the concert in San Juan.
Calderón first gained mainstream attention with 2002's El Abayarde. He also made appearances in a couple of the Fast and Furious movies. He was nominated for a 2012 Latin Grammy for The Original Gallo Del País, a project he released on his Jiggiri Records.
Back in February, Calderón released his fifth studio album El Que Sabe, Sabe, which featured the single "Dando Break" and "Pastillita" with Don Omar.
Earlier this month, it was announced that Daddy Yankee and Don Omar will embark on an upcoming joint tour billed as "The Kingdom." The 60-date tour is slated to kick off on December 5 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The partnership also includes a joint album and a TV show for the two artists.
Billboard did not reveal Yankee and Omar's complete itinerary but it was reported that the tour would run for two years.
Calderón, on the other hand, is also slated to perform at Megaton Mundial De Polito Vega on Oct. 28 alongside Pitbull, Víctor Manuel, Farruko, Elvis Crespo and more. The concert will be held at New York City's Madison Square Garden.
