Daddy Yankee Announces Los Angeles Concert with Prince Royce, Yandel & More
Daddy Yankee has something very special in store for his fans in Los Angeles. He recently announced a one-night only concert with Prince Royce, Yandel and more.
As noted by Billboard, the concert, slated for Oct. 17 at the Staples Center, will also include performances by Natalia Jimenez, Arcángel, Plan B and others to be confirmed soon. Tickets will go on sale on Thursday (Sept. 3) on axs.com.
Fresh off the European leg of his King Daddy tour, Yankee announced last month that he plans to tour with Don Omar for the next two years. 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. A complete itinerary for Yankee and Omar's tour, billed as The Kingdom, has not yet been revealed.
It's been quite a busy year for Yankee. Back in April, the reggaeton artist teamed up with MetroPCS to help the company maximize their outreach to consumers. He spoke on a panel at the Billboard Latin Music Conference.
Last fall, Yankee was included in the line-up for iHeartMedia's first Latin Music Festival. Billed as iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina and modeled after the media group's iHeartRadio Music Festival, other performers included Ricky Martin, Roberto Tapia and Alejandra Guzmán.
Similarly, Dick Clark Productions recently announced that Telemundo will air the first-ever Latin American Music awards show in October. Following the initial announcement of the new awards show last year, Mike Mahan, President of DCP, said the decision was made to partner with Telemundo because it "has had proven success with the live broadcast of the Billboard Latin Music Awards." Airing for over 25 years, the Billboard Latin Music Awards is the longest-running Latin music awards show, with a substantial year-to-year increase in viewership.
In August, Telemundo aired another highly-successful show, Premios Tu Mundo. The show earned 2.4 million total viewers on Aug. 20. Nicky Jam and Daddy Yankee were the top music winners, taking home two awards each.
