·2 min read

"El Último Tour Del Mundo 2022", aka the Last World Tour 2022, isn't the last fans will see of Bad Bunny. The Puerto Rican reggaeton artist will continue traveling the world for his first-ever stadium tour.

Bad Bunny announced his upcoming "World's Hottest Tour" on Monday in an Instagram reel featuring himself, girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri and Spanish actor Mario Casas in a tropical setting.

"I was wondering … what if I announce my next tour?" the emcee said in Spanish, before teasing a new album release later this year.

In the caption, Bad Bunny wrote in Spanish, "now, 2022 has begun."

The 29-city "World's Hottest Tour," which spans the United States and Latin America, kicks off Aug. 5 in Orlando, Florida, and will visit major cities including Boston, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles, making stops in iconic venues like Fenway Park, Yankee Stadium and SoFi Stadium.

The Latin American leg of the tour kicks off Oct. 21 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and will visit cities including Buenos Aires, Argentina; Lima, Peru; Panama City; and Mexico City.

DJs Alesso and Diplo will join Bad Bunny on select U.S. dates.

Bad Bunny's Monday tour announcement follows the overwhelmingly positive reception of his "El Último Tour Del Mundo" indoor arena tour, which kicks off in February.

The 27-year-old star sold out all 35 shows of the tour, moving more than 500,000 tickets, and broke the Ticketmaster record for the most ticket sales for a tour on its first day of sales since 2018, according to a press release.

The reggaetonero also broke audience records with his first stadium concerts last December, performing at the Hiram Bithorn Stadium in Puerto Rico. "This announcement is a clear representation of Bad Bunny’s extraordinary growth as a global superstar," the release read.
