Wisin & Yandel Earn Career-High Touring Earnings With Puerto Rico Shows

Wisin & Yandel roar atop the Hot Tours recap (see under) dated Jan. 12, 2019 by a margin of greater than two-to-one. Over 4 exhibits (Nov. 30, Dec. three, 6, 9, 2018) at San Juan’s Coliseo de Puerto Rico, the Latin duo grossed $6.2 million from 105,396 tickets bought, based on figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

The gross makes these late-2018 dates the largest engagement of Wisin & Yandel’s profession, greater than doubling their earlier excessive of $2.eight million and 50,033 tickets on the similar venue on Dec. Four-7, 2009. In truth, their high 5 grossing engagements have been all multi-show stints on the Coliseo de Puerto Rico. In addition to the 2018 and 2009 performances, they struck gold in March of 2008 ($2.Four million), 2007 ($2.Four million), and 2006 ($1.5 million). These 5 stories mark the duo’s solely million-dollar grosses.

Wisin & Yandel’s newest run on the San Juan area can be vital for the venue itself. Their $6.2 million gross units a file as the world’s high grossing and top-attended engagement ever, surpassing Aventura’s $Four.5 million and 76,034 tickets from 5 exhibits on Dec. Four-10, 2008.

The record-setting four-night run in Puerto Rico follows a five-year hiatus for Wisin & Yandel. In the interim from 2013 to 2018, each Wisin and Yandel hit No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart individually, Wisin with Los Vaqueros: La Trilogia, and Yandel with De Lider A Leyenda and Dangerous. Their collaborative comeback, 2018’s Los Campelones Del Pueblo, debuted at No. 2 on the chart dated Dec. 29, 2018.

Every week after Wisin & Yandel hit their all-time excessive in San Juan, Marc Anthony arrived on the Coliseo de Puerto Rico and grossed $2.5 million on Dec. 14-15, sufficient to rank No. three on the most recent Hot Tours tally. It’s Anthony’s second greatest engagement of 2018, following the $three.Four million he grossed on Nov. 16-17 at Miami’s American Airlines Arena.

Rounding out the highest 4 are two artists in the midst of ongoing Las Vegas residencies at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater. Gwen Stefani and Florida Georgia Line grossed $2.eight million and $2.three million, respectively.
