PHOTOS: Bad Bunny lights up the Prudential Center

It was a beautiful Friday night before the Bad Bunny event at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The streets were filled with spectators running towards the show, weaving through blocks of bumper-to-bumper traffic caused by the number of cars heading towards the event. If finding parking was an Olympic sport, Friday night would have been the gold medal.

Labeled El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo (The Last Tour of the World), Bad Bunny drew sold-out crowds and many guests rushed to buy last-minute tickets online – some of the highest prices amounting to $1,000. Upon entering the arena concert center, I was instantly greeted without thousands of screaming fans in their seats, eagerly awaiting the start of the show. The atmosphere was electric and fans dressed in shark costumes were spread throughout the venue.

The lights dimmed, the tractor-trailer came on and began to rumble, shaking the entire arena, and “El Mundo Es Mío” played as an 18-wheeler style stage setup approached the audience . Bad Bunny appeared from the top of the truck trailer to wave to the crowd, shouting so loudly they drowned out the music. Pyro fired out of the truck as Bad Bunny ran back and forth along the stage. Having had the chance to see Bad Bunny the last time it performed at the Prudential Center, I knew the energy and value of the production would be high, but I never imagined this. I could tell that CMN Events and the Bad Bunny team spared no expense in putting on this show and giving the fans the show they paid for.
