Puerto Rican singer Daddy Yankee will perform in Costa Rica next Saturday, July 20th, 2019, at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium, as part of his world tour. The concert of “El Rey del Reguetón” (The King of Reggaeton) will come loaded with his best hits that, since 1994, have been positioned at the top of the world music charts.
The company “Costa Vida Presents” is in charge of bringing the artist to the country, which, in turn, hired the producer RPM TV that will have in its hands the production of the event.
“Costa Vida Presents is entering the Costa Rican market to transcend the expectations of fans. Our goal is to build long-term relationships with our partners in the music industry. We have had a great response after entering the Costa Rican market”, commented Mike Cothran, CEO, and Cooper Stetson, Talent Buyer, of Costa Vida Presenta.
Among Yankee’s most successful singles are “La Gasolina”, “Pose,” “Machucando”, “Lo Que Pasó, Pasó”, “Dura”, “En Calma”, among many others; without neglecting his album Barrio Fino, the best-selling album of the 2000s, according to Billboard magazine.
“After 12 years of absence in our country, having Daddy Yankee back in Costa Rica will be very exciting and rewarding for the thousands of fans who are waiting for him. We promise that it will be an unforgettable show, with national opening hours and many surprises that we will announce soon; our idea is to turn it into a music festival so that attendees enjoy as never before”, said Don Stockwell, CVP of Costa Vida Presents.
