The top reggaeton icons, Daddy Yankee and Don Omar, have been known for their fair share of fights in the past. Their much anticipated tour, The Kingdom: Daddy Yankee vs. Don Omar, has officially booked 4 major cities. The sold out show on May 6, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas was followed by confirmation of shows in New York, Miami, Orlando, and Los Angeles.
The possibility of the tour was up in the air for a time. Originally set to kick off Dec. 5 in Puerto Rico, the duo switched to four sell-out shows, Dec. 3-6 that went off without a hitch. But once 2016 hit rumors swirled about a tour cancellation.
This tour is set up to simulate a boxing match, but with microphones. Each singer will sing their sets while the fans will become the referees and vote via and app designed for the concert. "I was motivated by doing something completely different -- and by the size of the offer," says Yankee. While Omar made their relationship clear, "I am not his bestfriend, and he is not my bestfriend."
The tour is set to play July 30 at Madison Square Garden in New York, August 6 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami with tickets going on sale Thursday June 9. The August 7 date at the Amway Center in Orlando and August 27 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles will go on sale June 23.
