After announcing the release date of "The Cartel: The Big Boss", Daddy Yankee does what most musicians would also do, touring to support the album. He will visit 40 cities all over US and in of course, Latin America.
The reggaeton will start hitting the stage on August 31 in Chicago and visit other cities such as Miami, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Fresno and Dallas before wrapping up in Houston on October 31. Before this leg of tour, the singer will have two warm-up concerts in Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic which dates have not been announced. After the US leg, there will be more than 20 dates across Mexico, and South America that run through early December.
Within the US dates, eight year old singer Miguelito will open the acts that will hold up to 40,000 audiences. The CITGO and Wrigley sponsored tour will cost ranging from $40 to $100. There will be early tickets for fans who pre-order "The Cartel: The Big Boss" that is due June 5.
There is also a plan for further US and Latin American gigs in 2008 that will be followed by European and Asian dates. More complete details regarding this tour will be released at Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards on April 23-26.
